Everything was just as I suspected it to be…elegant with bits of history… So many famous people have stayed at this hotel, danced in the ballroom, eaten in the various bars and restaurants! Thought the pictures by the elevators were a nice touch. Should have been identified.
Old style hotel like the Fairmont copley Plaza in Boston or the Plaza in NYC- you get what you pay for- it's pricey but elegant. the restaurant is classic but pricey- nice for a special occasion-and it's very close to Brandywine attractions.
Wonderful staff during wedding and reception. The rooms were large and spacious, could use minor updating. Room service was excellent. The reception dinner was fantastic and the wait staff was so attentive. The bartenders were wonderful and kept the line moving quickly.
We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel DuPont for a little getaway immensely. Drinks at the Green Room Bar, Dinner at Le Cavalier, and breakfast were all a very good experience. The room was quiet and spacious. We enjoyed the entire experience.
Thermostat was non functional, resulting in the room being way to warm and resulted in a very uncomfortable nights sleep. We reported the issue to the front desk and they very pleasantly asked an engineer to check on the issue and offered to move us to another room. As we were going out for the evening, it wasn't convenient to switch rooms and it was clear upon our return the issue wasn't resolved.
