"Hotel Dupont Room Review"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room was beautiful. I loved the layout and furniture arrangement. The sheets were very crisp a little too starched. Great service.

4.5 out of 5. Based on 827 guest reviews, Very Good

Property Description

At once an architectural icon, an internationally renowned hotel, and the pride of Delaware, HOTEL DU PONT has many stories to tell. Nestled in the heart of Wilmington, Delaware and the picturesque Brandywine Valley, one of the country's grandest hotels is as rich in history and tradition as it is in atmosphere.The twelve-story Italian Renaissance building was commissioned by DuPont Company president Pierre S. du Pont. It debuted in 1913 after a two-and-a-half year labor of love by French and Italian craftsmen who carved, gilded and painted this exceptional landmark to life. From the lavish splendor of the lobby to the shimmering majesty of the Gold Ballroom, every detail speaks to an eye for flawless style.After opening, the hotel instantly earned international fame, rivaling the finest hotels in New York City and Europe while serving as the financial and social epicenter for the Wilmington elite. Expansion of the property in 1918 brought further enhancements, with the additions of the Gold Ballroom, du Barry Room and the DuPont Theatre, which is now known as the Playhouse on Rodney Square. The hotel remains committed to retaining the warmth and splendor that have made us so highly regarded for almost a century. To step inside is to find yourself transported back to a time of craftsmanship and courtesy, of ease and elegance, sophistication and style, an era when people knew how to travel in style and expected the very best. Those values are preserved today in the service we provide each and every guest.
