Our experience echoed those of most of the other reviewers. Staying in one of these homes or tavern rooms immerses you in the ambience of Colonial Williamsburg. Our room in the Market Square Tavern was very spacious, clean and tidy, with a modern bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, and the tavern was very quiet. The central location is excellent. And you can't avoid the history - Thomas Jefferson lived in this very building while studying law.
Contrary to a previous review, you can choose your room, I think you just have to do so well in advance (almost a year ahead for us). After studying the floor plans and reading TripAdvisor reviews, I requested and received an upstairs room overlooking Duke of Gloucester Street. If you get a chance, don't pass up the opportunity to stay in one of these homes or tavern rooms.
