A landmark on Wilmington’s riverfront for nearly 50 years, Hotel Ballast is a premier, full-service hotel in the heart of downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. The hotel, affiliated with Hilton’s new Tapestry Collection of boutique hotels, offers guests a refreshing blend of historic charm, modern comfort, and Southern hospitality along the famous Wilmington Riverwalk and within steps of shopping, dining, nightlife, and sightseeing.

Boasting 272 well-appointed guest rooms and 20,000 square feet of meeting space, Hotel Ballast is the largest convention hotel in Eastern North Carolina and benefits from a rapidly growing destination market for business and leisure travelers alike. In 2018, Hotel Ballast completed a $10.0 million renovation effort that includes a total refresh of all areas of the property, including upgrades to all 272 of the hotel’s guestrooms, the addition of Board & Barrel as the hotel’s signature restaurant, as well as other improvements to the lobby, pool area, meeting space, and other public areas. Sotherly Hotels acquired the hotel, formerly known as the Hilton Wilmington Riverside, during its initial public offering in 2004 and previously completed a renovation effort in 2008.
