We traveled to Wilmington last weekend to enjoy the Azalea Festival and spent 2 nights at Taylor House Inn. This is a perfect location - we parked the car on Friday and didn't move it until our check out on Sunday. Scott gave great recommendations for events and restaurants and we took advantage of his knowledge and were so pleased!!! Be prepared for Scott's gourmet breakfasts - absolutely delicious, Scott goes the extra mile with attention to every detail to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable, from a fresh bowl of flowers to a dish of Easter candy in your room. We stayed in the Peace Room, and it lived up to it's name - a large room, very quiet, and a wonderfully comfortable bed. We will definitely make Taylor House our place to stay on all our trips to Wilmington.
