I don't often stay in these types of luxury spaces. My clients put me up for a business engagement. I LOVE my clients even more for this choice! It was a wonderful experience. The lobby is comfortable and beautiful. The service was great. There was never a long line (or a line at all). It felt like the "high-touch" hotel... More

The Hotel Du Pont is a beautifully renovated turn of the century historic structure and well run today. Stayed over a weekend for a wedding and it was a real treat. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely appointed. My only complaint was the high overnight valet charge ($22) for parking.

The hotel lobby is impressive, as is the dining room, with 20' ceilings, carved wood panels, extensive decorations and artwork. The rooms are spacious, well appointed but modern conveniences. My room was quiet, the air conditioning worked well, and the location is convenient to most of Wilmington.

On Saturday our daughter and son-in-law were married at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, Delaware. The event was an overwhelming success. The professional and experienced staff at the hotel made all of the difference. Our guests had positive experiences with every department at the hotel, from the parking valets, to the front desk, to housekeeping, and catering. When your... More

From the first time I checked in on Sunday night the energy of everyone was so loved until Tuesday night when I decided to join friends by the bar for a celebration drink. My friend and I walked in and the bartender of the night of August 23rd ask me for an ID and told him I'm staying here at... More

This is a classic hotel in a somewhat downtrodden city. The staff and rooms are great. Large fitness center and fine dining are available, as well as a nice bar. All in all, an excellent experience and certainly the best hotel in the downtown area.

Customer service was great, hotel accommodation and room were great and, in general, the facility was a great venue for meetings. However, it's missing the basic amenity in the room; that is, coffee maker or kettle for boiling water. After a busy day, I always relax and wind down drinking coffee and/or tea and it was so frustrating that I... More

This is an amazing hotel that is exquisitely cared for and meets all your needs. I was lucky enough to participate in a week long business meeting and actually stay in the Hotel du Pont. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the hotel staff are wonderful, and their food is excellent, whether it is catering or even room service. And I... More

Absolutely beautiful historic hotel in downtown Wilmington! The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. The bathroom is one of the best I have ever seen. There are separate shower and tub areas and a full supply of Gilchrest and Somes toiletries. We used the room service as well and the chef's chocolate cake was DELICIOUS! I highly recommend this hotel... More
