Where to Stay

If you are visiting Wilmington for a performance at the Wilson Center, we hope you’ll have the opportunity to spend a few days with us.  From quaint inns to seaside resorts to riverside hotels, the Wilmington area has lots of options for those looking to stay in the Port City.

Both Wilmington Downtown, Inc.  and the Wilmington and Beaches Convention and Visitors Bureau are good resources to help you choose where to stay. We also have some local recommendations, convenient to downtown and the Wilson Center:


The Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront

Embassy Suites

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront is an all-suite hotel along the Cape Fear Riverwalk. Attend events at the Wilmington Convention Center – directly connected to the hotel – and be steps from top restaurants, shops and activities in historic downtown Wilmington. The USS North Carolina battleship is moored by the hotel, and boat tours along the Cape Fear River await, and the best of Broadway, music, comedy and dance is just a short walk away at the Wilson Center.

Unwind in a spacious suite with cozy seating, flat-screen TVs, dining area, work desk, complimentary WiFi for Hilton Honors members, and a wet bar with fridge and microwave.

Start the day right with free made-to-order breakfast, then join us later for our complimentary Evening Reception* on our 2nd floor landing overlooking the Port City Marina. Head to our Rooftop Bar, Cloud 9, to enjoy panoramic river views and eclectic menus, or enjoy American Cuisine with locally sourced ingredients along the riverfront at Steam Restaurant & Bar.

Our Wilmington, NC hotel has all you need to work, relax and stay connected including a business center, convenience shop, fitness center and indoor pool. Plan board meetings, conferences and wedding receptions for up to 750 guests with your choice of stylish event spaces across the hotel and Wilmington Convention Center. Our event planners are happy to assist with all the details.
