Wow! What a great resort!
Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we stayed in a Colonial House which was really atmospheric. Since there were 5 of us, we had to get two rooms (max occupancy is 4), so we had an entire two story house with a suite on each floor. The suites has in room coffee and small fridges (but not a mini bar).
The ground floor room had a fireplace, and the houseman will come and build a wood burning fireplace if requested. Room service set up a round table in front of the fire for us, and we started the day with a lovely breakfast.
We stayed there during Easter, and the gated garden – complete with well – provided a perfect setting for our Easter Egg hunt.
Being right in the middle of the colonial area is really cool, though being in such a nice hotel is a bit of a negative in that we spent perhaps too much time in the spa and at the pool instead of visiting the colonial sites.
The spa charges a $25 fee for a day pass to use the facilities (large whirlpool, sauna, ice shower in locker rooms) , but it is included with spa/salon services so my hubby and boys each got $30 haircuts and I got a $30 manicure.
There are two outdoor pools – a quiet one and family one - plus an indoor one in a solarium with a Jacuzzi. The landscaping is beautiful, and the bar service was attentive.
We had planned on spending our last day of our east coast trip in Richmond to finish up the traveling History lesson, but the Williamsburg Inn was so comfortable we couldn’t leave.
The room rates are expensive, but everything else is reasonable, e.g. no resort fees, free parking, and reasonable rates from room service.
