I love everything about CW (yes I am a big dork) We have stayed in all the properties from the Inn to the Colonial Houses, each is a very different experience all awesome in their own way. The Grand Illumination is CWs kick off to the holiday season, the fireworks display is absolutely amazing. Fireworks=Grand Illumination, get it? :) Book early because this is a huge weekend. We were booked in the Lodge as part of the Illumination Package, 3 nights, breakfast included and admission to CW.
Our room was bright, clean and decorated in a folk art style, very cute. Coffee is in the room, individual cup coffee maker, large fridge, flat screen TV. Cable is better than "basic", Bravo, ESPN, HBO etc. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion are larger than what you usually see in comparable hotels, and are replenished everyday, whether you used them or not.
Then only con was the parking, which was our own fault. They do offer valet, but we decided to park ourselves instead of waiting for the valets to come back from parking other cars. Big mistake, we drove around the parking garage stalking people for their parking space, no one was leaving, so after about 1/2 hour of driving up and down the garage, and 25 minutes of swearing at each other my husband found what could loosely be called a parking spot. To this day I don't know how he fit our car in that spot. Do yourself a favor, HAVE THE VALET PARK YOUR CAR!
We have stayed at the Williamsburg Inn twice and I actually like the Lodge better.
