Stayed at the Hotel du Pont recently for a family wedding. The hotel is beautiful and elegant. The rooms are suites, with a large sitting area and wonderful bathroom. Everything was clean and sparkling. We stayed in a suite with a king bed that was super comfortable. Several reasons for rating this as 4 and not 5 stars: no coffee... More

Great Service. Wonderful Rooms. Classic Hotel. Stayed here on a business trip and it was awesome. The staff graciously tended to every need I had. Clean rooms and good beds. Only thing that I missed was no coffee in the room.

Stayed at the Hotel du Pont this weekend for a wedding. I'm not very familiar with the area - but didn't have very high expectations driving up through the city. I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel - the lobby was grand and ornate. We had a room with two double beds which was HUGE (and clean) - and full... More

I booked a last minute Downton Abbey package for the fifth of July, and am happy I did. I appreciated the convenience of having tickets to the exhibit at nearby Winterthur available from an efficient and friendly Noemi at check in. Our spacious and extremely comfortable room could certainly use a bit of an update ( there was a rather... More

I was born and raised in north Wilmington. Our family had many wonderful events at the Hotel. Our room was elegant. The hotel still offers old world charm. We had drinks at the Hotel Bar and enjoyed the drinks. Our breakfast at the Green Room was delicious. We love this hotel.

I used to love the Hotel du Pont. I had my bat mitzvah there. I got married there. My parents were both longtime DuPont employees. The Hotel held a special place in my heart. And then I checked in this May, looking forward to celebrating my sister’s wedding, and realized that it had become a very different place. The list... More

This hotel with its elegance and friendliness felt like old world charm. The nicest are common spaces - lobby, foyer,restaurant. The hotel rooms are less impressive but it is an oldie-goldie. You do not come here to use internet or to use ultramodern facilities but you can expect the old world charm and to create nostalgic memories. Good base for... More

Had the pleasure of staying at Hotel du Pont while attending a friend's wedding at the Winterthur Estate. What a pleasant site at the end of a raggedy street. From the moment we arrived the staff was gracious and accommodating. The rooms were will let lit and spacious with the most luxurious linens. I couldn't get out of the bed... More
