We stayed in the Chiswell-Bucktrout house just behind the Kings Head Tavern for two nights at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend. The building is wonderfully historic, as is the furniture although there are all the mod cons - A/C, TV etc. The location is extremely convenient, being just steps away from the Duke of Gloucester Street and the Capitol, and we found it very quiet, although being there on a weekend may have helped.
As well as the accommodation, we had the use of the concierge service at the Williamsburg Inn and I would definitely recommend visiting them - we got cut-price all-access passes as hotel guests and the concierge has tables on hold at all the historic restaurants which enabled us to get into Christianna Campbells and the Kings Head even though both were fully-booked. The concierge can also get tickets to the evening activities - we went to the witch trial which was very interesting.
