While meeting business colleagues for an overnight stay, I found this hotel to be a warm respite on a weary day. After waking to enough snow to create traffic snarls, delays and all sorts of stressful issues, I was relieved to see that everyone at the hotel, from the doorman, to the front deskperson (bearing the requisite warm cookie) to the smiling person vacuuming the hallway, all helped to ease me into a relaxing stay. My team enjoyed a well-prepared dinner, which included both surprisingly great eats and excellent service! Generally when a restaurant has a limited number of guests, the food service suffers, but not so in this case: the breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit, etc, was top notch for a hotel breakfast! The coffee, both late-night decaf at dinner, and high-test at breakfast, were some of the best I've ever had! The room was comfy, but a little dark. Overlooking the indoor pool, I didn't care for the chlorine smell, so avoid it if you're like me. A little plumbing problem, quickly rectified, was not one the staff would have detected before my arrival. I would definitely stay here again if in Wilmington.
