The spirited sounds of fife-and-drum bring 18th-century America to life in Colonial Williamsburg, a meticulously restored and re-created Revolutionary War city. Our Holiday Inn® Williamsburg hotels are close to the colonial Virginia capital as well as Busch Gardens amusement park and the Yorktown Battlefield.
The streets of this living-history museum bustle with the business of 18th-century life. In the 300-acre Historic Area, you'll rub shoulders with men in powdered wigs and ladies in colonial garb as horse-drawn carriages clip-clop by. Iron is forged the 200-year-old way at the Blacksmith Shop and books are crafted in painstaking colonial fashion at the Printing Office. At the end of Duke of Gloucester Street, the reconstructed Capitol is topped with a Union Flag, while formal gardens of clipped topiary surround the elegant Governor's Palace. Entry to Colonial Williamsburg is free for children 5 and under, and youths 6-17 get discounted passes. Or treat the whole family to an afternoon of 21st-century rides at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. From our Williamsburg hotels, it's easy to visit Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America, and the Yorktown Battlefield-where George Washington slept in a tent now displayed under hermetically sealed glass.
Dine in the candlelit ambience of a restored colonial tavern. At Kings Arms, Chownings or Shields taverns, you can enjoy the same hearty foods that sustained the founding fathers. Savor meat pies or braised venison, washed down with a tankard of ale. Stay at our Williamsburg hotels and bring history home with you, from reproduction jewelry to heirloom seeds from the colonial nursery. Or hit the city's numerous outlet shops for 21st-century bargains.
You don't need a time machine to relive the past. Just book a stay in our Williamsburg hotels and hit the cobblestoned streets for a thrilling journey to colonial America.

Upon arrival and departure was asked the reason for our stay. When told it was for a funeral each staff member offered their sympathy. The arrival clerk informed us that he would be on duty until[More] 11:00 and that we should call him if he could be of any service to us.[Less]
Comfortable bed and great service
The staff members are the best. I am recommending my friends stay here during the Hampton Jazz Fest in June on 2017.[Less]
The hotel itself was great. Breakfast at the hotel was terrible so if you go make sure you bring or eat out. I traveled 7 hours to get there with an infant who was screaming the last hour of our trip[More] and all we wanted to do was check in get him fed. Upon checking in you have to go across the room to another counter to get a parking pass and that's where they hit you with come check out being an owner at the vacation club. I explained to her that I had a screaming infant in the car and I really had to go. That wasn't sufficient for her. Finally I said did you hear me say I have been traveling 7 hours and I have a screaming baby in the car I just want to get to my room. I really don't mind the sales aspect since I am in sales myself but like everything else there is a right time and a wrong time and that time was not the right time. Maybe if she listened to the clues and said do you mind if we contact you tomorrow to discuss options I would have been more open to listening. Food for thought...[Less]
