We stayed at Providence Hall in March. We were on the upper floor and had a balcony that faced the duck pond. The room is huge and comfortable, as well as being well appointed. It is so quiet and peaceful. We sat each night on the balcony listening to the frogs and ducks. This without a doubt is a special...

We stayed at the Providence Hall Guesthouses in mid November. You check in at the Williamsburg Hotel. The staff was most welcoming and excellent. Guest services assisted us with tickets to special programs and gave us tips that were most helpful during our visit. They were aware that we were celebrating an anniversary and when we arrived in our room,...

We stayed here for a few nights on a road trip through VA. The best part was the location and walking access to the village. We opted for the breakfast included that was served at the grand Inn. This was pure Williamsburg luxury. The dining room served an excellent, high-end buffet with superb service. However the rooms at the guesthouse...

We were celebrating our anniversary and stayed for the weekend through the Couples Getaway Package. So glad we chose Providence Hall! Our room was on the second floor, facing the woods and pond, with a nice balcony. Lots of room and loved the two sinks and area to dress. Perfect for a couple. Breakfast from The Inn was included in...

If my sources are correct, this building was originally put together for business conferences back when business travel was posh. Its kind of late "Mad Men". Hence most of the rooms "convert" to suites so the second room could be used for entertaining, there are 2 HUGE conference rooms etc etc. The architecture hasn't aged well and the outside isn't...

The Providence Hall Guesthouses are, well, strange. They aren't guesthouses as the name suggests but rather just aging hotel rooms. The couple of buildings are a bizarre little "addition/expansion" of the Inn and at best are an afterthought. The first thing one notices is the styling: modern, concrete or some similar siding, flat roofs, vertical windows, glass doors, (and heavy...

Recently stayed during the Fourth of July for two nights. For the price it is just not worth it at all. pros- within walking distance to a lot of attractions. Cons- the rest! The building reminded me of a 60-70's era dentist office. The entire place smelled damp and moldy. The building is old, not attractive and not in good...

The room was very spacious, containing both a king-sized bed and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. The bed was quite comfortable, but I found the pillows to be a bit too soft. The sheets were soft and comfortable though the bed only had a blanket and a bedspread, not a comforter. There was also a nice patio/porch off the room that...

Stayed at Providence Hall November 13-15, 2014 while in the area to run the Richmond Marathon. Beautiful, secluded setting nestled in the woods. First class accommodations, large comfortable room within walking distance to great restaurants in colonial village. Also had great time at spa post race to rejuvenate. I'll be back in late February to run the colonial William and...
