I used to think "hunting lodge" when I stayed at the Williamsburg Lodge. But after a drastic renovation, it's now more of a charming country estate, though it still features handsome pieces of folk art in the public areas. Rooms will take you back in time, in a good way. My favorites are the superior rooms, which have a charm all their own, thanks to the rustic paneling, wood floors, and Shaker-like furniture. Other rooms are more colonial in their styling, and come in a number of configurations (double doubles, king rooms, suites, you name it). In 2014, Keurig coffeemakers were added (for those who can't wait until they get to the complimentary breakfast). The remodeled restaurant, Traditions, is a solid place to dine, featuring local produce and Virginia wines.  Guests receive discount admission to Colonial Williamsburg, and can charge tavern and shop bills to their room. Purchases from shops in CW can be delivered to the lodge.
