Here’s What They Say About Us…


“Once a building dedicated to acts of charity, Wilmington’s riverfront time capsule is now a headquarters for hospitality.”

Our State Magazine (“21 Perfect Places to Stay” issue)


“For distinctive lodging downtown, we love the Front Street Inn.”

Southern Living


“The Front Street Inn features understated decor with arched windows, thick brick walls, 14 foot ceilings and Maple floors. American art gathered from galleries, fairs, auctions and attics peppers the Inn, giving it a bohemian flavor.”
