One of the three buildings that make up this interesting, independent hotel dates to 1904; another was a convent in the 1950s, and by the time Wilmington was becoming known as Hollywood East, the third building was designed specifically for the producers and stars of movies being made in the Wilmington area.
Each room is a unique design and dÃ©cor with lots of local history and colorful insight to the lives of those who have passed through here in the past century. There’s nothing cookie-cutter about this place with its many gazebos, courtyards, and nautical themes, along with beautiful landscaping in the summer months.
All rooms are suites and include a small refrigerator and microwave. However, other than coffee and some complimentary fruit, there is no breakfast or meal service. The good news is that many of Wilmington’s fun restaurants are within easy walking distance. Parking is free.
