The great state of Virginia offers travelers a treasure trove of American history, beautiful landscapes, and cultural traditions. One very special destination that appeals to all ages is Colonial Williamsburg. While the living history of this Revolutionary city is the main draw, staying in one of the Colonial Williamsburg Resorts will enhance your whole experience.
Colonial Williamsburg Resorts Exclusive Amenities
Youâ€™ll enjoy many exclusive benefits as a guest of any of the Colonial Williamsburg Resorts. Youâ€™ll receive admission discounts for tickets and passes to the Revolutionary City. As you might expect, an 18th-century town isnâ€™t equipped for 21st-century vehicles, so complimentary parking at the resort and free shuttle service to the perimeter of the historic district is included in your stay.
All guests have access to the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, one of the top public courses in the U.S., as well as the Williamsburg Inn Tennis Club. You may also enjoy Signature Experiences (fee) at the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, salon services, daily fitness classes, and access to indoor and outdoor pools.
As a guest of Colonial Williamsburg Resorts, youâ€™re treated with VIP status. Preferred reservations are extended for dining, the spa, golf, and tennis. For your convenience, any purchases you make at the shops in the historic district can be delivered to your hotel free of charge. Colonial Williamsburg Resorts, with the exception of the historic houses, are dog-friendly, so Fido can come along on the family vacation, too.
Williamsburg Inn â€“ Iconic Luxury
The Williamsburg Inn is an elegant and sophisticated resort fit for the most discerning travelers. It was recently named as one of the Worldâ€™s Most Luxurious Hotels by Forbes Travel Guide. Redesigned rooms and themed suites reflect an impressive Regency Style and tasteful event space is perfect for chic weddings or upscale meetings.
Exceptional service begins with complimentary valet service and sparkling wine in your room and continues throughout your stay.

Top tier tennis facilities of the Williamsburg Tennis Club are on site. Travel Maestro tip: Perfect for couples, culinary experiences, celebrations, business events, golf, and tennis.
Williamsburg Lodge â€“ Autograph Collection

Taste true Southern hospitality as you dine on comfort food with a modern twist in the casual restaurants, Lobby Lounge or outside patio. Or maybe youâ€™ll create your own culinary masterpiece in the Taste Studio, a full-service demonstration kitchen hosting classes, tastings, and demonstrations. Travel Maestro tip: Perfect for extended families, couples, culinary experiences, golf, spa and wellness.
Colonial Houses â€“ Historic Lodging
Time travel back to Colonial America when you stay in the historic homes of Colonial Williamsburg Resorts. More than 20 authentic buildings located throughout the living history district offer accommodations in meticulously reproduced period furnishings but with the amenities of the modern age.
Several accommodations are in 18th-century kitchens, which were detached from the main houses to reduce the risk of fire. Brick House Tavern has 16 rooms (each with full bath) in the original inn style. Or in the Ewing House, you can stay in a romantic first-floor suite with a queen canopy bed and a sitting room with fireplace. Other historic buildings offer various combinations of twin and double beds, trundles, day beds, connecting rooms, private entrances, and multiple floors. Travel Maestro tip: Perfect for history buffs, romantics, and children learning about Colonial history.
Williamsburg Woodlands â€“ Comfort & Convenience
Centrally located in a wooded area next to the Colonial Williamsburg Visitorâ€™s Center, the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites makes unforgettable family vacations easier than ever. Kids have their own check-in area with arts and crafts and activities. Once you get settled, check out the Fun Zone (open Fatherâ€™s Day to Labor Day) with a playground, mini-golf, table tennis, and shuffleboard. And during summer, the Splash Park at the Williamsburg Spa (fee) is a great place to cool down.
Families enjoy connecting rooms or suites, vending machines on each floor, and coin-operated laundry on site. Breakfast is included and the Huzzah! BBQ Grille offers family-friendly dining and a variety of micro-brews for adults. Child care is available. Travel Maestro tip: Perfect for families with children.
