This hotel, like Wilmington has seen better days. Not only Has the hotel seen better days but so has the staff. The people behind the front desk look tired and annoyed to be working there. We practically had to beg for a map of the area. Wilmington itself is a big nothing and I certainly would not suggest going there... More

Came for a wedding and had a good nights sleep. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were not... Very nice size rooms and very clean. Parking is $22.00 and I hate paying for parking. Did not have much choice because everyone else in our family was staying here.

The hotel rooms are very nice. They are quite and spacious. The one thing that I did not like was the valet parking. There is not an overnight garage that close to the hotel (especially when carrying a wedding dress). We felt rushed every time we drove up to the hotel. We were also told to move our car out...

It’s the Hotel DuPont, what else could you ask for? Every small city seems to have one; that grand old hotel that radiates luxury. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel and compared to any of the others in Wilmington, the upgrade is worth every dime. The architecture is beautiful, the staff is polite and the rooms are...

I have grown up in Wilmington, Delaware and the Hotel DuPont is somewhere I have always wanted to stay. I only wish I had done it sooner! Absolutely beautiful room with amazing service! At first we were afraid it might be noisy since the room was located right by the elevators...we didn't hear a sound! Not even when in the... More

The hotel has the feel of the days gone by - in a good way. The rooms are very stately. They have tall ceilings and old time charm. I loved the bathtub caddy so much I found it online at Pottery Barn and bought one.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in: rooms are large, staff attentive, and it's right downtown within a stone's through of the area's attractions (which are many). The room we had was a suite with plentiful and comfortable seating. It was also one of the quiestest rooms I've ever had. Strong recommended.

This hotel is wonderful. I stayed here for business and I was very impressed by the size of the room (practically a suite) and great bathroom with a whirlpool tub. There is also a really good coffee shop on the first floor. I would gladly stay there again.
