    ARRIVE Willmington during our late November stay

    We really liked our stay at ARRIVE Willmington. The special highlights for us were welcoming stuff who helped with various questions via text even prior to our arrival, exceptional cleanliness in the room, absolutely beautiful and literally warm outdoors where we enjoyed the fireplace during unusually chilly evenings. Thank you!

  • 6.0.Good

    I liked the outdoor areas. Walking distance from downtown and plenty of places to eat, drink, and shop. Staff was great. Room was very clean. Old building and room had no appliances. TV did not work. Restaurant was closed per COVID nothing they can do about that. For the price, though, not worth it in my opinion.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Indeed a "boutique" hotel, great bathroom with dual shower: overhead and hand held, few hotels have it. The cleanliness, now even more important in the middle of pandemic was exemplary: towels separately wrapped. There were complementary water bottles, the outdoor fireplaces and very reasonable prices.

    Why does the bathroom echo? Doesn't offer a lot of privacy. Bed was comfy.
