In 1937, John D. Rockefeller Jr. built the Williamsburg Inn, a five-star hotel adjacent to Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary. It is one of the nation's most distinguished hotels that has been host to U.S. presidents and heads of state, including Queen Elizabeth II in 1957 for Jamestown's 350th anniversary and in 2007 for Jamestown's 400th anniversary. It has a wonderful dining room, the Regency Room, three excellent golf courses and easy access to Colonial Williamsburg. The nearby Colonial Parkway provides short drives to historic Jamestown (west) and Yorktown (east). And the James River plantations, including Shirley and Berkeley and Sherwood Forest and Westover, are on Route 5 on the road to Richmond. For the second time in the last few years, we stayed in the same room, just off the main lobby. You can't ask for better bathroom facilities, including a huge shower and jacuzzi bath. Sleeping in the king-sized bed was an endorsement for relaxation at its best. Breakfast and dinner in the Regency Room was a plus, everything you would expect of a five-star resort. From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the front door by the bellmen (more than one) who took care of our luggage, we were wrapped in hospitality. The staff makes you feel like you are member of the Queen's entourage. When I asked a question of the concierge, she had the answer as quickly as it took me to walk from her office to my room. When you spend a lot of money for three days at a five-star hotel, you feel you are entitled to good service. And the Williamsburg Inn never disappoints.
