If you want to throw yourself whole-heartedly into the Williamsburg experience, or if you have a large group, or if you want something different or intimate, you might want to consider staying in one of the houses right in the heart of the Revolutionary City. And there are so many choices! Twenty-six buildings offer suites, single rooms, or, in some cases,   the entire house. You might reserve a room in an old tavern, or stay in a craftsman's shop, a kitchen outbuilding (no cooking required), or or one of the various-size residences that reflect all the people who lived here. The rooms vary widely in space, bedding, and fireplaces but descriptions of all the houses and room layouts are on the website. The appearance may be 18th Century, but the rooms are modern and comfortable (and that includes the mattresses). You will receive discount admission to Colonial Williamsburg and can charge tavern and shop bills to your room. Purchases from CW shops will be sent back to your rooms. The houses are located along the main street of the Colonial restored area; check in at the Williamsburg Inn, 136 E. Francis St.
