With a storied elegance and tradition befitting one of the most prestigious hotels in the world, the Hotel du Pont stands as a magnificent bridge between Wilmington, Delaware’s rich past and cosmopolitan present.

Since welcoming its first guests in 1913, the hotel has remained a Gilded Age icon, a monument to a time when artistry, grace, and sophistication ruled the day and an era when travel meant something special and exciting. Then and now, arriving guests are greeted by accommodations and social areas framed by ornate, hand-carved wood, mosaic, and terrazzo floors, and imported European chandeliers — all first created by the finest French and Italian craftsmen of their time and beautifully maintained for over 100 years.
