I was in town with family for a lacrosse tournament and chose to stay here. Glad I did. The rooms are very large and the service was very good. The green room is a special place and the art collection is fantastic. Yes - the building is old - and some thing(s) could use some updating - but IMO if... More

The hotel is beautiful. Old world charm. If you appreciate intricate architectural details this is a must. Rooms are very comfortable with lovely amenities. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable - very eager to please. Hotel is located downtown and on the weekends it is very quiet. It is close driving distance to major attractions - Longwood Gardens and... More

I have read some middling reviews of the Hotel du Pont, but was so pleasantly surprised to see how big and well appointed the rooms were. A great place for an affair as well as the ballroom is beautiful

I had a great room with a living room area and a big sunken tub. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, room service was great, the bar was fun and the front desk was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. My only two complaints would be the noise from the air conditioner turning on and off (which... More

We stayed in a suite. Design of the room was vintage and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was significantly bigger than most. The building itself had a very classic feel. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

If you want to feel like you are rubbing elbows with the Vanderbilts, come here. This hotel exudes the grace of the Gilded Age, but has kept up with times with all the desirable amenities of the current day. Even though this hotel is greater than 100 years old, the rooms are well maintained, elegantly furnished and comfortable. Also, nothing... More

Could be a classic hotel, but they miss the mark. Room staff is inefficient. Call the front desk for a couple of items that should have been, but were not in the room. They promised delivery, but after over an hour I had to go to the front desk, request again and pick them up myself and return to the... More

We recently stayed here on a weeknight and the room was lovely. However the service was awful. We valet parked and the bellman took our bags. Thirty minutes later our phone rings and it is Mohammed at the front desk asking us to describe our luggage. Then the phone rings and they ask us to describe our car and give... More
