The Safest Stay

That is our commitment to you. Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, The Hive is the safest and most comfortable accommodations you’ll find in Wilmington, or anywhere really.

Boutique is Better

With only 14 private entrance suites and no front desk, lobby or elevator there are fewer encounters with other guests and staff members and each suite features a full kitchen, spa-like bathroom and separate lounging and sleeping spaces.

Socially Distant Service

We use technology like email and text messaging to communicate check-in instructions and other helpful information. Our keyless locks allow guests 24/7 access to their suite, but we’re also only a chat message away like a virtual concierge.

Clean, Of Course

Guests can rest easy knowing that our small and skilled housekeeping team sanitizes all common area surfaces including stair railings and door knobs multiple times a day and all suites are fogged with disinfectant between guests.
