Editor’s Review of Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites

Editor’s Rating 4/5 There are so many hotels to choose from when planning a trip to Williamsburg that all the options can stress you out with their sheer abundance. But if your main priorities are finding a mid-range hotel for the family in historic Colonial Williamsburg that makes your stay and access to all the nearby attractions as effortless as possible, then Williamsburg Woodlands more than meets the bill.

The hotel is part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, a non-profit organization that has a total of six properties and many restaurants in the downtown historic area. And staying here entitles you to significant discounts on multi-day entry passes to Colonial Williamsburg.

Located right next to the town's official
... more Visitor's Center and a short walk (or free shuttle ride) to all the attractions and sites, Williamsburg Woodlands is the kind of place where you can arrive, park your car (in the free parking lot) and just leave the keys behind until the end of your stay. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, and you can choose from standard configurations with two double beds or one-bedroom suites that allow some separation between the main bedroom and living space.

When you're not out mingling with characters dressed in period costumes, dining in a candle-lit, 18th-century style tavern, or watching a Revolutionary-era re-enactment along the streets of Colonial Williamsburg, there's plenty to keep the whole family entertained at the hotel, too, including a heated outdoor swimming pool, free mini-golf, a playground and volleyball and racquet balls courts.

For a quick overnight stay or a long weekend in Williamsburg, this is an easy spot to settle in and enjoy. less

The three-story hotel has 300 guestrooms with just two different layout options fairly evenly split between standard rooms and suites, so deciding what sort of configuration you prefer just depends on your budget and your family's privacy desires.

Décor is standard in the rooms and suites -- simple shaker style wood furniture with classically printed wallpapers and bright bed coverings. Don't expect an overly modern look and you'll be satisfied.

There are elevators if you're staying on the second or third floor of the building, and when you book, you can specify if you'd prefer a courtyard or pool view (none of the rooms or suites have balconies or patios, which families with young kids often see as a good ... more thing). Families with young children often prefer staying on the ground floor for easy stroller access and the shortest walk to the pool and reception area.

Connecting standard rooms are available, but the suites do not connect. There are no DVD players in the rooms and they aren't available to rent either, so if your kids require them then be sure to tote your portable devices along.

Free Wi-Fi is available in all accommodations.

Woodlands Standard
Standard hotel rooms can accommodate up to five people with two double beds and a chair that pulls out into a twin bed for sleeping an additional person. Rollaways are not available. If you're traveling with small children, you can request a playard for no additional charge. The standard rooms are 309 square feet, so there's plenty of room to stretch out, and there's a sitting area with a small table, flat-screen TV and a mini-fridge for storing snacks, bottles and the like. Coffeemakers are standard throughout.

Woodlands Suites
If you'd like a bit more separation when it comes to sleeping space between the adults and kids, then consider booking one of the hotel's suites. They are 418 square feet, with a closed-off bedroom with one king bed and its own TV that opens into a living room with a queen sofa bed. You can fit four people in suites, and the option to close off the room makes it easy to put kids to sleep early and enjoy alone time. Suites have the additional advantage of a microwave and wet bar in addition to the mini-fridge and coffeemaker, so you have a little more flexibility when it comes to preparing simple meals in. less
