Anytime we visit Williamsburg we always stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. The modern rooms are clean and comfortable and have all the in-room amenities you would expect from a Hilton hotel. Although the swimming pool is small, it is indoors and heated so we can take a dip in any season. The hotel is within walking distance from some good restaurants and cute stores. I have found the staff to be friendly and I love the 24 hour pantry for a midnight snack. It is only about a mile from the visitor center so in the busy summer months, we drive to the visitor center's large parking lot and take the bus to the historic area. We have stayed at several of the hotels in the historic area and think that the Hilton Garden Inn is a much better value. We have paid as little at $80/night to as much as $130/night. The same room in the historic area would cost over $200/night.
