The resident swans delight kids at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana, especially when they march to dinner each evening. The hotel has an elegance few in the area can match. Resembling an English country house, the four-story Hilton Wilmington/Christiana sits beside a lake where the swans gently glide. The well-tended grounds have graceful touches like a shady gazebo. In the courtyard is a sunny pool where the waitstaff will serve you drinks and finger food. There's also a fitness room with free weights and cardio equipment. The extra-thick beds in the 266 handsomely appointed rooms are covered with high-end linens and down comforters (don't tell the swans). Enjoy a cup of coffee in your room as you peruse the morning paper that's delivered to your door. High-tech touches include 37-inch flat-panel TVs, docks for your MP3 players and wireless internet connections (fee). Bathrooms are stocked with spa-quality soaps and conditioners. There are a restaurant and lounge on the premises, and other options within easy driving distance. Parking is free. Just off I-95, the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana manages to be in a quiet location yet very close to Newark and Wilmington. Christiana Mall (for tax-free shopping) is two miles south, and Delaware Park (racetrack, casino, golf) is two miles north. Delaware Stadium and the University of Delaware are seven miles southwest. The corporate offices for DuPont, JPMorgan Chase, and other companies are within easy driving distance. Newark's Amtrak station is eight miles west, and Philadelphia International Airport is 28 miles northeast. The luxurious accommodations and professional service win high marks for the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana. The rooms decorated with soothing colors and fine furnishings will have you feeling pampered before you even try the pool and hot tub.
