My husband and I attended a masquerade ball given by Gentlemen of Distinction of Wilmington, De. The hotel itself was clean, very nice and classy. The ballroom was tastefully decorated. The food was scrumptious and bar had great cocktails. If you are looking for a nice place to have an affair check out this establishment.

My daughter checked in to this hotel but discovered that her car had been burglarized within minutes. She experienced difficulty in locking her room door too. frightened, she left the hotel immediately to go elsewhere. I called Choice 3 times to report the situation but was shuttled around by their "service" reps, put on hold indefinitely, and failed to get...

All the good ingredients of "hospitality" was displayed by the staff at Clarion Hotel - The Belle. It was such a pleasure after hours of car traveling to be greeted and checked in with no problems. Bobby was at the Front Desk and exhibited all the positive professionalism to be acknowledged. Even my brief stop in the Gift Shop was...

Decent value for the money. We needed a stop on the way to Long Island. Convenient location right near the Delaware Memorial Bridge, decent room, very friendly staff. They need to spend money on maintenance (one lamp was broken, no stopper in sink). Not a big deal, but with a bit of love this place could get better reviews. Breakfast...

During check-in, I had expected to have my name reserved for a double bed room. Instead, i was charged for a King Bed room made to fit 4 people... The front desk claimed he didn't know what happened to my reservation but that's all they had available. Then after i was complete with signing paper work, the employee "Bobby "...

For 100 bucks, and the ratings I saw, I expected more. The gate to the pool was broken. My door knob to my room was broken. Could not slide the shower door. All the doors needed paint. The scrambled eggs were weird. Coffee cups too small. The best part was the waitstaff and hostess in the breakfast dining room because...

Please allow me to apologize that your reserved room was not ready upon your arrival. We do have a 24 hour cancellation policy and we do have a 3pm check-in time, which can generate a small fee, should we have a room ready and you wish to check in earlier than that, as it creates additional time in the room....

The room was spacious and clean. Quiet. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up. The best part was the restaurant and and helpful friendly staff. The only negative was the ice machine on the 2nd floor was out of service. No big deal, the 1st floor machine worked.

the hotel itself isn't bad, housekeeping needs some work. Only made up one bed and did not empty the trash but yet felt the need to take change that I had left on the dresser.

This is a very bad and outdated hotel. I am glad it was only one night. Biggest problem was the bathroom. It needs some good cleaning to remove the nasty smell. The furniture was old and dated. Save your money in go anywhere else!
