Places to Eat in Wilmington

 Orienting Yourself:

The Sheraton is at 422 Delaware Avenue. Turn right out of the hotel, and Delaware morphs into 10th Street; three-five minutes walk in that direction, and 10th Street intersects with Market Street at Rodney Square. Go across the street from the hotel, and Washington St is on your left.


In addition to the hotel restaurant, there are several eating options within 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel. Downtown is generally well policed and safe; walking below 4th Street and in the area north of Market Street (to the right as you go down) is not recommended.
