Bottom Line

The three-pearl Hilton Garden Inn Williamsburg is a comfortable hotel that's convenient for tourists visiting areas attractions, but it isn't within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg. The lobby has some charming accents, and its 119 pleasant guest rooms are nicely equipped, with flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, microwaves, mini-fridges, and free basic Wi-Fi. The hotel offers a hot breakfast buffet for modest fee and a bar, plus evening room service is available from a local restaurant. Other highlights include an indoor pool and a fitness center, but both are on the small side. Travelers seeking a stay for a similar rate that comes with breakfast can consider Comfort Suites Bypass.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A lovely hotel with bright and cozy lobby for sightseeing families and some couples 

This hotel features a modern and vibrant lobby that’s typical of the Hilton Garden Inn chain. Laminate wood floors alternate between crimson-patterned carpet. High ceilings, banks of windows, and furniture upholstered in bright, cheerful hues make it a pleasant and inviting place. There’s plenty of space in the dining area, but it still gets congested at breakfast time when the hotel is full, particularly when groups are staying here. The hotel mostly draws families here for sightseeing, and some couples, too. 

Location

 Surrounded by restaurants, an eight-minute drive from Colonial Williamsburg 

Map of Hilton Garden Inn Williamsburg

The Hilton Garden Inn is located on Richmond Road, which runs south to downtown Williamsburg. It's too far to walk into town, but it's only a quick car ride away. The property is situated in a relatively quiet spot that’s set back off the road a bit, but there's a solid crop of restaurants that can be reached in a 15-minute walk or less. 

  • Four-minute walk to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum
  • Eight-minute drive to Colonial Williamsburg and College of William & Mary
  • 14-minute drive to Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport  
  • 16-minute drive to Water Country USA and Busch Gardens
  • 23-minute drive to Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown
  • 48-minute drive to Richmond International Airport
  • 70-minute drive to Virginia Beach

Rooms

Comfortable with traditional decor, plus coffeemakers, microwaves, and mini-fridges

These comfortable guest rooms have a warm glow, thanks to the rust and gold color palette that’s used in the diamond-pattern carpet, striped drapes, and upholstered armchairs. The walls are a soft gold, and traditional, reddish-brown wood furniture complements the overall look. Decor is rather subdued yet tasteful, and photos of flowers on walls add splashes of brighter colors. All units have Keurig coffeemakers, microwaves, mini-fridges, and 32-inch flat-screen TVs. Basic Wi-Fi is free, and premium-speed upgrades are available for a fee. 

Standard rooms offer plenty of space, as Kings and Double Queen have enough room for armchairs, small oval tables, and sizable desks with office chairs. Suites are available with separate seating areas that have sleeper sofas and additional flat-screen TVs. 

Bathrooms are done in a similar style, and have wide vanities and simple white tiling around the shower/tub combos. They come equipped with hairdryers and Neutrogena products. Units are generally quiet, but the views are nothing notable. 

Features

Indoor pool, on-site dining, and a 24-hour gym; fee for breakfast and high-speed Wi-Fi 

This hotel offers an attractive lineup of features. There's a hot breakfast buffet for a reasonable price that includes made-to-order omelets. The Garden Grill & Bar also is open each afternoon for bar service and a light-bites menu that includes flatbreads, burgers, salads, and appetizers, but there's no dinner offered. However, evening room service is available from the nearby Seafare restaurant, which has steaks and seafood. 

Travelers looking to save a bit on dining can purchase frozen entrees from the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry and microwave them in their rooms. The Pantry also sells sundries, snacks, soft drinks, beer, and Virginia wine. Each afternoon, there are free cookies, coffee, and tea in the lobby, and free USA Today newspapers are available on weekdays. 

The indoor pool is small, but it has an adjacent whirlpool and it’s housed in a bright and pleasant space with lots of windows and skylights. It's open 24 hours, as is the gym, but it's also small. It does offer a few free weights and a few pieces of Precor cardio and weight-training machines. 

The hotel’s meeting space can host up to 125 people, and the 24-hour business center has two computers and a printer. Other amenities include a guest laundry room, valet dry cleaning and laundry services, free basic Wi-Fi (high-speed is available for an extra fee), and free on-site parking.
