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...

I recently stayed at the Hotel du Pont for one night, and it’s truly a lovely hotel. It is a beautiful, historic property that is definitely the grande dame of Delaware. The rooms are large and grand, and you’ll feel like you’re stepping into the early 1900s (in a good way) by being at the hotel. I was staying there... More

The Hotel du Pont is a beautiful old hotel, but it is priced as if it is in the most expensive sections of Manhattan. Service is good and it is a genuinely nice place, though I do think it is not much of a value with weekday prices exceeding $400.

Stayed at the Hotel du Pont recently for a family wedding. The hotel is beautiful and elegant. The rooms are suites, with a large sitting area and wonderful bathroom. Everything was clean and sparkling. We stayed in a suite with a king bed that was super comfortable. Several reasons for rating this as 4 and not 5 stars: no coffee... More
