“Great First Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Stayed in a one bedroom suite. We liked that the bedroom had a door that closed so that early risers could go in a separate room to get ready or watch tv. We had two queen beds and then I think the suite had a sleeper sofa. (There is a 2 bedroom suite that has a kitchen table and looks nice too)

Beds were crisp, white, and room was clean. 4 pillows on each bed with the duvet-type bedding (not the old fashioned comforters that never get washed).

Quiet heating unit (amazing).
Indoor Pool was clean, hot tub was clean! Towels for pool area were provided. Great chairs for lounging outside, but it was too cold this time.

Had two meals in dining area. Both were delicious, however, our breakfast potatoes were too salty. That's my only negative feedback. I guess the lighting in the hotel room was a little dim, too, but thankfully we let the sun shine in.

I would definitely return. We felt like the staff took care of us and seemed to enjoy having us there! They were sociable and friendly.

Just spent a night in Williamsburg, VA and couldn't have been happier with my accommodations!
The room was crisp and clean and we loved the bedding with choices of pillows for anyone's taste. Soft, medium, hard. The front desk staff gave wonderful ideas for local restaurants in the historical district. We used one of the suggestions and had an exceptional meal. The hot tub was very relaxing at the end of the evening after a long car ride. Didn't have time to use the fitness room or swim in the pool, but will definitely allow more time for a longer stay at this hotel on our next trip to the area.

Room Tip: They have wonderful suites with frig and living room area to allow you to spread out.

My wife and I took a weekend trip to Williamsburg just to get away and fight "cabin fever" and just relax. Williamsburg Holiday Inn & Suites was just the ticket. They upgraded us to a huge suite for nothing! The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms and the entire property was very well kept, clean and look new. We will definitely be back.

We came to Williamsburg for a getaway weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. Originally wanted to stay at the Williamsburg historic Inn. The reviews for this hotel were so good that we decided to save the money and give this place a try. I highly recommend this hotel, but want to add that their pillows are dreadful and and I suggest bringing your own. Other than that,I could not have been more pleased.

Room Tip: Bring your pillow!

Our trip in feb 2013 was great. Josh the bartender was friendly and makes a fantastic hurricane! Jan at the front desk was so welcoming and had some great suggestions on places to go. We will definitely be regulars at this property. The king size suite was like an apartment and very clean. The steaks at the bar were better than even outback!

Wonderful front desk - Jan was right there when we thought there might be a mix up with our reservation - all taken care of - everyone so helpful - we got snowed in and the restaurant and room accomodations made it a great place to feel comfy and relaxed - can't say enough about the staff - we will be back!
