Great hotel in a fabulous location. Minutes from colonial Williamsburg and short drive to Jamestown. Hotel was being renovated but stay was great. Staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Rooms are being updated so not fair to ding them. Large clean rooms with refrigerator and laundry on first floor. Would stay here again.

There were approximately 250 attendees there for a convention. Our room was on the 4th floor which meant there was walking involved to the meeting room. The hallways were well lit and we never felt unsafe when walking back and forth. And a little walking doesn't hurt anyone. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our group was provided...

I stayed here for a conference. Thank goodness it was only overnight. The beds are small, uncomfortable and so are the pillows. There was some sort of bug in our bathtub. The conference rooms were nice, but there was only wifi in the main conference room, not any of the others. The conferences were held in the extreme opposite wings...

Don't be misled- renovations aren't the only issue here. And it is clear that they are many, many months, if not years, away from completing the renovations. The place is absolutely huge with many long hallways...and virtually no guests. We were located so far from the makeshift check-in desk that I truly felt unsafe. I was not surprised to read...

The room was comfortable, spacious and clean. Nice salt water swimming pool and hot tub. There was some renovation going on in one section of the hotel that started my respiratory allergy. Nasal spray

My wife tells me I make friends everywhere I go. I found this little one in my bed last night. Needless to say, I checked out and won't be back. I have spent all day Sunday hot water washing everything I had in the room with me. Hopefully, none of my clothes, shoes or bags are ruined.
