We truly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Inn. Everything was perfect from the moment we have arrived. This is very beautiful hotel with euqally beautifully decorated rooms and common areas. The decor reflects the good taste of the guests that stay in it. There is no other hotel of the same class in the entire area - period. We loved our suite and it was a great feeling to come back to it after long hot days of visiting the many great places at the Colonial Williamsburg. Our bedroom is decorated in very beautiful classic colonial style with strong European influences. The relaxing color palete was just perfect. The lobby was plesently furnished with fine furniture and draperies of the highest taste.
I can only compare this hotel to the best hotels that we have stayed in.
If you are for a short overnight stay you might want to opt for less expensive and yet equally beautiful room rather then a suite probably, but if you are staying for more then couple nights then suite is definitely a way to go. We were very happy with the suite, but this is what we usually reserve if possible as a family with a child.
Room service was excellent! Fast, courtous, perfect. Breakfast tray always looked picture perfect.
The themed china and silverware were just a fine detail that added to the good feeling.
On-site restaurant is superb. This is the finest dinning in it's finest form. It was more sophisticated food and service wise then our other local favorite - The King's Arms Tovern that we enjoyed for the character and unique dishes of the past.
We plan to come back to Williamsburg again and we definitely are going ot stay at the Inn.
Having a chance to see other hotels operated by the Collonial Williamsburg company - which manages the Inn - we have checked them by stopping by and walking the common areas but those hotels were not anywhere near the high class of the Inn. It is worth every penny.
This is one of those moments when you know that you are not paying only for the night sleep away from home, you are paying for memories.
P.S. Since I have visited other hotels maybe a word to those who are interested or can't book the Inn for this or other reason.. If I had to settle for second option for some reason I would probably go with the Williamsburg Lodge that has some sens of style and history to it however the rooms were bit too simplistic and overall decor was indeed lodge-like. Rooms are decorated more less in Amish/Shaker style. It lacks certain class if that is what you are looking for.
The other two hotels that were operated by the same company are on rather far and low end and they might be perfect for tight budget trip, might be good for families with children or someone who is looking for savings. However if you are after experience then the Inn is the only way to go in my humble opinion. I would highly recommend to stop by and check it out if you are staying elswhere as you might like to choose it for your future trips.
We did get our gas at the off immediate Historic Williamsburg area where all other hotels are located and they are not only far from all the action but they are very plain and very ordinary.
They are in very "blah" highway area.
