Hotel at a Glance: 4.5 Star HOTEL DU PONT

A grandiose gold-accented staircase greets guests in the enchanting lobby at the historic HOTEL DU PONT. Previous host to historic figures - including U.S. presidents, world leaders, first ladies, world-renowned musicians, and more - this prestigious hotel sits in the heart of downtown Wilmington and has upheld its traditions of providing unmatched, personalized experiences since it first opened its doors in 1913.

  • The hotel’s signature 4-star restaurant, “The Green Room”, has been awarded the AAA Four-Diamond Award and the Forbes Four-Star award, offering a truly unique, elegant dining experience for guests to enjoy at the hotel.
  • For a more relaxed, casually-sophisticated dining experience, guests can enjoy lighter fare at the hotel café, or grab a sweet treat from the bake shop on-site.
  • Old European charm combines with contemporary amenities to provide comfort and convenience with every stay in a guest room at the hotel. A well-appointed luxury bathroom with upscale bath amenities is included in each room, along with a work desk and HDTV.
  • Lobby libations: Happy hour is served every evening amidst the plush leather lounge chairs and artful couches in the hotel lobby. The lobby also hosts nightly events, where guests can learn the art of cocktail creation or sample a selection of wines during the Wine Flight Night event.
  • Wilmington’s rich culture and heritage surround the hotel. The Soldiers & Sailors Monument, Brandywine Zoo, and Hendrickson House Museum and Old Swedes Church are all just 1 mile away.

Wilmington, Delaware: 17th-Century Colony with Famed American-Art Museum

Wilmington was first founded as a Swedish colony in 1638; naturally, it has no shortage of historical sites. A highlight among them is Fort Christina Park. Though the real ancient fort no longer stands, you can sail the Delaware River aboard a re-creation of the 139-foot Kalmar Nyckel, the settlers’ ship that brought numerous Swedes to the area. This full-size vessel features ornate carvings, seven working cannons, and masts that rise up to 10 stories into the sky. The ship docks near the Wilmington Riverfront, which follows the Christina River. A stroll through this green thoroughfare takes you past myriad cultural institutions, waterfront cafés, and art-deco architecture.

But the city’s most popular cultural center lies outside of downtown. The Delaware Art Museum is home to a vast collection of American art, including many by Edward Hopper, John Sloan, and Howard Pyle. Pyle is also credited with having started the Brandywine School at the end of the 19th century, a local organization that helped to usher in the golden age of American illustration.

I decided to stay there the night before my wedding. I don’t know what it was, but whatever was in the room kept me coughing. I know it was the room because when my photographer came it was affecting him as well. Otherwise the room was ok, the bed was comfy and I slept well.

It was a spacious, lovely room. Very comfortable. The bed was perfect (except for the pillows, which were not). The room temperature was very easy to adjust and maintain.
