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

Had high tea in their beautiful dining room. Then had a tour of the rooms. Hope to stay there someday soon. Located in the downtown core which was nice. The staff are lovely. If you like old and history this is the place to be!

If you want to treat yourself, this is the place to go in Wilmington. You feel like you are stepping back in time, with old world elegance. Room was beautiful, with all the extras, deep tub, bathrobes, slippers, comfy beds, and a turndown service. Very spacious. Only things missing was the bottle opener for the beers from the mini fridge,... More

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
