Enjoyed our stay here. The beds are very comfortable and the room is nice. We had a one bedroom suite with a separate living/kitchen. On Tues., Wed., and Thurs. there is a light dinner offered in case you don't feel like going out. Also, the breakfast is great with hot and cold food. Overall, this hotel is pleasant and located in a convenient place.

Superb job in redecorating. Beautiful King Studio! Very spacious and comfortable. Beautiful and well equipped kitchen. Large sofa and desk area. Very good wifi. Great breakfast and beautiful common area. Quiet location. Very convenient to all the outlets and restaurants. Will definitely return. Nicest suite hotel in Williamsburg. And we have stayed at many over the last 30 years. Too many of the hotels in Williamsburg have gone seedy. This one has gotten better! It was a very good decision on the part of management to invest in the property, as a Marriott Rewards Elite member, I will strongly recommend to friends. ............................................................. ...........................

Hotels in this area are expensive and this place is no exception. Rooms are a bit larger than at a typical Residence Inn. Service especially from front desk staff was attentive. Had some trouble getting AAA discount but ended up getting it.

You really don't need to look anywhere else. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL. Rooms are classy and new. The best part about this hotel is the staff. Everyone was so Helpful. The training they put these employees through must be good because everyone was genuine. It is hard to find - if you see Chili's it is right behind the restaurant. The breakfasts are free and very good. Different every day. When you get to your suite remember to turn the icemaker on in the freezer, there are not ice machines in the hotel

Room Tip: The two room suites offer a lot of room if you are traveling with a large family.

We decided a week ago to visit Williamsburg, as it is now more or less off season, we got a room for a very reasonable rate. We have a 1 bedroom suite 1 bath - 2 queen sized bed sofa sleeper in the common room along with a kitchette w/ microwave, cook top, small, but a full sized refrigerator, kitchen table seating four, and dishwasher. (The rooms were all done over last year.)

As expected at a Marriott affiliated brand, the bed was very comfortable. In the bathroom, I like that there is shelving in the tub and by the sink to store bath accessories and make up and toothpadte The bedroom and common room both have flat screen TVs. WiFi is free. Breakfast is included.


The hotel is about 5 minutes east of the outlet malls, 10-15 minutes west of Colonial Williamsburg, and about 25 minute northeast of Jamestown.

Because it is September, the outdoor pool has been emptied, but we were told we could use the indoor pool at the Springhill Suites across the parking lot. The fitness room only has one elliptical trainer and one treadmill, but no one was using it either time I went to the fitness room.

Great hotel. Extremely clean, nice breakfast, excellent coffee, ad close to everything the area has to offer, and allows pets. The beds were great and it appeared to be newly remodeled. Would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.

The hotel is right on the boardwalk and within walking distance of some nice restaurants. The rooms are large. Ours had a full kitchen, a sitting room with a couch and side chair, and adequate counter space in the bathroom. We only stayed one night, but this would be a good place to stay for a couple of days or a week. The breakfast is included and was pretty good - eggs, sausage, pancakes, plus all the usual continental breakfast items. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. One caveat - parking is VERY limited. They have complimentary valet parking, but when you are checking out be sure to leave plenty of time because it took awhile for our car to show up. Overall, we'd stay here again next time we're in Va Beach.
