Lovely gardens and rooms in the heart of downtown
The hotel and staff were lovely. The gardens were very enjoyable. And the room was relaxing. A small refrigerator and microwave would have been a nice addition especially during the COVID-19 isolation period. Getting and storing food was a challenge at times.Other patrons dog barking was an unpleasant distraction some evenings.

If I could Arrive 15 out of 10 stars I would!
Where do I start? Arrive is beautiful. It is a gorgeous boutique type hotel. There are fire pits and a bar outside, along with corn hole and other outdoor games. The gardens are well taken care of. If you bring your fur babies, it is easy to walk them around the courtyard and around the town. The location is perfect. Lots of restaurants and cute stores around. The architecture of the buildings around is definitely a sight to see. The interior of the rooms is so comfortable, modern, beautiful, and well designed. The bed is amazing. It makes you not miss your bed from home at all (mind you, I love my bed). The TVs are all synced to Hulu, Netflix, and other apps. It is definitely an experience in itself being in the room. Some of the rooms can be a little loud if you stay in a corner unit near the stairs since people will get up early to exercise and or let their dogs out, but it isn’t unbearable. People like to take advantage of the social aspect and go mingle with other guests in the courtyard until around 11ish pm. I think it would be great even for a business trip. I stayed there with my husband and two black labs, but do travel for work quite a bit. I’d definitely stay there again. Check out is super easy, you can leave the key in the room and simply leave. Check in is also quite easy, to we arrived late at night and there was someone there to receive us and give us the keys to the room. There are no fees for bringing your dogs. The room has natural light in the AM. 10/10.

Very good 8.0
Super cute, great location
Service was great. My boyfriend ordered flowers and they had them delivered to our room. Hotel is super cute, great location. Lots of fire pits and chairs to sit and hang out in the courtyard. Only comlpaint is we were on the bottom floor and it was extremely noisy above us. We could hear every step they took. It honestly sounded like they were moving furniture around. If you're a light sleeper, you will definitely not sleep well on the bottom floor.

Super cute, great location, resort vibe!
We loved our stay at ARRIVE. It almost felt like a resort. The staff was friendly. Our room was super cute, the bed was comfortable, and just outside our room was a lovely courtyard with lots of seating and outdoor fire places and fire pits. There is also a bar in the courtyard associated with the hotel's restaurant (which we also enjoyed). The bar was expensive, but a nice treat. We enjoyed a cocktail from the bar by the fire place had a great meal at the restaurant and then changed into more comfortable clothes to continue to enjoy the courtyard space since it was right next to our room. It is also a great location that was walkable to great coffee, restaurants, etc. We'll absolutely come back. The negative thing we could mention was the noise - our room was on the first floor and close to the road so we could hear some noise from the room above us and occasionally people talking outside in the courtyard space. In general this wasn't enough noise to keep us from sleeping so it wasn't a huge deal, but it was noticeable.

A wonderful surprise, in the hotel and downtown Wilmington. ARRIVE is new, stylish, and thoughtful spaces walkable to river and pubs and shops. A great stay!

Wonderfully Relaxing
We went as a quick couples getaway for the night. I had never heard of this place before but the ratings and pictures made me decide to give it a try as well as the fact they don’t charge a fee for bringing your dog (under 51lbs) which is very rare! It was beautiful!!! The rooms, the landscaping, the neighborhood, everything about the place was lovely and very well kept. Perfect for a couples weekend retreat. And you’re in the middle of everything downtown without being on Front Street with all the noise ALL NIGHT LONG!! We will be staying again and would highly recommend.
