Landmark Wilmington Delaware Hotel
Welcome to the Hotel du Pont, one of few landmark hotels in and near Wilmington Delaware, with a rich and fascinating history
During the creation of our Wilmington hotel, no expense was spared in Wilmington's crowning achievement. In the ornate Hotel du Pont public spaces, nearly two dozen French and Italian craftsmen carved, gilded and painted for over two and a half years. Suites with large sitting rooms all featured cozy fireplaces. Polished brass beds were made up with imported linen, while sterling silver comb, brush and mirror sets were placed on the dressing tables.
Today, the main Hotel du Pont Dining Room, now known as the Green Room, fumed oak paneling soared two and a half stories from the mosaic and terrazzo floors below. Rich forest greens, browns and ivories, embellished with gold, decorated the room. Six handcrafted chandeliers and a musicians' gallery overlooked the opulence.
