Wilmington, Delaware: 17th-Century Colony with Famed American-Art Museum

Wilmington was first founded as a Swedish colony in 1638; naturally, it has no shortage of historical sites. A highlight among them is Fort Christina Park. Though the real ancient fort no longer stands, you can sail the Delaware River aboard a re-creation of the 139-foot Kalmar Nyckel, the settlers’ ship that brought numerous Swedes to the area. This full-size vessel features ornate carvings, seven working cannons, and masts that rise up to 10 stories into the sky. The ship docks near the Wilmington Riverfront, which follows the Christina River. A stroll through this green thoroughfare takes you past myriad cultural institutions, waterfront cafés, and art-deco architecture.

But the city’s most popular cultural center lies outside of downtown. The Delaware Art Museum is home to a vast collection of American art, including many by Edward Hopper, John Sloan, and Howard Pyle. Pyle is also credited with having started the Brandywine School at the end of the 19th century, a local organization that helped to usher in the golden age of American illustration.

Great location. Love the proximity to everything. Hotel room is clean and everything worked as they should. We love the warm cookies. The parking is covered and physically linked to the hotel.

The area was kinda sketchy to start with hang arounds on the corners. Our 1st rm the bed was filthy the smoke detector had a bag over it and hair was in the sink. The 2nd rm was missing a smoke detector the outlet cover was cracked & partially missing, no bulb in the lamp, no hot water,the perimeter of the room and behind the head boards needs vacuuming. Trash piles & scuffed paint in halls & loud

This hotel is really a big disappointment, I expected to get value for my money but unfortunately it was a waste! “First impression they say last forever” hotel management need to do more works maintain this place. Huge trash at the entrance, no sanitizer by elevator in/out, carpet/sheets/furniture are dirty. And worst still, smell of weeds all over room which makes it undesirable for our kids
