    Great place for our wedding guests!

    Hotel duPont was a great choice for our room blocks. The hotel itself is incredibly appointed and beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and a good size. The staff is wonderful and were great to work with throughout the process - constantly providing updates of how many guests had booked under my room block so I knew how many welcome bags & shuttles I needed. They also upgraded my husband & I to a very large honeymoon suit which was truly incredible. Highly recommend!

    The best wedding venue!

    Celebrating our wedding at Hotel Du Pont was a dream come true! To start, we saw the venue for a walk through for the first time and absolutely fell in love. Susan was our wedding manager with the hotel and she was beyond amazing. She never pressured us or tried to force any decisions on us. We came back for a second time and Susan was just as delightful as the first! We decided to book the hotel for our August 2018 wedding. From the time we booked the venue, leading up to our wedding day, Susan was extremely helpful! She answered every email and every question we had consistently. She always made my husband and I feel at ease and we never stressed out. When we went in for our food tasting, Susan made sure to dedicate extra time with us to confirm some details. The food tasting was perfect and the chef and kitchen staff are incredible! The week leading up to our wedding, we increased communication between us and Susan and together finalized all items. Susan made sure to contact our vendors about a week prior in order to coordinate and set everything for us to not have to worry about anything on the day of our wedding. When it came to our hotel block, this went seamlessly. Any of our guests that stayed at the hotel had zero issues booking rooms. The weekend of our wedding was completely flawless due to Susan and her team! When we checked into our hotel room for the weekend, the entire staff made us feel welcomed and special. The morning of our wedding, they had the bridal suite and the groom suite ready to go for us first thing in the morning. All day getting ready, the team at Hotel Du Pont continued to go above and beyond to make my husband and I have the best day of our lives! When it came time for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, everything went perfectly. Susan was there to ensure all logistics ran smoothly, and the main captain of the dining room was there all night with us to make sure he and his staff executed all wedding details flawlessly. We were completely blown away with our wedding! Our guests had an amazing time. Everyone was raving about the hotel, decor, food, everything. Our wedding was the more incredible day of our lives and it is because of Susan, the entire staff at the hotel, and the beauty of Hotel Du Pont that we are forever thankful for!
