I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on such a short trip --two nights, but it was well worth it! We booked two packages, "Champagne & Strawberries" and "Longwood Gardens". For some reason our internet reservation for the "Champagne and Strawberries" did not come through, but once we called and the mistake was realized, it was delivered... More

We took advantage of the Longwood Gardens and Winterthur packages offered by the Hotel du Pont, and found everything associated with the hotel absolutely perfect. From the reservations handled by Ray, to our large suite with huge modern bathroom, to wonderful room service breakfasts, to a first class 5 star dinner in the Green Room, we couldn't stop raving about...

My wife and I must have stayed at a different Hotel du Pont than some of the previous posters did, because we found the staff to be outstanding. We have both worked in the hospitality industry for years, and while we try to be forgiving if a staff member seems to be trying hard... I'm sorry if it sounds like... More

To start I should tell you I work for the company that owns the Hotel, although I don't work for the hotel itself. I've stayed at the hotel for both business and leisure. Having lived and worked in the area for many years, I have found the Hotel DuPont to be stellar. Nothing in downtown Wilmington comes close. The hotel... More

The staff was very courteous and attentive. The rooms were clean and very elegant! We had the Legendary Package, which included a gift certificate for the Green Room. Dinner was delicious. This is the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway!

We absolutely LOVED this hotel. We arrived quite early, at 10.30 a.m. and were checked in and given our room keys immediately (we thought we would have to wait for the standard check-in time of 3 p.m.). The room was huge and VERY clean. The shower was amazing. We were able to control the temperature in the room, which is... More

This is our second stay at the Hotel Du Pont. We got a package deal including a luxury room, parking and breakfast for $159/per night. From the moment we arrived to checkout time, the staff treated us with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. There was never a hint of stuffiness on the part of any staff member. The oversized room... More

We have a tradition of making short trips to close locations just to experience the city. We chose just such a trip to Wilmington Delaware and discovered the Hotel du Pont. We knew that it had an excellent reputation so we wanted to experience it. However, we were surprised. The facility itself and the accommodations are quite modern and rated... More

We booked one night using the "Home for the Holidays" package. This package was a really good deal. The public spaces in the hotel are just beautiful. We had a lite dinner in the very nice hotel bar and breakfast in the lovely Green Room the next morning. Both meals were good. The room was large and nice. It was... More
