What a beautiful hotel. Truly enjoyed our stay the week after Christmas. Our room was nicely appointed. Staff was very friendly without being a bother. Complimentary car service for pick- up the train station was very nice. Food & Bar service was superb.

I recently visit the hotel Jan 16 , 2012. This historical hotel over 100 years old is wonderful both for business and leisure. The property itself is worth visiting with the stunning ceiling work restored by Italian artists to the old world Green Room restaurant impeccably preserved. Sunday brunch with Harp is very special. It is not just the food... More

Luncheon buffet was interesting with lots of variety. One suggestion since this is a favored spot for business luncheons, arrive early since the offerings get decimated as clock winds towards 1 pm.

I actually work in Wilmington and live about a 15 minute drive away. I have been to the Hotel DuPont for many, many events (breakfasts, lectures, charity auctions, etc.) Over the holiday weekend, my significant other and I were out drinking with friends. I was staggering back to my car when I realized that I really shouldn't be driving, so... More

I have traveled to over 100 hotels in my lifetime and the service at the Hotel DuPont was the worst I've ever experienced. My wife and I stayed at the hotel in connection with a wedding, and the terrible service was immediately apparent upon check-in. We transported our luggage and large boxes full of wedding gift bags. As we were... More

$139 price was too good to stay anywhere else for the Holidays. This is a beautiful first class Hotel. For my review I will offer photos of the Hotel decorated for Christmas. I agree with most of the reviews posted. Last stay was in a suite, which was like a luxury family apartment. This time, just a room which is... More

Hotel du pont is gorgeous, with spacious rooms that are well maintained. We brought a 18 month old and they were helpful stocking the room in advance with a crib, appropriate crib sheet, blanket and small refridgerator per our request. The bed was comfortable, and the entire room was clean. Service at the hotel, particularly in the restaurant (the Green... More

I have stayed at the Hotel DuPont probably 15 or 20 times times over the last 10 years, and the last time I stayed there was in October, 2011. The best thing about this hotel has always been that the rooms are bigger than any hotel rooms around (suites really) and the bathrooms are huge and luxurious. The negative has... More

I only spent one night here and I didn't make the arrangements so I can't comment on the value or on the room options. However, I enjoyed my short stay here. My room was spacious and included a sitting area with a couch and a desk, plus a really large bathroom that has a separate shower from the tub. The... More

We spent one night here for a wedding we attended early November. The service was fantastic. The Hotel Du Pont is a throwback to the glory days associated with the Du Pont family and maintains its classic design in its rooms. At the same time, the rooms are modern with all the latest features and the bathroom was beautiful. The... More
