My wife and I got married in Wilmington and had our reception next to the Stemmerman's at 128 South. We worked with our guests to book all six suites at the Stemmerman's and never regretted it for a second!
Regarding the rooms and service: Mr. Michael is the ideal host: Great!!! He met all the guests at the door and gave everyone a tour of the Inn and its facilities. He is a "one man show," as he said, so guests can't quite expect a 24/7 presence at the desk downstairs but he does his best! On that note, guests should keep their keys on them at all times, in case someone is not there to unlock the doors for you (thankfully we never had this problem). The rooms are clean and spacious. Many had the beds on a second level. Free coffee, too. Yum. Each room comes with a complimentary parking space which is across the street. Mr. Michael was very attentive. For example, when the clocks changed (we "fall" back one hour) he put a note on everyone's door reminding them of this. I think the only negative characteristic anyone mentioned was the spotty Wifi in some of the rooms.
Regarding the Inn in conjunction with a wedding: VERY recommended! Mr. Michael regularly works closely with the staff of 128 South. He was extraordinarily helpful in assisting me in loading and unloading the decorations we brought for the reception next door and even allowed us to store a bunch of them in the small Stemmerman's office. Finally, if you book the whole Inn there is a small discount for each room.
Thanks, Mr. Michael! Hopefully we can stay with you on a less crazy weekend!
