By far the best hotel in the area. Great service. Great food. Old world charm and elegance. The ballroom is absolutely magnificent. Rooms could use a bit of updating, but overall super comfortable and clean and lovely.

The property is lavish and luxe but parts of it are getting outdated. Still high recommended. The front desk staff, unfortunately, was not fully accommodating. Pets and parking were dealt with in an overly curt manner which was unwelcoming for a first time guest.

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Old but not up to date. The bathroom was beautiful and modern with a large tub and separate shower. Very clean. The bed was large and really comfortable. The woodwork throughout the hotel is spectacular...stop and take a good look...truly beautiful. Staff was friendly.

Stayed at the Hotel du Pont during a court hearing while on business. Stunning location, historic building, wonderful rooms, and a very fine restaurant. Located in the midst of the financial and legal district. Only used the Lobby Lounge on the first level for meals but very satisfied with service, menu selections and food. Excellent hotel with first class appointments.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel du Pont in July 2015 and had a wonderful stay. The 9th floor one bedroom room overlooked hotel front. Very quiet. Visited Nemours and Winterthur. Enjoyed relaxing cocktail hour in hotel's intimate elegant bar. On to dinner in hotel dining room, an amazing experience. Live musicians playing above on a wrought iron...

Husband and I needed a quick place to stay and googled what was around and we were very happy with our choice. We had a great time and thought about returning in the near future. Clean room and beautifully decorated. Highly recommend

BEWARE! VALET PARKING THIEVES! We were there for a six figure wedding on 10/29/2016, we trusted an establishment of this stature would have their customers best interest in mind. So how does just a purse that is hidden in the car go missing? No forced entry, nothing else missing! Not even a carton of cigarettes visibly out in the open?...
