AWFUL! Spend your time and money somewhere else!

Was told that the check in hours were posted online incorrectly and to come back at check in; which was in 15 minutes. Left to get dinner and come back, an hour after their "correct check in time" we were told that we still couldn't check in because they were waiting on linens but would call us when our room was ready. Left again, never received a call, but our room was finally ready when we went back to check an hour and a half later. So finally after 3 1/2hrs of trying to entertain 2 small children in a run down town in 95 degree weather, we got a room. The room was supposed to "have a view of the river" but instead was a giant tree blocking our entire window.

You're paying for the view.

The good: Beautiful view of dock with and yachts. Room fairly clean. Restaurant had good food. The bad: Check in time is 4pm. TV quit working. They offered to change my room at 9pm. I told them no and they gave me a certificate for a free breakfast. Bathroom: Bathroom is small. Paint peeling in bath tub. Mildew around top edge of tub. Floor tiles loose in bathroom.

New Bern, NC

I bought this a week and a half before my departure and feel that it was very costly since I waited too long, The hotel was noisy from 2am - 4:30 am a lot of people running through the halls partying.

No Complaints

I travel a lot and know instantly whether a place is going to please me.  I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who visits New Bern.  The parking is easy and free, the lobby is large and you will be welcomed with warm cookies.  Our room was comfy, clean and well maintained during our 5 night visit.  The food (and wine list) at Christophe's was very good including the breakfast buffet. Prices were reasonable and the wait staff was extremely accommodating, letting us dine outside even when they were not set up to provide service.  The live music at the end of the week is wonderful.  We were so surprised and pleased to arrive rather late and be able to sit on the deck over the water, enjoy bar service and listen to a jazz singer.  I also really enjoyed the Hilton Honors reception where they provided drink tickets and free bar food to members.  I've never experienced that and it was great. The location is awesome to. Fab views of sunsets over the water every night.

This was the best bed I have every slept in!

We came into town to help my father clean up after the hurricane and it was great to have such a sound sleep before we had to wade through the destruction at his house. Also, we enjoyed sitting out at the outside bar listening to music. The beer was actually reasonable and cold!!

Hilton lives up to its reputation

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The Hilton New Bern Riverfront is nestled in a crook of Trent River's harbor, offering a picturesque panorama of the vast waterway. The classy architectural design of the hotel only adds to the southern charm of downtown New Bern, and reminded me that I wasn't in Kansas anymore. The service provided by the Hilton staff would make anyone feel like a dignitary as they cater to every wanting. A value for the money, which will be sure to yield dividends in memories.

Beautiful hotel, friendly people

The staff at the hotel were all very gracious. The location is fabulous; right on the water, right in town and easy to walk to many interesting stores, restaurants, parks, and historic attractions. We were really impressed with the hotel and with the city. The room was comfortable, good bed, nice and clean. Parking is free and plentiful. Room service was actually very reasonable so we had a nice breakfast in bed. The hotel just felt comfy and casual. Despite being in town and on the water is was very quiet.
