I travel for business and stay at the Hotel du Pont on average about once a month. It reminds me of the Plaza Hotel in its heydays when I would stay there with my parents in the '80s. The rooms are clean and spacious and the housekeeping staff is quite accommodating, very important when you are away from home and... More

Lovely hotel, like going back in time. Classy, clean, and high service levels. Your weather report is hand delivered daily. Someone comes to turn down the bed (but no chocolates on the pillow?). Two things tell all you need to know. When we arrived, we were offered (and accepted) a suite instead of a single. Two baths, jacuzzi, nice living... More

This may be a four except... When we were thinking of making reservations, my sister-in-law contacted the hotel about afternoon tea. I also contacted them twice to make sure they understood that we were going to be staying at the hotel. We were told that tea was already fully booked by people on bus tours. The dining room is the... More

As other reviewers mention, this is a grand hotel that exudes history, charm, and luxury. The very large room was very comfortable, and includes many nice touches such as robes, slippers, and delivered ice with turndown service. Room service was quick and the food was great. But anyone staying at this hotel that expects to stay connected to the internet,... More

I was here for a business event at the beginning of September. It was a great treat to have our business meeting and accommodations at such a great hotel. It's gorgeous old hotel with gleaming wood and beaming staff. For casual eating there is a cafeteria-style restaurant downstairs. Very good food and reasonable prices. Quick, too, when you're in a...

This gorgeous old hotel is historic, comfortable and elegant. My husband and I arrived late on a Friday and just squeaked into the magnificent Green Room for a delicious and relaxing dinner. The service was top notch; the food and wine were incredible; the dining room itself was unbelievably beautiful with dark wood paneling and three-story windows trimmed with heavy... More

Wow. What a lovely, lovely hotel. It is historic and just beautiful. We were lucky to be upgraded to the bridal suite. The suite was huge but so comfortable. The shower was perfect. The tub was so deep and so long. I love long baths. This was the best ever. It has a tray for your book. The towels were... More

We've used the Hotel twice, once in 2005 and now in September 2014 for wedding. In both cases, we had a perfect wedding reception. The venue is perfect because the hotel is easily assessable and close to I95 with both valet and self-parking. The hotel rooms are like new, the bathrooms are great, There is a bar for activities both... More

The two of us enjoyed a great dinner earlier this evening. Food was incredible and our service was commendable. The bartender was the best as he made a perfect Dirty Martini and Cosmo. We rarely have more than one cocktail upon an outing but they were so on spot, we enjoyed two each. Your hostess was on mark, and took... More

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
