The Most Upscale Hotel in Williamsbug

by written on May 20, 2007

I couldn't afford to stay here. But if you want luxury, and are willing to spend $300 or more per night, then this should be your first choice. THIS is living in style.

Unique Quality: The location is ideal; everything in the town is within a ten-minute walk. It's also a very beautiful building. It's the kind of place where I dream of staying someday.

Directions: In the heart of colonial Williamsburg. Take I-64 to exit 238, follow the signs to the town.

Colonial Luxury with Modern Amenities

I stayed here with my parents and younger sister(who was 19 at the time) in mid July last year(2006), while the room we stayed in wasn't the main building, but a building further back, the facilities were still excellent. We were treated as if we were royalty and the staff there was very nice and friendly. When I come back down here on my own, I am most definitely going to stay here again. The price is high for some, hell, even most people, but in the end it's well worth it. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone I knew.

Unique Quality: The landscaping on the property is beautiful and it includes a pond that you can sit near or stand near and admire. There were some bicycles that you could rent if you wanted to ride them throughout the area of Williamsburg for a fee, but I'm not sure if they'll still have them. There is a spa and fitness center there, along with a Tennis court where you could get some instruction for a fee. There is a world renowned golf course that is popular amongst many of the people who visit with a country club(I believe it's called the Golden Horseshoe)as well. There's also a croquet ground if you want to try something completely different. There is also a pool complete with a pool house that you are more than welcome to swim at.

If you wish to stay in the best that Williamsburg has to offer, then, by all means, stay at the Williamsburg Inn. It is known for its superb cuisine, attentive service, and wonderful rooms. It's received the Mobil Travel Guide's highest rating along with the prestigious Five-Star Award.

If you stay here, you will know that you are staying where people such as Queen Elizabeth, Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, and Ronald W. Reagan have also stayed.

The exterior is white brick so it fits right in with the colonial buildings in the Historic Area. Regency style (popular in the early 1900th Century) is used inside, and reminds one of a Virginia country estate. There are terraces which overlook the countryside, and they are a perfect location for relaxation.

The rooms are quite large with two 4-poster beds, entertainment center, desk, several chairs, and a lovely bathroom. Each room has sliding doors out to the private terrace or balcony.

Unique Quality: The Regency Dining Room is gracefully elegant and boasts of a cosmopolitan cuisine with a European-trained chef. In the Regency Lounge, you can order beverages and light food services. Oh, yes, there is entertainment nightly in this lounge.

Tea is served each day in the East Lounge.
They offer many outdoor activities such as Lawn Bowling, croquet, jogging, tennis, swimming, and 3 challenging golf courses are located right next door.

There are four Har-Tru and four all-weather courts adkacemt tpt je east lawn; there is also a tennis shop. The golf courses are Golden Horseshoe Gold Course (Par 71 championship) and Spotswood (Par 321 Executive Course), and the newer Golden Horseshoe Green Course (Par 72 18-hole). There's a practice range and two Clubhouses. Light meals and beverages are served in the Clubhouse Grill.

The Tazewell Club Fitness Center has an indoor lap pool as well as exercies rooms, steam, sauna, and whirlpool.

Expensive, But Worth It!

It's my opinion that this is th eonly way to stay if you visit Williamsburg.

You actually stay in colonial restored houses throughout the town in different locations. One time we stayed on the second floor of a colonial home right on the main street. You could see Chowning's Tavern right across the street. At night we would walk down the candle lit street after dinner there and retire as if we were residents from 200 years back.

The second time we stayed in an outbuilding of a colonial home. It was a stang alone building that used to be used for the laundry. It was about the size of a hotel room with a bath, closet, queen size bed and t.v.. The building was in the back yard of a colonial home, right across the pebbled street from the Williamsburg Inn.

Unique Quality: The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has 77 rooms in the Historic Area in its Colonial Houses. They furnished the rooms with 18th-century antiques and reproductionssuch as canopied beds, fireplaces, and some have beautiful gardens.

Many of rooms are former laundries, workshops, small homes and stand-alone kitchens that have been converted into one- and two-bedroom bungalows. Others are rooms in taverns, some of which have as many as 16 units.

Also note, (like in my first tavern room), some rooms are tiny, and not all have private bathrooms, so be sure to specify you want a room with a bathroom . Also, there are some units close to Francis Street, so traffic noise can easily penetrate the thin wooden walls.

Rates range from $185 to $525. The office for checking in is on Colonial Street near the entrance to the Williamsburg Inn.

Brace yourself........$450-$850 per night, but worth every penny. :)

Unique Quality: This is not for the faint of heart or checkbook. This hotel is a four star resort which overlooks the Golden Horseshoe Golf Corse and Country Club. The rooms are magnificent (Smallest is over 550 square feet). The rooms are equiped with all top quality amenities. The staff will wait hand on foot for you. There is a restauraunt called the Regency Room which is a 5 star dining room (nicest in Williamsburg), fintess facilities and full 24hr concierge service.
