Booked online to stay close to Philadelphia and in doing so saved about 50% off the standard room rate. Accomodations are tremendous in this gorgeous hotel. Staff is extremely helpful and always available. Concierge Rocks! Valet Parking is always appreciated, especially when you're staying inside city limits. Secure parking lot is camera monitored and well lighted. Car only took about... More

We recently stayed at the Du Pont for a wedding in Wilmington. The property served as the main hotel for the wedding guests and was the site of the reception. Every aspect about the hotel was top notch - the rooms, the bar, the room service and the reception service. My wife and I had our wedding less than 2... More

Breakfast in Green Room is to die for....their breakfast danishs melted in my... More

Wanting my 50th birthday to be special we went to the Hotel Dupont as we've been there many times over the yrs as we're Delawareans. This time was so disappointing we won't go back. The front desk service was nonchalant, the rooms were worn terribly & had several broken features- small dated TV's,soiled worn out carpet, lopsided broken toliet seat,... More

Spectacular lobby and wonderful personal service. Lovely room with separate sitting area and a TV which swivels so it can be watched in either area. The most spectacular thing was the bathroom which has a big full tub and a separate shower, and is filled with big thick towels, wonderful toiletries, plenty of counter space, good lights and mirrors which...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Du Pont for a wedding last August. We drove down from New York and when we were a block away, we blew out a tire. Not being frequent drivers we had no idea what to do, so thank God for the Hotel Du Pont valets! A team of 6 or 7 of... More

The hotel is beautiful and the rooms lovely, including large size and top notch linens and towels. However service and friendliness was spotty. Attention to detail was not acceptable. We had a package deal with tickets, parking, breakfast. They didn't have the tickets ready and had to double check on them for us. They charged us for the breakfast and... More

It is my job to book about 50 or more agents of our company for our annual Jnauary Kick Off Meeting. In the past we have done cruises to the Caribbean, millionaire mansions on the Millionaire Miracle Mile on the water in Fort Lauderdale, etc. We always want the meeting to be first class as a reward for all the...

I stayed at the Hotel DuPont for a college friend's wedding. I was there one night and was immediately impressed and at ease when I pulled up. The location is about 6 straight blocks off of I-95 and so easy to get to. The valet was attentive and quick to help me with my bags and take care of my... More

We had been to the Brandywine Valley area but had not stayed in WImington proper and booked a room at the Hotel DuPont. It has a very lovely lobby and a helpful, down to earth, staff. We stayed in a Queen room which was very nicely decorated and was very comfortable. The bathroom was nicely decorated as well--I loved the... More
