My husband and I as well as a number of friends booked this hotel for a Marriage Retreat Weekend that we were attending. I loved the room, great little 'zones' that let us spread out for the various things we wanted to do in the room (quick work on the laptop, a snack , watch TV in bed). Most notably, the vanity/sink is outside the bathroom. This let me freshen up before dinner, and do my makeup before church while my husband showered! I wish out master suite at home was so well-planned (lol). We'd definitely book again. See ya next year!

We have traveled to Williamsburg for 3 years in a row now to visit Christmas Town at Busch Gardens. The past two years we stayed at the Holiday Inn at Historic Gateway. This year, when booking, we saw that location had fallen to #13, whereas this location (Busch Gardens area) had shot up to #4. So we thought to make a switch. WORST. DECISION. EVER. I will start by saying that while this may normally be a solid hotel, it seems they must have planned quite poorly for the number of people staying there at this time. Both mornings we were there, the breakfast area was overcrowded, with long lines, no seats, and lots of food shortages. This left our kids (ages 4 and 1) unhappy, hungry, and quite uncomfortable. If a hotel sees such a high number of people staying, I'd imagine they'd make adequate preparations for amounts of food, and to possibly add some temporary/folding tables/chairs to accommodate their guests. Also, our room received NO SERVICE. We left our room at 11 am, and returned at 10:30 pm, and to our dismay the beds were not made, the bathroom was not serviced, and we were left short on towels. Another note, we had requested a crib when we made the reservation, however it took 2 calls and a stop by the front desk after we arrived to get the crib. Even after multiple complains, the staff/management made no attempts to compensate or make the situation right. All in all this was a VERY subpar stay, and we will be returning to the other Williamsburg location next year.

Thank you for taking your time to comment about your recent stay. I can certainly understand how you feel as I may feel the same way when I travel with my family and find similar issues. I apologize to you and your family for the less than excellent stay. Unfortunately the hotel was much busier than we expected during the last days of the year and in hindsight, we could have done much better in some areas of the hotel - specifically breakfast as you mention. We were able to make some changes as the weekend moved on, but that was too late for some of the service failures you experienced during your stay. Again I apologize and most importantly thank you for the feedback. We are always striving to uphold our commitment to providing a memorable experience with exceptional service. We hope to have an opportunity to not only meet your expectations but to exceed them. Have a Happy New Year and hopefully we will see you again!

Booked this hotel based on reviews and was not disappointed. It was sparkling clean from lobby, to room to breakfast area. Was visiting Colonial Williamsburg and arrived late. The staff were friendly and the decorations lovely. The R Watkins toiletries were a treat, I will be checking amazon to buy. Breakfast was delicious. Overall stay was wonderful and rates super reasonable.
