About the Williamsburg Lodge

Located in the heart of Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Lodge puts southern hospitality, comfort and relaxation in the forefront. Decorative elements of classic American style give character and charm to this unique hotel, and signature southern hospitality from the staff is a hallmark of every guest’s experience. Room décor is inspired by the collections of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, the first in the country dedicated to the works of self-taught artists. Soft bedspreads bear the design of 18th-century coverlets, and hand-painted lamps and throw pillows give each guest room a touch of southern comfort.

World-class dining options are available, with the lodge featuring two restaurants serving classic American cuisine with a contemporary southern and Chesapeake flair. The lodge is also located near the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg and the award-winning Robert Trent Jones Sr, and Rees Jones–designed Golden Horseshoe golf courses.
