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.

We used to live in the area so never needed to use a hotel. Now that we have moved away and came back to visit, we decided it was time to try it. Lived it. We arrived late, but just in time to have a half hour in their lovely bar for drinks, which was very enjoyable. When we got... More

I stayed two nights for a wedding and have nothing but great things to say about Hotel du Pont. On the list of historic hotels in America, today you can still enjoy the grandness of the hotel, view paintings by Wyeth, and receive world class service. The room was spacious, quiet and the bed comfy. Nightly turndown service is offered... More

Hotel Du Pont in Wilmington, Delaware resembles the Du Pont legacy of splendid accoutrements, however with a modern twist. As you’ll see in my photos below, the hotel has a lovely lobby, the rooms are really more like suite’s, with many rooms and sitting rooms and the bathroom is really superb. It includes a shower AND a nice tub, with... More

I spent a weekend here for work and was blown away by the history and beauty of this hotel. My room was so spacious! I think it was larger than my apartment in NYC! The bathroom had a shower and a tub and there was an additional sitting area separate from the bedroom. It was lovely. The hotel itself is... More
