Williamsburg Inn is a hotel that brings a touch of European-style opulence to the heart of American history. Located in Colonial Williamsburg, guests are poised to travel back in time while remaining surrounded by every modern comfort.
Throughout the 1920s, philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr. worked hand in hand with Williamsburg’s locals to finance the preservation of several colonial-era buildings. In 1937, Rockefeller conceived Williamsburg Inn, a hotel that he believed would be among the finest in the United States and would continue to support the preservation of historic Williamsburg. His vision has carried into today, and this celebrated member of Historic Hotels of America continues to dazzle.
Williamsburg Inn is a place that deftly transcends several eras and themes. Its British-inspired confines are at the doorstep of one of America’s most famous Revolutionary War sites. Its splendid 19th-century Regency decor graces a 20th-century floorplan, all enhanced by the latest in 21st-century amenities expected by discerning travelers. Here, there is the unmistakable air of Southern hospitality married with the refined ease of an English countryside estate.
The 62 rooms and suites have been enlarged from their original size and fitted with spectacular marble en-suite baths. Double vanities, separate tubs, and indulgent Floris of London bath amenities come standard. Through the windows framed by heavy custom drapes, observe either the Golden Horseshoe Golf Course or the Historic Area of Williamsburg. An additional 43 rooms are also available in the Providence Hall Wings.
Behind its alabaster facade and Neoclassical architecture, rich interiors retain the elegance of Rockefeller’s imagination. The original furnishings have been refurbished to perfection, and the custom chandeliers in the common areas refinished to shine overhead. Williamsburg Inn is known for its famous afternoon tea service, and the Regency Room features a varied seasonal menu of treats like lobster bisque, smoked duck confit, and crab cakes.
Next door to Williamsburg Inn, American history comes to life—literally. Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area is a live interpretation of life in colonial America featuring original and reconstructed structures from the country’s infancy. Reenactors roam the streets in period garb, populating the town within a town to utter accuracy. At any time of day you can find residents driving horse-drawn carts, red coats and militia on patrol, and lamplighters illuminating the streets after sunset.Request Information
