Sophisticated Hotel with Old-World Charm

Swans glide along a pond on the country estate of Hilton Christiana. The scene is just part of the hotel’s Old-World mystique: the building itself is a wide, red-brick manor, and in the lobby there are large crystal chandeliers set above a marble floor. This is architecture typical of the Brandywine Valley, which is often called “Chateau Country”—many 18th- and 19th-century mansions line its quaint villages, set amid lovely rolling hills and rivers.

There are two upscale onsite restaurants onsite at the Hilton. At the Brasserie Grille, the chef crafts artisan meat and seafood plates, such as the pan-seared Chesapeake lump crab cakes or a cut of aged, certified-Angus beef broiled at 1,600 degrees. Sporting events play on the big screen in the refined atmosphere of the Hunt Club Lounge, where patrons can kick back and build an extra room key out of cocktail straws or nosh on light cuisine such as the signature she-crab bisque. Hilton Christiana also offers romantic room-service meals.

Standard rooms feature blond maple furniture and a color palette of cream, green, rust, and gold. At the center of each room are exclusive Suite Dreams mattresses topped with down-filled comforters, and oversize botanical artwork hangs on the cream-colored walls.

Newark, Delaware: Quaint City Near Historical Mansions and Art Museums

The small city of Newark is nestled halfway between Baltimore and Philadelphia in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, its scenery marked by rolling hills and meandering rivers. Historical mansions and sprawling estates dot the picturesque landscape, including the world-famous Longwood Gardens located 20 miles north of the hotel. Twenty outdoor gardens and a 130-foot water fountain are highlights of the more than 1,000 acres, which once served as the former private estate of Delaware tycoon Pierre S. du Pont. The site also serves as a base for seasonal events such as Holiday Fountain Shows, Christmas Choir concerts, and job fairs for reindeer.

Very nice place; great breakfast; clean room
Stacy C. · August 18, 2013
Because we were celebrating my wife's 60th birthday, they upgraded our room and had a complimentary gift bag for her. It was a wonderful end to our vacation get-away.
