Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers Choose Colonial Williamsburg’s Hotels As Top in the 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards

imageAs Colonial Williamsburg prepares to commemorate 75 years of unparalleled hospitality, The Williamsburg Inn, The Williamsburg Lodge and The Colonial Houses were honored to be recognized by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler in the 2011 Reader’s Choice Awards.
The Colonial Houses – Historic Lodging were named the Top Small Hotel in the United States, and The Williamsburg Inn and The Williamsburg Lodge ranked among the Top Resorts in the United States.
Condé Nast Traveler readers voted on the Official Colonial Williamsburg hotels in a number of categories, scoring the hotels based on their rooms and facilities, convenient location, exceptional service, and cuisine.

imageColonial Williamsburg’s Official Hotels blend comfortable accommodations with convenient access to the Historic Area, The Art Museums, The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, various dining and shopping options, and more. The hotels are favorites of leisure travelers, from families to couples, and extend exclusive program offerings to hotel guests. Top-notch customer service and attention to detail are consistent across the properties.
The intimate and elegant Williamsburg Inn was built as a home away from home for friends of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. Today, the hotel continues to welcome leisure guests and esteemed dignitaries from all over the world.
imageAt the folk-art inspired Williamsburg Lodge, the ambience of a southern family home prevails. One of the two original hotels envisioned by John D. Rockefeller, the property now consists of eight buildings, interconnected by sheltered walkways. Rooms are large and comfortably accommodate families.
The Colonial Houses (Historic Lodging) offer guests an immersive experience, providing the most convenient access to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. Located on Duke of Gloucester Street and on the adjacent side streets, these original and reconstructed 18th-century buildings are Colonial Williamsburg’s equivalent of oceanfront rooms.
