The history of the Hotel Du Pont

The twelve-story Italian Renaissance building debuted in 1913 after a two-and-a-half year labor of love by French and Italian craftsmen who carved, gilded and painted this exceptional landmark to life. From the lavish splendor of the lobby to the shimmering majesty of the Gold Ballroom, every detail speaks to an eye for flawless style.

After opening, this beautiful hotel in Wilmington, DE instantly earned international fame, rivaling the finest hotels in New York City and Europe while serving as the financial and social epicenter for the Wilmington elite. Expansion of the property in 1918 brought further enhancements, with the additions of the Gold Ballroom, Du Barry Room and the theatre, which is now known as the Playhouse on Rodney Square.
