If you are looking for a spacious hotel near Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art you need to be looking at the Sheraton Suites Wilmington Downtown. My husband and I attended an event at the Brandywine and we knew we needed a hotel to stay at after the event. After looking at several reviews we settled on the Sheraton Suites Wilmington, Downtown. We discovered for the price of a single hotel room in other hotels, we could have an entire suite. And trust me, this suite is sweet!
In room mini wet bar
This two room suite has a wet bar at the entrance to the room. Larger than average mini fridge, coffee maker with Starbucks coffee, a microwave and a sink greet you when you walk in. Yes, those are our take out boxes from The Basil Bar & Grill. I had a tomato and fresh mozzarella salad and my husband had a chef salad. We were SO hungry after traveling and it was so nice to have delicious, fresh food to enjoy as we got ready for the party we were attending.
A spacious sitting area
The suite is a full 500 square feet! This place is about 1/4 of my entire house! It had a spacious living or sitting area. The sofa is a pull out queen bed and if we had the kids with us, they would be sleeping on it. But we were kid free and loving it!
Tucked in the corner of this photo is a large desk that is perfect for those who have work to get done while traveling. Wifi was included and it was pretty fast for what I needed to accomplish.
I did note that there was not a coffee table in our room. I am not sure if this was on purpose or if it was broken, but it would have been nice to have a coffee table to have a place to eat our salads. It wasn’t the end of the world, just an observation.

A little extra privacy
There are folding louvered doors that separate the living area from the bedroom. It definitely gave it a feel privacy and a larger suite with the doors. Perfect for creating separate bedrooms when traveling with kids.
Do you like a King Size Bed?
We sleep on a queen sized bed at home so when the Sheraton Suites Wilmington Delaware has a king size bed, it makes me feel luxurious and pampered. And the pillows! These pillows are amazing!!!
And there is a duvet on the bed. I LOVE a duvet. Sleeping under a duvet is something I learned to appreciate when I traveled through Europe in college.
Basil Bar & Grill
On site is the Basil Bar & Grill. This restaurant has a bistro-style atmosphere, serving traditional, American cuisine. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn’t sit and enjoy a meal at the restaurant. Instead we did take out and enjoyed a few salads in our room. My husband MAY have had a Jack and Coke while he waited…..and he MAY have said it hit the spot.
Don’t worry if you have to scoot out the door in a hurry! They have take out for you!
As a person who travels a lot for business it is so nice to have a business center on site. Nice chairs, printers to print the things you forgot and places to charge all the things.
How secure is the hotel?
I love when I am in a hotel and you know that in order to go to a floor you have to have a key card. I feel a bit more secure knowing that the hotel is looking out for the security and safety of their guests. Just don’t keep your room key card next to your cell phone. It will deactivate. Ask me how I know.
What if I forget something?
In the lobby they have a mini store with a couple of the essentials you may have forgotten. I do my best to remember to pack all the essentials but this trip I was out of Ibuprofen. I was thankful I didn’t have to leave the hotel to find what I needed.
Refreshing water for free
In the lobby the Sheraton Suites offers fruited water. As soon as I arrive at a hotel from traveling I am parched! It is a lovely touch of hospitality to have some fresh fruit water waiting for guests. Well done Sheraton!
What about Parking?
Parking is on site, in a garage and is $12 a night. It is self parking and know that if you have a vehicle over 6 foot you will need to contact the hotel as to where you can park your vehicle. I don’t think this hotel could have accommodated the lifted Jeep we ran around in back in college. The low riders…. yes. They have got you covered.
More that I didn’t experience.
There are only so many minutes in a day and especially when you have an event to attend we couldn’t expereince all that the Sheraton Suites has to offer.
Here is what we missed:
- 24 Hour Fitness Center ~ I don’t work out enough but if I did there is an onsite fitness center at the Sheraton Suites. Located on the second floor, access the fitness center with your key card.
- Pet Friendly ~ We don’t have four legged friends in our home but I have plenty of friends who love to travel with their furry kids. The Sheraton Suites Wilmington Downtown is a pet friendly hotel. Take advantage of complimentary amenities like the Sheraton Signature Dog Bed, food and water bowls with a floor mat, and a welcome kit with information and supplies such as local pet information, pet napping door hanger, and more items that are useful when traveling with a canine companion. This might be reason enough for me to borrow a fuzzy face and take a trip!
- Indoor Pool ~ I need to remember to schedule in more pool time when I travel. It is a wonderful amenity and I need to take advantage of it! Bonus that the Sheraton Suites offer room service for delivery to the pool area!! Locker rooms and showers are also available. The pool is located on the second floor and is only accessible with a guest key providing a safe and comfortable environment.
