"River view made our day"
Check in is a stone throw away at the Hilton. The Hilton is usually more the type of hotel we prefer to stay, however we would definitely stay at the Riverview Suites again since all the Hilton amenities are shared. The room was dated, but that was definitely overlooked for the terrace and view. We stayed here the final night of a long weekend at the […] beach. We were also grateful for space to entertain and meet with relatives who also commented that this was a place they wished they had considered. Within easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars in this quaint little city. Just a few minutes drive to the airport the next morning. The only complaint was it did not seem that the A/C was working at full capacity, however the ceiling fans made it pleasant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Riverview Suites Wilmington NC"
Suite was very nice for overnight stay. Clean, neat, convenient. As others have stated, be aware of parking fee but parking is very convenient. Furniture in living room could use updating. Looks nice but a little soft for our liking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"woken at 4 an 430am"
This hotel is in an amazing locale and very clean. We were woken 2 times by loud knocking on our door Saturday night however and the hotel did not respond to our room as I requested. It was actually pretty frightening. Front desk stated it was a man looking for his friend...we were very tired the next day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, nice bedding, beautiful view."
We sat on the balcony and enjoyed the view of the Cape Fear River!Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the location of this hotel and parking was very convenient. The beds were not very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There is no indication that you have to check in at Hilton nearbyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were so excited to stay at this hotel, but potential guests, PLEASE BEWARE! The first room that we were given looked like a crime scene. The carpets were covered in stains, it was on 3rd floor so the views were bad, and the furniture and bedding were absolutely horrible! The Hilton Hotel across the street manages this property, so thankfully, they […] were very accommodating in getting us a new room which was much nicer. If you are planning a trip to Wilmington, I would recommend the Hilton Hotel as opposed to these suites. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great location to historical district & riverwalk"
Overall, I enjoyed the stay and the location. The front door needs to be replaced! It doesn't fit and I had to request that a weather stripping plate be added to the bottom of the door. It was obvious someone had tried to break-in by the condition of the door lock plate - bent and scratched. Hotel staff was very helpful and responsive to my requests. […] Not pleased with the internet service - it's not wireless so you are provided a ethernet cord and box! Unfortunately, my riverview was blocked the entire week by a Coast Guard ship that's in port for 6 weeks. This is a normal schedule...6 weeks in port and 6 weeks out to sea. By the way, there are no luggage carts at the suites, but the elevator is quick. It should be known that this property is up for sale, one suite/condo at a time.

"Nice but a little confusing"
Overall I would stay here again. The only issue was that we weren't told that we had to check in across the street at The Hilton to get our room key and parking pass. Also, the sign on the actual building didn't say Riverview Suites. Besides that bit of confusion it was good. Oh, and the Coast Guard ship was docked outside the sliding glass door and […] woke us up by honking its horn. But the river view is worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Room very spacious with full kitchen. Pleasant surprise that we were able to use all of the amenities at the Hilton which was located right across the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
I would hate to be the room next to ours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location overlooking river. Lots of room."
Great location. Functional balcony overlooking river. Two units on each end have the best balcony (all floors). Lots of space for two.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Historical Wilmington District - Close"
Very close to the historical Wilmington district. Right across from the battleship USS North Carolina. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance. Right on the Cape Fear River. Very enjoyable experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
I went on vacation with 2 of my buddies. We are all 25 years old and had a blast. The hotel is right on the boardwalk and is a block away from all the bars. We did get a warning from security for being "too loud." And got charged $18 after we checked out with no explanation. Regardless, the price we got at hotels.com was amazing and we are very sat […] isfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good and Bad"
The location of the suites is superb. You couldn't ask for a more convenient place to stay. Each suite is individually owned, therefore the specifics could differ depending on which one you stay in. Our suite didn't have a full size refrigerator and the small unit it did have didn't work. It took more than a day for maintenance to check it out and they […] ended up having to bring a fridge and put it in the hallway. The maintenance guy was friendly and helpful, unlike several of the guest service reps. There is a no smoking/no pet policy in the suites, but it was clear someone had broken that rule in ours. There was a stale tobacco smell, especially in the bedroom. I checked, and the air filter was caked with dust. I'm not sure whose responsibility it is to change the filter, whether its the homeowner or Hilton management, but clearly it had not been done in quite some time. Housekeeping didn't come until the third day when I called and requested service. The housekeeping staff was very friendly, though they didn't speak English and had a hard time understanding what I needed. I also wasn't thrilled about the $9+ a day parking fee. I feel like that is something that should be included in the price. Overall, I believe it was better than a regular hotel room, but I feel there could have been some things done to make it better. I would consider staying there again, as long as it was a different suite than the one we had this trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay at the Riverview Suites. I stayed in room 602. It was a one bedroom condo, simply decorated. The view of the Coast Guard ship was awesome. The ship is directly on the river so when you open up your curtains you get to see this wonderful view. Not to far behind the ship is a great view of the Battleship. This hotel is very close to […] all of the downtown shops. You can walk and enjoy them. This was a great hotel and in a great location downtown. It only takes about 20 mins to get to the beach from here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I could never get the ethernet to work. There is no wireless.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff that manages Riverview Suites (Hilton) was very accommodating and tried to resolve issues that we had regarding room location due to late submittal by Hotels dot com.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It did not feel like a hotel room. The setting was beautiful. The suite was very comfortable and the views were the best we have seen in Wilmington. Much better than a standard hotel!!! The only downside was the internet connection. We were not able to make it work even with the kit we were given.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice condo across from the water."
Air conditioning wasn't working the first night, but the staff repaired it right away. Very courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location on river."
Staff at Hilton very pleasant and helpful; quick to accommodate my request. For my disabled husband, view from balcony was wonderful, even from inside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"HUGE ROOM, beautiful view of the river"
It was almost the best part of the trip opening the door to the hotel and seeing how large it is. We were so excited and jumping around the suite like idiots, but we didn't care. It was that nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
A great location, right on the river. We were a five-minute walk from nearly anything you would want to do in Wilmington. The only downside was the bed was possibly the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. And the WiFi that they advertise did not seem to exist.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice change but fix the card reader!"
I enjoyed the hotel it is a nice change from the Hilton hotel rooms across the street. The only issue I have is with the door access to the entrance. Had lots of trouble getting the electronic key to open the door. Had to make multiple in some cases 15 attempts before door would unlock.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fantastic....had a great time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
What a location! Great view, clean rooms. Went to Wilmington for long weekend, and couldn't be more happy with Riverview Suites. Every room has a great view to the waterfront. Walking distance away from everything in historical Wilmington. 10 min from the Beach. Will definitely book again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a Condo not a Hotel first of all. There no room service or anything at all just towel service. I had no phone service at this location and there only WIFI Ethernet cable provided. The Condo was clean very,Secured Building, and Excellent Staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Getaway for Couples!!"
Excellent location!! Private balcony over looking the Cape Fear River. Walking distance to downtown restaurants and bars as well as Riverwalk restaurants! Only a 20 minute drive to Wrightsville Beach and walking distance to all of the downtown nightlife. Perfect location!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place to stay when you are in Wilmington. Hilton runs the Riverview Suites and you need to go to their front desk to check in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
Fabulous balcony view, full, modern kitchen, decent sofa bed, really good queen bed. Definitely plan to go back. Right across river from U.S.S. North Carolina, worth every penny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is right on the river and i had a wonderful view! I loved sitting on the balcony looking at the sunset over the river.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great rooms, better than expected."
My family and I were attending a wedding in the Wilmington area, the location was perfect right across from the river and a block away from downtown shops and resturants. The room was spacious with a nice kitchenette. Some furnishings looked a little dated, but were very clean. Unfortunately River View Suites did not have WiFi only DSL connection so […] IPADS were not usuable in the rooms. Other than that awesome stay. Staff were very curteous and helpful.

We really liked this place! There were 4 of us staying here! It was really nice and clean and the location was great, however 2 of us needed to stay on the pull out couch and couldn't because it was so uncomfortable and that says a lot for us!!! We also couldn't find any sheets for the pull out so we called over to the Hilton and they said they were […] bringing them right up. No one ever came!!!! So this was all very disappointing because we had hoped to stay there in the future. Everything else was smooth! I am very happy that we booked through Expedia. Parking was free for the entire weekend because we booked through Expedia. I would recommend this place for a couple of 2 since the bedroom had a very nice bed with sheets!

"Great hotel on the riverfront"
Hotel staff was very accomodating from check-in to check-out. Room was better than expected...super clean, private and quiet. Convenient parking. Excellent location in historic down town Wilmington.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was great-- especially the view of the battleship. I would highly recommend Riverview to friends and family. Wilmington is a beautiful city and being within walking distance of so much was a great treat. Thanks so much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great central location from which to enjoy downtown Wilmington and the riverfront. The only slightly strange thing is that you have to go to the Hilton to check in. It's only about a block away, so, no big deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Under the radar and a real gem !"
Our experience was outstanding from top to bottom. We got the choice condo that overlooked the river and the unit was super nice. My family members are very particular and they raved about this place. It is also very reasonably priced. We will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
The carpet was disgusting. Otherwise everything else was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for me and wife"
Been here before an will continue to keep coming back. All rooms have a view on the river looking at the USS NC. A block walking distance from local shops an food. Room is always clean and as expected. Bed mattress is pretty stiff, just not what we prefer at home. Me and wife usually stay here for birthday weekends or other events when we want privacy […] instead of staying with friends in wilmington. Living room area is plenty room to host a small group of people for a get togethor before going out at night. Parking is good right outside in a parking deck. Staff is front desk at hilton across street. Will continue to come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice place to stay, and very close to everything."
This was a nice little hotel suite. If you needed it there was a small washer/dryer combo there. We usually go to Wilmington once a year for personal business and this would be a place we would stay again. I will remember to bring some febreeze the next time as the non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes. The view from the balcony is starting to get […] blocked from the trees growing but it is still a nice view on a sunset, and the battleship is just across the river. If you are looking to go to Wilmington, this would be a place to go and check out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""Are those rooms for rent"?"
I love this place, it's clean, close to good eats and right in the heart of things. Most people ask us "are those rooms for rent"?...Genuine Expedia guest review
We recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. After reading some of the reviews here I didn't know what to expect. The suite we had was fantastic. Very well furnished with beautiful hardwood floors and also very clean. I would stay here again in a second. You can't beat the view from the balcony and also easy walking distance to the beautiful historic […] downtown. Also, we were given a modem when we checked in...it wasn't the fastest but it worked fine. This place is a winner! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great option for me and my family since we were all able to stay together in a condo. The place had a great view of the battleship and the river. There weren't that many pots/pans so we couldn't cook breakfast like we had planned. The furniture was a little worn and the fold out couch was not very comfortable. However, we found the place […] easier to stay in than a typical hotel room as it gave us more sitting area and a great balcony to hang out on. I would stay here again.

We stopped in Wilmington on our way to Savannah and loved the town as well as the hotel. Great view of the Cape Fear River.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All we expected and an added bonus"
Our room was great - 8th floor overlooking the river and awoke to network shooting of Revolution downtown. So we got to have coffee and watch some of it off the balcony and then walked down and saw some more of their other shots. Room was great and bed was so comfortable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
