Colonial charm with welcoming interiors and beautiful grounds

Playing off its proximity to Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg Lodge features typical colonial-style decor in its interiors. Expect to see oil paintings, antique furniture, wooden walls, and quirky antique decor pieces. While the building isn't historic, the interiors transport you back into the old American colonial-period. The red face-brick building is surrounded by beautiful gardens of lush lawns, fountains, walkways, and a collection of small bushes and large green trees. Inside, the lobby is a large, open space with antique leather sofas, large patterned carpets, wooden furniture, and antique decor. The on-site Traditions restaurant features a wide range of artifacts on display and an eclectic collection of furniture. Sweet Tea & Barley, on the other hand, is more of an upmarket restaurant, with a sophisticated look and feel. This hotel offers a lovely experience in Colonial Williamsburg, attracting a mixture of both leisure and business travelers.


Situated within a five-minute walk from the Williamsburg Historic District

Located in the heart of the historical Colonial Williamsburg, the hotel offers easy access to many of the area's attractions. The hotel offers a free shuttle around the perimeter of the Revolutionary City. The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg is right across the street from the hotel and the Williamsburg Historic District is just five minutes by foot. There are a few restaurants and shops located within the Historic District. The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club Gold Course is a two-minute walk and Williamsburg Inn Tennis Club is a nine-minute walk. The College of William & Mary is a 20-minute walk or four-minute drive from the hotel. It's a 12-minute drive to both Busch Gardens and Water Country. Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport is 25 minutes by car.


Colonial-style rooms with flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers; some have mini-fridges

Each of the 323 guest rooms at Williamsburg Lodge were designed with inspiration from the Williamsburg's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. Decor includes traditional colonial-period elements: oil paintings, hand-painted lamps, traditional American bedspreads, antique furniture, a rocking chair, and an old-fashioned leather chair in the corner of the room. The rooms are cozy and welcoming, combining traditional decor with a decent selection of modern comforts. All rooms include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, tea- and coffee-making facilities, telephones, desks, safes, iron and ironing boards, and free Wi-Fi -- some rooms include a mini-fridge.
