WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Wilmington Downtown Inc cut the ribbon on a brand new boutique hotel downtown Tuesday.

The Hive boasts 14 apartment- style suites featuring luxury linens, original art and furniture, full size kitchens and complimentary in-suite snacks.

Its located off 2nd Street and welcomes tourists, business travelers or group rentals for wedding parties or extended stays.

“It’s vibrant. The culture, the art, the Wilson Center. The Riverwalk, the convention center, you’ve got the future park. Just the growth along the river. I think people are more attracted to the denser, more urban areas. Wilmington’s got great people, a great climate, a great environment, and it’s just been a wonderful place to raise a family and start a new business,” said co-owner Robert Rosenberg.

The first six suites were open to guests in June 2019; the remaining eight were completed in November 2019 following Hurricane Florence damage repair.

The hotel is locally owned and operated and notes its pet friendly, too.
