“A great home away from home”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We stay in this hotel over a weekend every November for a recurring event. We travel with two other returning customers. We recognize some of the staff from year after year. The kindness and efficiency with which the hotel is run keeps us coming back. The rooms are clean and well sized. It allows us to be comfortable. They have wonderful staff who recognize the need to treat their customers with sensitivity.

Rooms a little noisy - rooms at the front of the hotel suffer from traffic noise. Generally there's little padding between rooms (can hear the toilet flush next door). The rooms need newer carpets. Breakfast is ok - adequate for business travelers.

I stay at this hotel frequently, the staff is friendly and cooperative, the hotel and rooms are very clean, they recycle, the bed linens and towels are high quality, the bed is super comfee and the climate controls are quiet. It is safe for people traveling and the staff makes sure you are taken care of and you don't have to worry if you forget something. I really like this hotel.

The Doubletree was well worth the rate; a great value. This was an excellent stay. The room was clean. The cookies were great. The bellman was awesome. The staff were great. The breakfast was awesome, though a bit expensive. The service was very good. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the Wilmington Delaware area.

This hotel appeared modest from the outside, but was conveniently located, had a very nice room, and wonderful personnel. Unfortunately, it was equipped with a window-unit AC/heater that would cut on loudly periodically and wake me up. Had it not been for this, I would rate this "Very Good".

Hotel facility was clean and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, however the bathroom smelled very musty. That hasn't been a problem on other stays at this hotel.

I needed to go to Wilmington for one night and secured the Double Tree on line. My expectations were "it would be OK" but turned out to be WOW! Completely renovated, lobby and rooms. Beautifully done, clean, and accompanied by very pleasant staff. The room was very large, high ceilings, great bedding and towels, a safe, a small refrigerator, large screen TV and surprisingly (in the bathroom) a sign that stated that the hotel provides all kinds of toiletries for free. (razor and shaving cream, toothbrush and tooth paste, deodorant, etc.) All you needed to do was ask. It renovation was tastefully done and the location of the Double Tree is great. It is one block off of Market Street and a block away from the Opera House and restaurants. Parking at other hotels in Wilmington average $16.00 a night. At the Double Tree the cost was $10.00. It also has a bar and restaurant, the menu looking quite reasonable. An overall very pleasant experience. The cost of the room was $129.00.
