The hotel is immaculate and well-preserved. My room was well-appointed. Staff was extremely helpful with my business needs. Hotel in restaurant seems to be the best food in the area. I appreciated the upgrade I received upon arrival. My only issue was with the valet service. I requested my car at 5 AM, when there was no one ahead of... More

Oldie Goldie feel. Very cozy and luxurious. Our suite was beautiful, and the service was attentive and friendly. Sunday Brunch in the Green Room was fabulous. There was even a pianist! The hotel was located within walking distance or a short cab ride to lots of great restaurants and attractions. We enjoyed the Gunpowder Works, The Delaware Art Museum, and... More

This hotel is wonderful. It is throw back to pure elegance with out any evidence of. Being old and run down. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is attentive without being annoying. The only thing I did not like was the bathroom floor. It became very slippery when wet. If you want a relatively inexpensive cup of coffee... More

I have stayed at Hotel duPont twice, once in 2014 and most recently in November 2015. The rooms are beautiful. The staff is friendly. There are a lot of options for restaurants and food choices in and extremely close to the hotel.

I booked this hotel for my son who got married on 12/12/15 I must say living in Delaware I had no idea how beautiful this hotel is. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. I got it at an amazing prize and my son and his wife was blown away.

Fantastic choice for a quick getaway from Philly. I had never stayed at the Hotel du Pont but heard great things. Decided to try it for a New Year's Day escape. What a great choice. The staff was incredibly accommodating....They upgraded our room and gave us a late checkout. The room was very spacious and clean. The old world charm... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel DuPont for New Year's Eve. Our room was beautiful and the staff were so helpful. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the holidays and there was a wedding reception that evening as well. Upon checkout the person at the desk remembered our conversation with her the night before that we had our... More

I love the ambiance of dark detailed wood work, elaborate ceilings, and formal service. We stayed during the New Year and the lobby, restaurant and ballroom were beautifully decorated. Valet parking was included in our package as was the morning breakfast making it an extremely good value. Service at the valet and front desk was personable and professional. However, the... More

We stayed in a standard king room for one night. There was no mini refrigerator for starters. Secondly, I am under 5 ft tall and could not see in the bathroom mirror to put my contacts in, dry my hair or do my make up. It would've been nice if instead of the Dupont advertising poster over the desk, they... More

I read some bad press about the hotel because they voided reservations for some homeless people but the pastor that booked it had some shady history himself so I went to my business meeting with hesitation. However, my stay was extremely pleasant (stayed for 3 nights for business) and I would definitely return if I am in the area again.... More
