Wow. What a lovely, lovely hotel. It is historic and just beautiful. We were lucky to be upgraded to the bridal suite. The suite was huge but so comfortable. The shower was perfect. The tub was so deep and so long. I love long baths. This was the best ever. It has a tray for your book. The towels were... More

We've used the Hotel twice, once in 2005 and now in September 2014 for wedding. In both cases, we had a perfect wedding reception. The venue is perfect because the hotel is easily assessable and close to I95 with both valet and self-parking. The hotel rooms are like new, the bathrooms are great, There is a bar for activities both... More

The two of us enjoyed a great dinner earlier this evening. Food was incredible and our service was commendable. The bartender was the best as he made a perfect Dirty Martini and Cosmo. We rarely have more than one cocktail upon an outing but they were so on spot, we enjoyed two each. Your hostess was on mark, and took... More

A historic hotel located in the not-so-pretty downtown Wilmington. The room is big with big marble bathroom, big tub and shower stall that drained slowly. It has all the amenities of a top-end hotel. It's the only good hotel in town, by default. The restaurant is more than acceptable and it's the only restaurant choice within walking distance from the... More

This is an old and famous hotel that has tried to upgrade and I think very successfully. The rooms are comfortable and have the flat screen tv that is a must in current accommodations. Our room also had a stall show plus bath tub. Good and friendly service.

Stayed at the Hotel du Pont for a wedding (where the wedding also took place). Everything was absolutely perfect in every way. This hotel is ranked #3 on TripAdvisor. How is it not #1? Loved the wonderfully appointed (and very spacious) room. Bathroom was incredible. Too bad I had no time to use the incredibly inviting soaking tub. I have... More

Stayed one night for business and was within walking distance of the office and club for dinner. Very convenient. Valet parking was very easy and the service was excellent from Patrick. Dropped the car and my bag very quickly and walked to work. Returned at dinner time and Dayna at the front desk checked me in very quickly and retrieved... More

This was by far the best Hotel I have stayed at. The Front desk people were pleasant and helpful. The architecture and furniture was elegant as was the Green Room for the afternoon tea. The suite was Huge and very comfortable. I was only there 1 night but I would take advantage of the Relaxing Bath that is offered if... More

My husband and I stayed here one night as part of our anniversary celebration. The room was lovely and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The King bed, upholstered sofa, two chairs, desk, large screen tv, lighted closets, huge bathroom, fluffy towels, and glassware were all high quality. It was such a nice room to relax and soak...

Hotel du Pont, centrally located in downtown Wilmington, is a walk through the past. The Green Room furnishings alone catapult you into a bygone era of comfort and eye pleasing ornateness. Their breakfast was outstanding. And, how many hotels have you visited where the Concierge offers your choice of morning papers to read. Comfortable, affordable suites, valet parking, a coffee...
