This Regency-style hotel was built in 1937 when Williamsburg was still being restored and it has hosted royalty and world powers. It treats all of its guests royally, too. The style is a little more ornate than the rest of Colonial Williamsburg: a few more tassels, a little more gilt, rich colors and patterns. Amenities—spa, 45-hole Golden Horseshoe golf course, bar, and restaurants—are luxe. The 62 rooms come in five styles, each with its own personality. Standard rooms are designated "deluxe" and come with two queen beds. "Superior" rooms have one king bed. "Luxury" rooms really are that, featuring a  king bed and fireplace. Junior suites are ideal for families as they have a king bed in one room and a sleep sofa in the separate sitting area. The seven resort suites are the most luxurious, each with different types of beds and other extras, so if you have your heart set on a canopy bed or fireplace, request it (the staff will take care of lighting the fire). As with all Colonial Williamsburg hotels, guests have extra benefits: discounted admission tickets, preferred reservations for dining, and a shopping service that will deliver your packages from official Williamsburg shops.
