Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed at the hotel for several nights at the end of May while in Delaware for our son's wedding. The hotel was nicely appointed, and our suite was very comfortable.The restaurant was a great spot for breakfast, and allowed our extensive family to get together in the morning to regroup. We also hosted a delicious brunch for over 100 people the morning after the wedding, and were extremely pleased with the quality of the food and service. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and made the entire experience wonderful.

I have been going back and forth about placing my review on The Double Tree by Hilton Wilmington, Delaware for almost a month now. I just finished placing a couple reviews of restaurants I recently enjoyed. I like to give credit where credit is due, which is why I always like to share a good experience on Trip Advisor by inviting others to have the pleasant experience I have enjoyed. We work too hard for our money and I, myself don’t like to be disappointed, which leads me to where I’m headed.
Choosing Double Tree by Hilton, Wilmington was my biggest regret. Back in February, I checked out hotels in the Wilmington area to accommodate some out of town guests for my husband’s 50th surprise party being held two miles away from the Double Tree. I did look at the Double Tree a few weeks before hand as a potential place for the party, but it didn’t have the intimate atmosphere I was looking for. So, I decided to go with the Country Club instead and was more than pleased with my decision. However, I still needed to fins a hotel to accommodate my guests. The Double Tree was a nice looking hotel, but what really sold me was that they have a shuttle service. This was perfect for the guests to check in and not have to worry about driving back to the hotel. I booked a block of ten rooms, the shuttle and requested with each booking in my block to include breakfast and put the breakfast on my charge (a little thank you to everyone for coming). So it begins……
Mind you, I booked this in February as my husband’s surprise party is/was on June 21st. On May 1st the invitations were mailed, but being the organized freak that I am, I called the Double Tree to confirm my reservations (7 weeks in advance), go over the shuttle service, rooms ect. I was told that since I reserved through they’re online reservation number, the shuttle should not have been reserved and I did not have ten rooms on a block, but rather ten rooms were to be charged to my account! Really, do you honestly think I’m going to sleep in ten rooms in one night??? I could see if I reserved ten rooms for others, but wouldn’t that require me to also give the name of the people checking in? I was told that the shuttle is an independent service through this Double Tree and reservations had no right to reserve it. I asked the hotel how this could be fixed, she simply said, oh, we recommend this shuttle service and gave me the number. I was told the bill would be $800.00 to pick up the guests at two different times and drop everyone off following the party (shuttle service three times in 6 ½ hours to drive 2 mi. Now, I’m not blaming the shuttle service (they are a business) and they did a great job. I just cannot believe the hotel didn’t blink an eye to think it was fine for me to pay $800.00 for their mistake, Unbelievable.
Long story not as long as the story, the hotel paid half the shuttle, told me as an apology that the breakfast would be on the hotel, and they have worked things out and were able to do the block. Oh, and the girl had a nerve to tell me, thank GOD you called to confirm! The BOOM…..the breakfast was not picked up (I paid the bills), we did not get a block, we were on different floors although the guests requested to have our rooms together and they said it will be done (not). My block was supposed to be ten rooms. Six (12) of us were able to get rooms and four (8) others were told they were booked. My other guests had to stay at two other hotels. This was a horrible experience. I am still disappointed and I was embarrassed as I had to explain this to our guests that weren’t able to get the room.
To make matters worse, no one called following our stay to ask if everything went well. They just didn’t care. Also, I received a survey from Double Tree and gave a terrible rating and explained myself in the comments. Too funny, they emailed me back, said we saw we fell short; we’re spending Five million dollars on renovations! Really??? Do you think I care after what you put me through?

We stayed here for one night because we were in town for a family birthday cook-out.. The hotel was clean and the rooms were very nice and the bed was very comfy. We eat and had a few drinks at the bar/restuarant. I would stay here again. The staff were very friendly.

Very nice hotel, conveniently located - internet service was not good, but the room was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Housekeeping could have done a better job with the vacuum cleaner, but the bathroom and beds were very clean. Air conditioning unit was very noisy but did keep the room cool and with the hot week we were having, the noise was overlooked! Cookies were awesome!

We stayed here one night for a family affair. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location was very easy to access from 95 and plenty of food places near by. The rooms were clean and modern. Booking online offered the best discount. I only wish there were a few more handicapped parking spaces.

A group of us stayed here for my son's wedding in June. They reserved a block of rooms for us at a great price, so we had a decent crowd. The bride and groom's suite was included for the price of a regular room and was very nice. (Avani was great to work with.) One disappoint was that the hotel bar recently switched to an outside franchise and was not yet permitted to stay open after 11:00pm on a Sunday night. Our reception ended at 8:30 so we were counting on the hotel bar for the "after hours party". Even after trying to bribe the bartender, they wouldn't bend, no matter how much we tried :-). However, to compensate, the bar manager offered to set us up in a private room for as long as we wanted, for free...With whatever beer, wine or liquor we wanted to purchase before the bar closed. Now that's service!! As it turns out, there is a pretty cool bar right next door that does stay open late on Sundays so we just strolled on over there for until closing.
Our hotel rooms were clean and the managemnt staff very polite. They were able to get rooms from the previous night cleaned for us to check in early for the wedding. They were also very gracious about late checkout. (Very important when partying late after a wedding.) There is ample free parking and as I said, a bar within 25 yards from the hotel if their's is closed.
All in all a very good experience for a very good price. We plan on going staying here again in the near future.

Room Tip: The hotel has two towers. If staying here with multiple couples, ask to stay in the same tower. It...
