Luxurious!

Location: Longwood Gardens, Winterthur Museum and Gardens, several museums, Brandywine Zoo
Hotel du Pont may be the fanciest hotel we will ever see in our lives! We got a great deal through Travelocity and splurged a little, and I am so glad we did. This hotel is absolutely beautiful, in a regal, old-school-classy kind of way. Our room was impeccable, including a sitting area and huge bathroom, with a deep soaking tub that provided the nicest bath I have ever taken. We ordered room service for dinner, which was delivered promptly and in a lovely manner. We had some problems with the TV service, and called down to the front desk to inquire about it (politely!); it was attributed to heavy rains that night interfering with the satellite service. Half an hour later, we received a bottle of complimentary champagne delivered to our room as an apology. Our package included breakfast in The Green Room the next morning, which we used to enjoy the most delicious breakfast buffet we have ever eaten, complete with fresh-squeezed orange juice. The staff was extremely accommodating, and we felt completely pampered. We enjoyed our stay immensely!

Pros: Luxurious elegance! You feel pampered just walking the hallways. It is so quiet you never hear the HVAC system or other guests coming/going.
Cons: Ice can only be obtained thru room service, mini fridge is only for mini bar items and no in room coffee maker.
We had a lovely romantic weekend. We self parked and were disappointed that the same rate is charged on weekends as it is during the week. Weekends are a ghost town in that area without the business people.
