I will be attending a conference at the Chase center in August. Can anyone recommend a hotel? My preference is Hilton or Holiday Inn properties.

I posted this in Hometown also, but things seem pretty dead over there.

Thanks

The Christiana Hilton is good.

http://www.hiltonchristiana.com/

Nothing in DE is farther than a ten minute drive, so any hotel is within reasonable distance (to anyone not from Delaware). From that hotel, it's jump on 95 and go North 2 exits, no problems.

You don't want to stay in actual downtown Wilmington.


If you stay at that Hilton, go across the highway and eat at Jose's Border Café (big "EAT" sign). Try the gumbo.

Give Joe Biden a call, he lives somewhere by.

there's a hotel attached to the Chase center. I think its the Westin. They just built it a year or so ago.

Very serious.

I've had all the best gumbos, from all over NO, greater LA, MS, even some decent ones in AL and FL.

Jose's is excellent. Not the absolute best by any means, but it's better than any of the "tourist" spots in NO (none of which are bad).

I'd also recommend Booth's Corner, PA - their farmer's market has a stall called Cajun Kate's. Also excellent gumbo.

No tomatoes, correct?


It's funny where you can find good food out of place.

When I was in Los Angeles, my driver told me he spent a few years in NOLA. He was telling me that at the farmers market, there is outfit that makes beignets that are just as good as Cafe Du Monde.

You just never know where you can find good food.
