Escape to Hotel Du Pont in Downtown Wilmington, Delaware


Downtown Wilmington’s iconic Hotel Du Pont is a sophisticated and historic great escape just a short drive from the Main Line.

With its opulent chandeliers and hard-carved wood trim, this downtown Wilmington gem has been a showcase of Gilded Age architecture, décor and service since 1913. Rooms and suites at Hotel Du Pont are spacious and furnished to provide a unique combination of elegance and comfort. Amenities include a full-service on-site spa and the recently renovated and rebranded upscale European-style restaurant La Cavalier. Be sure to leave some time for browsing the hotel’s Atelier Ice antiques boutique.
