Secret Service was all over downtown, it certainly brought a new energy to the area!

I totally forgot that BPG (who owns the building now) has been converting some of the office space into luxury apartments, and those units are now leasing - it is being marketed as - 101 dupont place. Living at the Hotel du Pont... interesting.


On the ground floor, acclaimed Philly chef Tyler Akin took over the Hotel's historic Green Room, and has now opened a "modern French brasserie" with some modest renovations to the dining space -- the new restaurant is called, Le Cavalier at the Green Room.


And finally, the food hall/bar, DE.CO also on the ground floor, that opened last year - has survived covid! and re-opened yesterday. Very happy about that.

so...lots happening at the old, 107 years old Gilded Age palace.
