Embassy Suites by Hilton officially opened the 186-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront. The hotel is owned and operated by Harmony Hospitality.

Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront offers a location connected to the Wilmington Convention Center and is steps away from restaurants, shops and activities in historic downtown Wilmington. The USS North Carolina battleship is moored across from the hotel, and boat tours along the Cape Fear River await, along with antebellum mansions and Civil War Sites nearby to discover.

Offering two-room suites, the property provides a free cooked-to-order breakfast, free Wi-Fi for Hilton Honors guests and a complimentary evening reception with drinks and snacks every night. The property also has more than 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
