The Woodlands features wonderfully quiet, modern rooms with touches of Williamsburg style (like the blue toile and striped wallpaper). In late 2013 bedding and carpets were replaced, so everything feels spiffy and new (and the sleeps are terrific). The 96 suites have separate sitting room with pullout sofa and an extra sink to help with morning routines. But standard rooms are reasonably spacious, too, with two double beds and a pull-out chair that sleeps one (and therefore can be used by families).  All rooms have refrigerators; suites also have microwaves. The hotel is located next to the Visitor Center, so you can park your car and hop on the shuttle to the historic district or walk there—a bridge and walking path make it easy to reach the sights on foot. As an added bonus, guests here receive discount admission to Colonial Williamsburg, the ability to charge tavern and shop bills to their room, and delivery of purchases to the hotel. Note: Guests traveling with pets may stay at the Cascades motor lodge adjacent to Woodlands.
