“A Modern Hotel in1776”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

We have stayed at Colonial Williamsburg's colonial homes a number of times since 1971 and have never been disappointed. We always ask for the Brickhouse Tavern, which is ideally located on the Duke of Glouester Street, right in the middle of the historic area. You step out the door and into history. Halfway between the Capital and the Governor's Palace you are close to Revolutionary City activities at the Raleigh Tavern. Dining is nearby. You wont need a car.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Duke of Glouester Street.

We stayed in a house built in the 1700's. Williamsburg Inn has updated these rooms and furnished them with modern conveniences like flat screen TVs. Location is great immediately across the street from the historic village. Not recommended for kids. But, for a romatic getaway for two, it's great. Plus buoy can utilize the pool, spa, restaurants at the Inn.

It was a wonderful get away. The room was beautiful and spacious.This "inn" had the best service, food and drinks. Our room was on the golf room side under a large tree that was gorgeous. Would love to spend more time there in the fall or at Christmas.

My family recently spend 3 days at Colonial Williamsburg and stayed at their flagship property, The Williamsburg Inn. Our entire experience was outstanding, from the greeting at the door by the friendly doormen, to the helpful front desk and Concierge staff. Our children ages 10 yrs. & 13 yrs. experienced real world class service and want to go back at Christmas time when they have many special programs and holiday offerings.

The staff helped us with our itinerary in the Historic Area, but they also provided us with several tips on experiencing fun activities in and around Colonial Williamsburg. A couple of highlights-sit outside on the terrace at the golf club, The Golden Horseshoe Clubhouse for lunch, the menu and service are great, but the view is spectacular. If you have kids, ask the wait staff for some old bread to feed the ducks and fish in the nearby ponds. Take a walk on The Bassett Trail; it’s a fairly easy walking trail, which is behind Bassett Hall, a historic home. Sit outside on the Williamsburg Inn’s terrace and have a drink or coffee, it has a special atmosphere with great views. Go on one of the complimentary walking tours of the hotel or gardens. In addition the Inn and sister property, The Williamsburg Lodge offer numerous family summer activities that you can enjoy with the entire family. We hope to be back at Christmas time!

The Inn is a magnificent place in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. Our room was tastefully decorated and everything you would expect from a world class hotel. Everything is right at your doorstep. One of the two pools lets kids frolic while the quiet pool caters to adults. The golf courses are fabulous, the Regency Room is all about first class dining and the staff exudes southern hospitality. If you want to do the eighteenth century history tours, the Inn is only one block from the Duke of Gloucester Street. Our five days flew by even though the temperatures were near 100. After 40+ trips to this place, we definitely will return. The Williamsburg Inn draws us like a magnet. We are addicted!

We reserved a room at the Williamsburg Inn through the rep at the Visitors Center at about 3:30 p.m.. After she quoted the price, we asked about AAA discount. She informed us that, after 3 p.m., the room was discounted 50%. The main building was filled but she said there was a room available at Providence Hall, on the grounds. We were a bit skeptical. However, Williamsburg Inn is owned by Colonial Williamsburg, and I don't think you could find a more impressive place to stay in Colonial Williamsburg. Our very nice building was not far from the main building that houses the restaurants (good food but a tad pricey). There is a complimentary coffee service in the morning. The Inn is located very close to historical buildings and shops and provides a shuttle to the outlying parts of Colonial Williamsburg, if guests are unable to walk.
Our room was huge, accommodating a king-size bed, large flat-screen TV, desk, sofa, coffee table, wing chair, dining table and two chairs. The bathroom had a dressing area and there was a second vanity/sink outside the bathroom. And...it was clean, clean, clean. We're looking forward to another visit!
