Renovations have actually reduced the number of rooms at Hotel du Pont to 217, including 11 suites. But that’s a good thing. The Luxury Guestrooms actually have two rooms: a sitting room and bedroom. A nifty mahogany cabinet, which looks like a pillar, rotates so you can view the TV in either space.
The carpeting and upholstery are in classic shades of gold, beige and taupe, while the woodwork is dark and rich. It would all look appropriate in an upscale home in Chateau Country, a rolling section outside the city sprinkled with estates, including Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library. Vanity countertops are made out of DuPont’s Corian, of course. While sophisticated and classic, the Wilmington hotel rooms are also comfortable. And there’s not a fussy touch in sight.
