Positive Reviews

Convenient Waterfront Location

Travelers really like the waterfront location of The Westin Wilmington with many adding that it’s an excellent place to explore the local area with a theater, museums and restaurants just steps from the hotel. A few have also added that the views of the Christina River from their rooms are fantastic.

Super Clean

The state of the rooms seem to keep many guests happy with everything nice, clean and in order. Tidyness is definitely a plus according to several people who have stayed here.

Awesome Suites

Travelers looking for larger accommodations may just want to book one of the executive suites because they feature extra room to move around, not to mention a separate seating area, small kitchen and a place to dine.

Negative Reviews

Freezing Indoor Pool

The temperature of the indoor pool seem to be a tad bit too cold for a few guests’ liking. However, it doesn’t seem to be a common issue and is one that can be easily fixed by management.

Crowded Lobby

Since the hotel is so close to the Chase Center, at times the lobby can get crowded with people in town for a meeting or convention.

Need to Pay for Wi-Fi

Guests who need to stay connected have been very disappointed to find out that they have to pay for Wi-Fi in their rooms. However, there is complimentary Wi-Fi in the lobby, and members of the Starwood Preferred Guest Program who book their accommodations through one of the related Starwood websites or apps also enjoy free Wi-Fi.
