WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A hotel offers discounted rates to residents seeking shelter from the cold. The Hilton Wilmington Riverside says they've had a lot of people renting rooms because their power was out at home.
"We're really not looking to make a ton of money or anything like that. We just wanted to help them out," Asst. General Manager Karen Morganti said.
Officials said a conference scheduled for this week was canceled because of the winter storm, and opened up rooms.
The Hilton Wilmington Riverside has extended a discounted rate for those without power. It's now $99 to rent a room Thursday night. For more information, call 910-763-5900.
