The hotel was great overall, but the service was spectacular. Dennis in particular went above and beyond to help me. I had forgotten to pack pants and didn't realize until 8am in the morning, 30 minutes before a meeting. Dennis was able to scrounge up a pair for me and literally

Hotel is the goto place for business with excellent service and beautiful rooms. All rooms are suites that are set up for work and a great nights sleep. I reccuthe cage for a quick breakfast or the Green room if you want a private meeting.

The hotel is grand. The architecture is amazing. They sure don't make them like this anymore. The wedding was beautiful. The cocktail hour and reception rooms were very nice. The guest rooms are dated and need a makeover.

Hello, I’m trying to sort out why it says pet friendly . Do they only accept dogs ? I’d like to bring my cat with me for the night but the person on the phone said dogs only. The website is a little misleading . Any help?
My first instinct would be to contact the hotel management. But it seems you've already done so. So, if the person at the front desk says dogs only, then I would guess it's dogs only! That's the best answer I have for you, sorry.

I like to read the Sunday paper in a relaxed, quiet place. Is the lounge good for this?
Thank you for your question. The Lobby Lounge is a perfect place to sit and read the paper. There is plenty of comfortable seating and a server available for coffee, tea, a drink or something to eat. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that it will be quiet. The hotel is usually full on the weekends with many guests checking out. It really does depend on the time of day. There is, however, a sitting room with a couch in almost every guest room if you should find the Lobby Lounge a little too energized! We hope you enjoy your stay!

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.
We were there in March, low season, so I'd call the hotel to ask.
