A good friend of mine told me to check out Hotel Tarrymore for my wedding weekend on August 3rd. After touring with the very nice girl at the front desk I was sold. This hotel has everything you are looking for during a long stay. I told my family and we were able to book almost the entire hotel from Thursday to Monday. We had all of the rooms surrounding the atrium, which made it the hang out place all weekend with it's spacious living room and kitchen area. The suites all have large living room spaces, bathrooms and bedrooms. The atrium was the perfect place to get ready with my 6 bridesmaids, mom and grandmother all while having our photographer, make up artist and hair stylist there and we still could've fit more in! I can't imagine getting ready anywhere else. My photographer took amazing photos and they have become some of the most talked about pictures in my wedding album. The make up artist commented on how great the lighting was for make up. We had several people come back to the hotel with us between the ceremony and reception and they all wish they could've stayed there. Since we were staying there for 5 days and 4 nights it was great having the full kitchens in each suite. We were able to go grocery shopping and truly feel like we were at home while staying at Hotel Tarrymore. If you are planning a wedding and are looking for a great place to get ready I strongly recommend that you book at Hotel Tarrymore and use the atrium. Also if you are just planning to come to Wilmington to do some sight seeing then Hotel Tarrymore has a great location, just a block from all the restaurants and shopping that you're looking for! The staff was amazing and were always very polite and helpful. Hotel Tarrymore is where you want/need to stay in downtown Wilmington.
