Marriott's Manor Club at Ford's Colony
Ranked #3 of 73 Hotels in Williamsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 8, 2005

We just returned from a week at the Marriott Manor Club and loved the resort. We were there off-season (10/29-11/5) so did not get to enjoy the pool, but we walked the entire grounds and everything looked inviting and well-kept. It's located on a golf course (though neither of us are golfers) so the views are lovely.

We stayed in the older part of the resort and contrary to some of the reviews I've read here, we found it to be quite nice. We walked through the new section and it appeared too hotel-ish for our taste - long corridors with door after door. The older part has more of a "manor" feel to it w/o looking or feeling old and tired. As you can see from the pictures, it's quite well-kept.

The only thing I would have changed is to have a bit more thickness in the sheets and blankets. We had a hard time getting the thermostat set to our likeness and found ourselves chilly often at night. A bit thicker blanket would have solved things!

The only reason I gave this an "above average" rather than an "excellent" is because we didn't get to check out all the amenities so there are some things I just can't speak to. But as usual, we are very pleased with the Marriott. They've yet to let us down!!

visited week of August 27th - immaculate site and facilities within Ford's Colony - a little tough finding the first time. We also asked for a specific unit before arriving and were told no problem. We arrived on Saturday and were told we did not get the unit we wanted since the computer selects the room inventories and they could not change it since the resort was completely booked. The front desk even saw the note of my request recorded but said there was nothing they could do. Other than the check-in issue the resort is first class with golf, pool and rooms. Manor club is near the 2 big parks Busch Gardens and Water PArk USA so getting around was not an issue.

We exchanged our timeshare to the Marriott Manor Club at Ford's Colony the week of August 20-27, 2005. When we walked into our condo in the Berkeley Manor building our kids thought we were rich. It was much larger than I expected, I'm guessing it was 1600 sf. It had 2BR/2B, a gas fireplace, whirlpool tub, screened in porch, huge kitchen w/utensils, full size washer and dryer, and looked out on the tee box for one of the holes of the golf course. The condo was spotless. The landscaping was very nice as well. There were benches in a garden area with a tranquil fountain in front of the building.

The complex had 4 pools (2 large outdoor, 1 large indoor, and 1 kiddie pool), 3 hot tubs (2 outdoor and 1 indoor), 4 tennis courts, a small children's play ground with equipment, conceirge services, spa, a "theater", an activity center, game room (video games, pinbal, fooze ball, air hockey, and pool), and 54 holes of golf. There were planned activities every day for several different age groups. Some examples were bike rides, tye-die shirt making, movies, ice cream socials, and Texas Hold-em poker. We spent most of our days at Busch Gardens and Water Country USA so we didn't take advantage of many of the onsite activiites. We got some ice cream and watched a movie.

There are two sections to the Manor Club. The section where we stayed has more of a colonial look and appeared to be the original, Phase 1 section. The indoor pool, an outdoor pool, and two hot tubs, spa were here. This is also where the front desk, concierge, spa, Marketplace store, game room, and "theater" are located. There is a newer, Phase 2 section of condos across the street. The tennis courts, the largest of the pools, kiddie pool, play area and activity center are located here. There may be more but we just went to the pool there once.

As has been noted before, the Manor Club is located in Ford's Colony, a residential area, and can be easy to miss. When driving west on Longhill Road from Highway 199, use the Williamsburg Montessori School on the right as your landmark. The entrance to Ford's Colony is the next left, ~.25 mile. Then, just follow the directions on the Marriott web site and exit off the circle onto St. Andrews Drive. Even with road construction underway on Highway 199, it only took us ~15 minutes to get to the theme park gates. Colonial Williamsburg was closer but not sure how long it would take to get there since we didn't go. For us the short drive was worth the spacious accommodations and relative calm of the resort compared to hotels all along Richmond Road. You're still only 2 miles to all the shopping and restaurants on Richmond Road.
