This was our 2nd staycation at the Hive and everything was just as unique, convenient, and comfortable as our 1st stay! Tucked away in downtown Wilmington, this boutique hotel is truly a hidden gem. My Honey and I plan on staying in all the individually personalized rooms that the Hive has to offer. This place has helped to make memories for us that are priceless! The Hive doesn't disappoint!

Great place
Really comfortable place with all amenities needed. Provided with a kettle minutes after asking whether that was possible. It was so nice to have our own space for a few days after spending 2 weeks in hotels on a touring holiday. Agree with previous reviews that you can hear people moving above but with the AC on it was not too much of a nuisance
