History

From the beginning, the HOTEL DU PONT was intended to establish a prestigious hotel in Wilmington, one that would rank among the finest European hotels. When the landmark property opened in 1913, there was little doubt that such goals were achieved. The intricate detail of the historic hotel—its carved woodwork, gilded ceilings and elaborate marble and mosaic floors—required the labors of 18 French and Italian craftsmen for more than two years. Such details were also carried into the rest of the hotel; with polished-brass beds covered with imported linen. Sterling silver comb, brush and mirror sets were on every dressing table. It was the talk of the region, and more than 25,000 visitors toured the historic hotel during its first week.

HOTEL DU PONT, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2014, dates back to 1913.
