We were in Wilmington to tour the Brandywine Valley and learn the history of DuPont. The Hotel DuPont was the place to stay. We arrived on Thursday and were promptly checked in to a nice room on the 12th floor. I asked for a coffee maker, safe, and fridge. The safe and fridge were no problem but a coffee maker... More

The main hotel dining room, the Green Room, is tops. Wonderful for special occasions for locals, as well as for visiting business people. The guest rooms are a bit small, but both guest rooms and public areas have the feel of European luxury. Gold Ballroom - spectacular for a large special occasion, plus there a several medium and small conference... More

Public spaces in the DuPont Hotel remind me of Medici Renaissance splendor. The Sunday buffet is legendary and I was privileged to be guest at special family event on 30 March, 2014. I had to try everything and loved it all Whether you are vegetarian or carnivore you will find a spledid choice, well -prepared, beautifully presented. Worth a special... More

Yesterday 3 friends and I had lunch in the Green Room. When we arrived we were greeted with, "How are youse girls?" All of us are 65 or older and did not appreciate this. We found the food to be ordinary and the prices high for what we received. A filet sandwich, with a small amount of meat, some blue... More

I found the Hotel Du Pont to be a charming, old world style hotel. The rooms were comfortable with a sitting area separate from the bedroom. The food was excellent and the Dupont Theater is right down stairs where I saw the excellent dance show Ballroom with a Twist. I can't say much about the neighborhood because my trip was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for an overnight getaway 3-29-14. Our King Room had a comfy bed, large bathroom with bathtub, separate shower and vanity area, full size desk and lovely living room area with a comfortable sofa and chairs. The building opened in 1913 and still has an elegant, turn of the 20th century charm, reminiscent of the Titanic.... More

Ive had to stay at Du Pont several times because of legal proceedings in Del Court - nearby. While this hotel may be the best in Wilmington, it is far inferior to other similar priced hotels in metropolitan areas. While I have had several average to good stays in the past year, one stands out as one of the worst... More

We sincerely apologize that you were checked into a guestroom that was clearly intended to be taken out of service and for that, we are very sorry. After review of the situation, we have confirmed the correct process was in place but a human error was made and we failed to enter the housekeeping issues in the computer before you... More

We cannot be complimentary enough of the Hotel du Pont. We stayed over New Year's on a package that included the room, parking, the New Year's party, and breakfast. We added several days to the stay and loved every minute. The room was good size with a large bathroom and separate sitting area with a lighted makeup mirror. The public... More

I am not sure this would live up to 5 star hotels in major cities like NYC, Chicago, or SF, but it is head and shoulders above everything else in the area. I think the old-time elegance is a bit lost on me, spoiled by ultra modern 4/5 star resorts elsewhere, but it is very classy and the staff match... More
