          This hotel has both renovated and un-renovated rooms. The renovated room I stayed in was great with a bathtub and shower. The older room I stayed in had a view of other buildings and a bathroom in need of some maintenance. Both rooms were clean.

          What is the cost to park while staying at The DuPont? Plan to be in town for a wedding, on the weekend, in late Sept, but, will be coming and going from the hotel quite a bit.

          Yes, if it is true, I am saddened by the story that a good samaritan booked a few rooms at your hotel so that a few homeless people could have a night out of the freezing cold. And if it is correct, a few hours after, the hotel canceled those reservations. What a Christian and holiday spirit, at least if you are greedy. I truly are sad and will never stay at your hotel or recommend it. There are other nice places in Wilmington such as Hilton's Christiana Hotel. Donald Trump may love you but we don't.
