This is a beautiful old elegant hotel that has been modernized, so don't take the "old" statement to mean run down. The sleeping rooms are large and the meeting rooms really stunning. I planned a three day event at this property and the space is terrific. Overall staff need to step up. There were multiple mistakes in rooming lists, billing... More

If you're traveling on business or in Wilmington for a wedding, it's a lovely place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the facility is beautiful as well. However - there are limited dining options unless you want to spend a fortune on room service or to eat in the Green Room. There's a tiny bar outside... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying here over a weekend for a friend's wedding. The room was extremely clean and had a great deal of old world charm. Wood details, accents, and high ceiling all lead to a luxurious feeling. Adding to this was the well appointed and updated bathroom and makeup nook. The bed was extremely comfortable and... More

For the past 55 yrs I've heard about this hotel and wanted to stay there. Last July 2014, finally got a chance to stay there. It's an elegant, beautiful old hotel, and a great place to stay in Wilmington.

Beautiful rooms, nicely appointed. staff was very welcoming from Valet to check in . Just don't go to the green room lounge unless you love poor service and bartenders that don't belong in the service business

Not sure how you could give less than full stars. Lovely hotel that dominates the centre of the town. Beautiful reception and green room (photo attached) great for breakfast. Lovely rooms and even has its own cinema. How many hotels can boast that?

We spent two nights at the Hotel Du Pont recently as part of a wedding. We really enjoyed the historic ambiance of the hotel, including the impressive lobby. The rooms themselves were quite spacious and the beds are incredibly comfortable. However, if you look too closely, you’ll realize that the rooms are getting worn out in some places. The décor...

"Historic" can be a double edged sword - it can be well kept or run down - the Hotel du Pont is in decently good shape for a hotel that opened in 1913 but sometimes there is no hiding its age... our room however was very spacious with a king bed, a sitting area, a large bathroom with both a...

This hotel, like Wilmington has seen better days. Not only Has the hotel seen better days but so has the staff. The people behind the front desk look tired and annoyed to be working there. We practically had to beg for a map of the area. Wilmington itself is a big nothing and I certainly would not suggest going there... More
