WILMINGTON, DE—PM Hotel Group has assumed management of the 217-room Hotel du Pont here. The management company also will oversee a multimillion-dollar renovation of the hotel to include preserving historic aspects of the property and its signature Green Room restaurant.
“The Hotel du Pont and our recently announced Canopy by Hilton Washington, DC | Bethesda North and Canopy by Hilton Portland | Pearl District further authenticate our expansion into the independent and luxury/boutique space,” said Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hotel Group. “We have a long and successful track record in this segment, dating back to 2002 when we operated the world-famous Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C. We will continue to pursue similar opportunities with iconic and historic hotels that offer truly unique experiences and amenities that cannot be replicated. The Hotel du Pont is one of the most acclaimed luxury hotels in the world, and it defines hospitality in the state of Delaware.”
Opened in 1913, the hotel anchors a 950,000-sq.-ft., mixed-use development that includes the DuPont Building. The entire complex will undergo an extensive enhancement that will update and renovate the existing DuPont Building while adding additional retail, commercial and residential components.
