Location: The Hotel DuPont is an architectural icon internationally renowned hotel, and the pride of Delaware, Hotel DuPont has many stories to tell. Nestled in the heart of Wilmington, Delaware and the picturesque Brandywine Valley, one of the country’s grandest hotels is as rich in history and tradition as it is in atmosphere. The twelve-story Italian Renaissance building debuted in 1913 after a two-and-a-half-year labor of love by French and Italian craftsmen who carved, gilded and painted this exceptional landmark to life. From the lavish splendor of the lobby to the shimmering majesty of the Gold Ballroom, every detail speaks to an eye for flawless style.
