The entire staff at Hotel du Pont was friendly, professional and just amazing! The venue itself is breathtaking, but the quality of service is really what shines here as a wedding location. So many of our guests just had wonderful things to say about the staff, and the whole day could not have gone more perfectly - which I credit to Markie (the coordinator), the catering managers, the valets, serving staff, bartenders, and every single person at Hotel du Pont. They thought of details that I would have missed (bringing the flowers from the wedding to the breakfast the next morning, providing food in the suites where the bridal party got ready, etc.). Just fantastic! It is a pricier venue, but the food was out of this world, the look of the rooms are so unique and breathtakingly beautiful, and then it was a joy to work with each staff member.Sent on 10/19/2016

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!Sent on 10/22/2018
