New Bern is a beautiful little town with a lot of history. The Hilton is well-located within easy walking distance of downtown and many historical homes. The hotel is decent and the breakfast buffet very good. Staff working at the buffet were very pleasant and courteous.

There is one twist though, check-out is at noon I believe and I had some work to do then was going to check-out at 11:00 to catch my plane. At about 8:30 housekeeping came by and said they needed to strip the room (towels, sheets). I told them I wasn't leaving until 11:00 and they said they still had to do it now. Nice. I had to move things around so that they could take care of their business. I travel a lot and have never had that happen before. And this at a Hilton?

Room Tip: Riverside view, go for it.

Like to Dance ?? This is where you have to report every Friday and or Saturday evening. So bring your dancing shoes, enjoy a good meal in the restaurant book for the night, dance the night away to the live music even at "the dock at the bay" and may be have a nigth cap at the bar before hitting the sack. This is the place to be when you like to dance and have a good time.
Also a superb place to stay when in town for business. Beautiful view, perfect rooms easy and very close to town.

Room Tip: Good for week end and dancing, also relaxed place for business Stay!

Currently staying at this Hilton and as the title states, I've been here 3 days now and have yet to have any hot water. I'm told they are working on it. Most of the staff seem indifferent. I remained patient and have "enjoyed" my cold showers. But hoping before I leave tomorrow they will be done working on it. Obviously I expected a little better from a Hilton. Guess not.

Having just moved to North Carolina from Europe, we have enjoyed exploring our new home state. New Bern, and the Hilton, soon to be a Doubletree, certainly exceeded our expectations. The hotel staff was "Southern town friendly" and cheerfully accommodated our every request. The location, as often mentioned, was scenic and special and was within easy walking distance of historic sights and shopping. Sitting directly on the Trent River, the Hilton surely had the best view of the city's attractive waterfront as well as direct access to a scenic river walk located along the confluence of the Trent and Neuse Rivers. We found our room comfortable, the bed and pillows excellent, and the bathroom, while a bit tight, was just fine as well. The hotel's restaurant, Christoph's served an excellent breakfast buffet and their Friday night "Seafood Exploration" was very good as the personable chef, Sonny Chadwick, cooked the seafood dishes to order in the dining room. Our two nights in New Bern were more than adequate to leisurely see the sights and enjoy the peace of quiet of the hotel's superb location.

Room Tip: We had a third floor river view room, a very special view, resist the temptation for a river view ba...

Our experience was very good. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel lounge and decks have a super view of the yacht basin and the curving bridges over the rivers. The city street view from our room was great. The location cannot be beat! You can walk to everything.
