Overall, I was pleased with this choice as it was just close enough to central Wilmington to be convenient but not right in the center (eliminating noisiness). I also loved the room amenities including a Kuerig coffee maker (not the most eco friendly option due to single-use pods, but it makes a reliable cup of coffee), the reusable water bottles and filtered water, and the bathroom products are all a plus for this hotel. The room is very cute, comfortable and clean, though we like to watch tv in bed and the tv in our room is located in the living room. I also would have preferred more accessible live tv programming rather than Roku (for the less tech savvy, this is one of a few features that might be off-putting). The room was quiet overall and I appreciate the fact that there is a strict noise policy. That said, there was a recurring humming or buzzing sound that caused some temporary noise. Luckily, it went away by the time we were ready to sleep. I am not sure if it was the sound of fans in other rooms or some other mechanical feature in or outside of the building. Also, I did not see any elevator on the property. It was ok to lug our bags up the flights of stairs, but I can't imagine everyone (including the disabled) would be ok with this. We opted to park in the lot across the street, and the lot is gravel (not paved) which is a little tough to use with roller luggage. In spite of minor issues like these, I would recommend the hotel and would stay again.

The Hive is an incredible boutique hotel, that is decorated beyond, incredible details and comfort. By far, one of the best showers ever. My only regret, I only was only able to stay one night.

Our room at The Hive was on the third floor. It was very clean and smelled amazing. The bathroom was beautiful and impeccable. During our stay we did encounter a pretty heavy downpour. Unfortunately, some of the water leaked through the door and into the main entrance of the room. Luckily, we were in the room when this happened, and we were able to place towels down. We contacted the property management and they were ready to assist us with anything we may have needed. Fortunately, as the rain stopped, so did the leak. No damage was done, and we’re hoping that by letting the management know of the problem, they’ll be fixing it in the near future. Would highly recommend a one night to an extended stay at the hive in Wilmington, North Carolina.
