“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Ideal location to everything that is fun downtown, clean hotel, brand new, 2nd floor pool, convenient and courteous valet parking (Will is #1!!!). Stayed the night before my niece's graduation and I have already booked my return long weekend vacation trip at this same location. I can't wait to come back! Also, worth noting that hard-working and honest housekeeping staff who not only kept my room immaculate but also turned in my iPod that I accidentally left behind. 3 days later and my iPod is back home safe. Thanks everyone!

First time visited Wilmington and loved the location of the hotel. Rooms were all new and pretty spacious. pool area was nice with a fire pit. the inner rooms closer to the pool are less noisy due to the surrounding area. This hotel is good for anyone looking to be close to the downtown area. No can needed.

This hotel will satisfy the picky business traveler with ease. From the nicely done rooms with workstations, to the modern bathrooms, I really had a good stay.
The staff from the valet guys to front desk were all very nice.
Walkable to everything downtown is a plus and some rooms even have a view of the river.
I would have no problem recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better views than others so you just have to ask.

We enjoyed our stay at the new downtown Wilmington NC Courtyard. The room was clean, bed firm and staff accommodating. It took us awhile to be organized at getting things out of our car as parking is quite a distance from the hotel and we're used to having it at hand. The valets were very patient with us. There was a little street noise on the 6th floor, but we were so tired we just turned over. There wasn't anymore noise than in other hotels. In fact, less than being next to the ice machine or elevator. It is a great location for enjoying the restaurants and shopping downtown. We will definitely consider this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: If having a bathtub is important to you, request a room with one. Most only have showers. The fron...

I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience at this Courtyard. Everything was clean, modern and well managed. Whoever designed / decorated this place did a fantastic job. Cool patterns, textures and vibrant colors throughout.

The hotel has only been open a few months and many locals don't even know it is there. If you're searching for a reasonable place to stay downtown, this is it. Never met a more friendly staff in my life who went out of their way to help. Donna at the front desk was awesome and stood out, but everyone was gracious and pleasant to deal with.

WiFi was fast and reliable, and more importantly easy to connect to.

Beds were soft and pillow were plump and cushy.

Only downside to this place is you will have to pay $15/night to valet park or use a garage a couple blocks away for $8.

I feel bad writing this bad review, because it isn't at all the Marriott's fault. But. There is a night club directly across the street (Grace Street) from the Marriott that is open Thursday through Saturday nights. When I was there, the night club was in full swing, with the action spilling out into the street. Plenty of loud, sustained booming sounds well into the early morning hours, and even a cop car or two to try to break up the fights. A very nice guy at the front desk said they've been trying to do something about it, but no luck so far, obviously. If you're staying Sunday through Wednesday, I'm sure you'll have a lovely time. The rooms are clean, spacious, and relaxing. Fantastic shower! Plenty of good restaurants and cafes within walking distance. If only it weren't for that pesky night club across the street....

Room Tip: Thursday through Sunday, get a room as far away from Grace Street as possible.

Green Features: As many other chains now do, Marriott gives you the option of re-using your linens instead of having them changed every day.

Stayed for 2 nights and it was such a nice hotel! Its so clean and the rooms are beautiful! Cute pool area with gas fireplace. Nice Gym. Its a short walk to the Riverwalk, shops, restaurants etc...We didnt use the valet or the parking deck, we just parked on the street at night and it was no problem at all. My sisters and I had adjoining rooms , with super comfortable beds. Manager was attentive and very nice. Staff very friendly. I will stay here again.
