Meetings are held to accomplish specified goals; and the choice of the venue or facility is vital in achieving these goals. The Williamsburg Inn, Williamsburg Lodge and the Woodlands Hotel and Suites – collectively the Colonial Williamsburg Hotels – are a great combination of conference and meeting hotels, set in a quaint small-town village atmosphere, where everything is located within a two-block stroll.
It’s a resort – two 18-hole and one nine-hole golf courses, one 20,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, four pools (one indoor), eight tennis courts, 50 unique and diverse shops and 20 dining choices from casual to gourmet. It’s a retreat – Providence Hall and adjacent guesthouses are located in secluded privacy. It’s a high-end-level meeting spot – the elegant Williamsburg Inn. It’s a national sales or large annual meeting location – the Williamsburg Lodge and conference center. Colonial Williamsburg Hotels provide a single solution for today’s complex meeting demands – all located in a charming village atmosphere.
Although the word “colonial” is part of the name, the location and its amenities are strictly 21st-century. Every detail today’s meeting attendees expect is planned and executed by Colonial Williamsburg hotel staff. The layout of the Lodge conference center (the largest of the three) allows ease of movement between sessions and provides ample opportunity for networking – in cozy alcoves, outdoor patios and spacious corridors filled with natural light.
Williamsburg is centrally located off interstate 64 between Richmond and Norfolk, Va., with 200 daily flights serving three airports – Richmond, Norfolk and Newport News/Williamsburg.
Centralized sales teams assist with booking any of the three hotels. Many contracts include sleeping rooms blocked in each of the hotels, taking full advantage of the price variety for the attendees and staff. The Inn and Lodge are located across the street from one another, and the Woodlands is a short drive on the Colonial Parkway via car or CW’s complimentary shuttle departing the Visitor Center with a stop at the entrance to the Lodge conference center.
Conference planners can expect a “yes” attitude from each and every Colonial Williamsburg hotel staff member. But, they may also notice the word “no” – no resort fees, no F&B minimums in the contract and no charge for Wifi.
