Hotel du Pont Review
Built in 1913 by Pierre S. du Pont, this luxury hotel in downtown Wilmington has hosted everyone from Charles Lindbergh to John F. Kennedy. The elegant 12-story building radiates an Old World feel. The lobby has a spectacular carved, gilded, and painted ceiling, polished marble walls, and Queen Anne and Chippendale furnishings. The walls display more than 700 original works of art, including Wyeths and Schoonovers. The spacious guest rooms have a contemporary flair, with soothing Tuscan yellow color schemes and earthy textures. The Green Room is known for its marvelous Sunday brunches.
