Westgate Historic Williamsburg Resort
Ranked #54 of 73 Hotels in Williamsburg
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed 1 June 2012

The one-bedroom condo is very small. The property was renovated from a hotel into condos, so ours was just two hotel rooms combined. This gives an awkward layout to the floorplan and placement of doors and light switches. The furniture and decor are first-rate. Didn't have much interaction with the staff, so I can't really comment on them. The desk clerks I spoke with were pleasant enough but not particulary helpful. The location of the property is very convenient to all the popular attractions and some good eating places (The Seafare & Plaza Azteca). There is a nicely equipped fitness room on the lower level with a scale so you can keep on eye on the lbs from all the good eating.

Room Tip: There are plans to build another building in the rear of the property. I would check on this before...

We really appreciate your feed back. The location of the Resort is within walking distance of the Historic Area and the College of William & Mary which is the second oldest college in the nation. The fitness center and the colonial décor are some of many great features of the Resort. There are many great restaurants close by and we highly recommend Plaza Azteca. Thank you for your comments.

Sincerely,
The Westgate Team

We appreciate your comment about the Historic Williamsburg Resort being the best Westgate Property. That is a high compliment considering the excellence of all of the Westgate Resorts properties. Besides Jamestown and Yorktown Virginia Beach, Richmond and Washington are easy day trips. Our staff is great! Please come back and visit us again.

Thank you,

We are owners within the Westgate properties. The Westgate experience is pretty standard from property to property. Staff are very pleasant and willing to help when you need it. Since we are owners, I wish we feel like we are owners. I have always felt that potential owners are treated with VIP service while current owners are treated like "regular" guests. This is probably more of a reflection on Westgate vs. this property. The beds are great. I wish the fake fireplace produced heat though.

I’m glad you had another pleasant stay at Westgate Resorts. Although each Westgate Resorts property has unique features customer service and the comfort of the bed are some of the many things that are standard at each property. The fireplace is actually real thank you for informing us of your issue. I see your point about the potential owners but we treat all of our guests as potential owners. We never know when a current owner wants to add another week to there quality vacation experience.


Thank you,

My high school girlfriends and I stayed at Westgate Historic Williamsburg for our 50th birthday. The staff was TERRIFIC!!! Best Ever!! Shanita, Brenda, Brynn, Chey, Nick, Amber, Lona, Donna (sales), Ron(sales), David (security) Such an outstanding crew!! Thanks to all of you!! (Shanita probably still knows which one is the oldest ;) And we still haven't 'marbled' our fingernails yet, Brynn ;)
We had a great time in Colonial Williamsburg. Our room was just a studio but it had just what we needed, since we weren't in the room much. The room had double beds, a kitchen area with stovetop and microwave and a full fridge. The outdoor pool and hot tub were available every night and it was quiet, day & night around the pool. There are more activities than what the Westgate site describes. There were options to borrow bikes, play beach volleyball, putting green and horseshoe pits. There is a small fitness centre and arcade in the basement of the main building. An activity sheet was put in the door every morning, which also included some day trips. There are lots of restaurants and stores very close and its only about 15 minute walk to Colonial Willamsburg. The hotel lobby and reception area is very welcoming for guests. It was such a terrific stay and truly made our birthday 'vacation' special. Definitely looking forward to another exchange to this Westgate location, just for the outstanding customer service and friendliness!!

Thank you for taking the time give us your feedback we use it make our Resort better! We have an excellent group of associates here at Westgate and we take a team approach to customer service.

As for the amenities you named them all....... there is a lot to do. Well almost all of them Table Tennis and Cornhole are also available.
