3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

I came here for a business trip in January. We held a focus group meeting here so we spent quite a bit of time in the hotel itself. I'll start with the good: The staff was very nice, friendly and efficient from the front desk person to the banquet staff. The guest rooms are beautiful and charming. The restaurant in... More

My husband and I just got back from a night at the Hotel Dupont. We had stayed there about 10 years ago and returned because we thought it was such a beautiful hotel. Well, we were not disappointed. The room was very well maintained and spacious. We had a very comfortable sitting area and a super comfortable king bed. The... More

The rooms are more like suites with a separate sitting area and huge King size bedroom area. The marble bathroom has a large jetted tub and a walk in shower and a separate vanity area. Valet parking is pricey but is only about $6.00 more than self parking and the valet option allows unlimited in/out privileges. We actually found free... More

Hotel DuPont is gracious and comfortable. Unlike other reviewers, I found the service to be warm and effective. The valet guys were great, driving us to restaurants and helping out generally. Laundry came back in no time, even on the 4th of July. I only had one meal in the restaurant (which was good, not incredible), but room service was... More

I have to echo previous reviewers who noted inconsistent service at this beautiful, historic hotel, where we stayed for one night for a friend's wedding. The pros: Gorgeous lobby. Gorgeous rooms and bathrooms. The cons: The brunch is ridiculously over priced -- we're talking $19 for Eggs Benedict -- and there didn't seem to be much else in the area.... More

The hotel is decorated beautifully and our room was perfect (spacious and well-appointed). Overall the service was great and I was very impressed with the staff being so responsive and accommodating. If we ever return to Wilmington, we'll only stay at Hotel DuPont. It was a lovely experience all around.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2011

The good parts of the hotel are that it is pretty, & our room was clean & spacious with a huge bathroom. Now for the bad parts. Normally, service is not a major concern for us when we travel. However, in this scenario, the service got to a point where it became an issue. The front desk was extremely rude... More

It's very pretty, clean, and the service is great. The rooms are very roomy and the bathrooms are quite big. My room, however, had these horribly annoying floor lights that could not be turned off. I had to drag luggage and furniture in front of them to block the light so that it didn't disturb my sleep. Also, the food... More

The hotel is well located, with an imposing lobby and restaurant and equally grand ballroom. By contrast the lifts are relatively dowdy and pokey. The rooms are spacious, with excellent televisions - bathrooms perhaps showing their age a little, but equally generously sized. Main criticisms for me arose over breakfasts - the poached eggs I requested arrived fried and the... More
