Hotel du Pont announces Downton Abbey Month

12/18/2013 09:28AM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print



Hotel du Pont is planning a month of events based on the hit drama, “Downton Abbey,” to begin in January 2014.   

Inspired by the British television drama on PBS, Downton Abbey Month invites guests to the Green Room restaurant to celebrate a traditional afternoon tea, a specialty lunch, and a formal four-course dinner as it was when the Hotel du Pont opened more than 100 years ago.  

Guests can prepare for the Season 4 premiere on Jan. 5, 2014 with a Downton Abbey Tea, including live entertainment and tables dressed with specialty lace linens. On this day only, guests are also encouraged to wear clothes that were in style in the early 1900s.  Guests will enjoy a three-course tea service, and can choose from a variety of teas including the new Hotel du Pont centennial blend.  Tea service begins at 3:30 p.m. and is $34 per person.

From Jan. 6 through Jan. 17, guests can enjoy a themed Downton Abbey Lunch in the Green Room, priced at $19.12 (the year that the show was originally set).  

On Jan. 11, the Green Room will host a four-course Downton Abbey Dinner.  Live entertainment and white-glove service will help set the tone. Special guest Tom Savage, the director of museum affairs at Winterthur Museum and Gardens, will be in attendance to share details regarding the upcoming Downton Abbey Exhibit at Winterthur, which will begin in March 2014.  Dinner is $100 per person (including gratuity, wine pairing, and valet parking). 

For more information, or to make a reservation, call 302-594-3154 or 800-338-3404.
