Hotel du Pont Hotel Review: With its elegant and extravagant atmosphere, this hotel would feel right at home among Europes finest lodgings. When it opened in 1913, it was a showcase of French and Italian craftsmanship. Over the years it has attracted the likes of Charles Lindbergh, Ingrid Bergman and Bob Hope, and today its glamorous look continues to lure discriminating travelers. As well, it offers an incomparable 30,000-plus square-feet of outstanding meeting and banquet space. Among the many options for conferences, weddings and more is the Gold Ballroom, whose French Neoclassic style provides an extravagant backdrop for receptions and social events. Guests can also enjoy access to the meeting facilities at the DuPont Country Club and exclusive use of the Brantwyn country estate, which is perfect for executive retreats. The guest rooms and suites are done in tasteful shades of cocoa and cream, and they feature separate sitting areas, TVs tucked away in mahogany columns and brass fittings in the bathrooms. Contemporary touches such as glass-topped coffee tables blend tastefully with the traditional décor. With its French cuisine, coffered polished wood ceiling and harpist on Friday and Saturday nights, The Green Room is a favorite for special occasions. The Playhouse Theatre, with its Victorian state, has been a local tradition for almost a century.
