We stayed one night in this lovely hotel. The valet parking attendants were prompt and courteous. The hotel staff were very friendly and polished. The hotel had a feeling of old world magnificence and leisure. There was a wedding in the exquisite ballroom and we lingered in the lobby admiring the wedding party. Our king room and spacious bathroom were... More

If you enjoy museums and beauty, this hotel will please you no end. It is simply lovely. The Green Room restaurant is a delight and I love to take customers and friends there. The food is reliably good and the service is impeccable. I always make sure that my guests can use valet because Willmington is not the safest place... More

The Hotel du Pont harkens back to an early age of opulence and grandeur in travel. The decor, while well maintained, is essentially what was around for the past century. The history of the hotel and fascinating artwork is very well preserved. It may take a little getting used to, especially with all of the cookie cutter, sterile conference hotels... More

Regretfully i had only one night at this hotel. it is simply fabulous. Fabulous room and great service but the real bonus was the magnificent foyer, green room, ceilings etc. totally old world charm and elegance at its best. Perfect location in the old centre and part of the tradition of this State and its foundations.

Wife and I stayed during the weekend celebrating her birthday. Large room on the 10th floor with two queens (they do not advertise rooms with two beds) was very, very nice, BUT view was terrible, looking into the open area between wings of the building and seeing air exchanger duct systems. I guess for a four star hotel the price... More

My partner and I often pick a city to visit in December so we can take in the Christmas traditions of a new place. We consider this trip our Christmas gift to each other so opted to stay at the Hotel du Pont, a member of the Historic Hotels of America preservation club, in downtown Wilmington. They let us do...

EVERYTHING is EXCEPTIONAL. The bedding, the towels, the bathroom, the decor, and free WIFI. Even the hallways are pin drop quiet. NO thin walls here. This is a luxurious hotel. It is soothing to be here, so very relaxing and elegant. The front desk staff are great. Dining is in the Green Room. The food is delicious, with excellent service.... More

Our stay at the Hotel DuPont was one of the highlights of our trip. It is a shining gem in Wilmington. The renovation has kept all the old world elegance but with a bit of contemporary flair - we were especially impressed by the lobby - and our room was immensely comfortable. the front desk actually greeted us by name...

It's an old hotel; that's part of the charm. The hotel has done a good job renovating furniture and its style, but it's still a bit dated. It's a nice spot though and I stay when I visit family in the area. Rooms are pretty large and so are the bathrooms.

Perhaps I have different idea of what 4 star service and hotels are based on staying in LA, NYC, London, Paris, Taipei etc but what I received here was very disappointing. I don't whether they were homophobic, or just plain ignorant. The front desk staff was rude as were other service staff and seemed to lack class or manners. The... More
