Over the course of 100 years, the prestigious Hotel du Pont has welcomed future and former presidents, first ladies, world leaders, Nobel Prize recipients, royalty, music maestros, sports legends, and stars of stage and screen—earning its reputation as the premier hotel in the state of Delaware.

The Green Room, one of the most elegant hotel dining rooms in the country, features traditional French cuisine. The Gold Ballroom and other ornate European-inspired rooms provide luxurious venues for public and private events. A nationally recognized art collection showcasing original paintings by Andrew Wyeth adorns the Christina Room’s walls.

A state-of-the-art conference center and a 1,250-seat theater add to amenities that make the Hotel du Pont a first-choice destination for business and social events. Often labeled the front door of DuPont, the hotel is strategically located in the company’s world headquarters.
