CW debuts new Woodlands Hotel & Suites

Combining the revolutionary experience of 18th-century history
with the comfort and style of 21st-century hotel accommodations,
the Colonial Williamsburg Company—Hospitality Group opened the first phase
of its new 300-room Woodlands Hotel & Suites Monday, Aug. 13.

The contemporary, three-story hotel will offer 96 suites and 204 guest
rooms, all accessed from secure, interior hallways. The hotel features
a spacious lobby finished in warm heart pine bathed in natural light from
cathedral ceiling skylights and a number of recreational options from
miniature golf and walking trails to swimming and horseshoes right outside
its doors.

Guest rooms at the Woodlands each have two full-size beds, a sitting
area with a table and two chairs, a comfortable lounge chair (that converts
to a single bed) and cable TV. Each suite has a lounging room with queen
sofa bed, desk and cable TV, as well as a convenience counter with small
refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffeemaker, and a separate bedroom
with king-size bed and second TV. Baths in all guest accommodations have
plentiful countertop space and vanity-style lighting.

Guests of the Woodlands Hotel & Suites can begin each day with a
bountiful continental breakfast buffet (included in the room rate) served
in the lobby area near the fireplace. For full-service dining the Cascades
Restaurant is just a short walk away, and in the planning stages for the
near future is a new family-friendly, 125-seat restaurant tucked along
the pedestrian promenade to the Visitor Center and across from the hotel

"We have designed a hotel that is perfectly suited to the family
vacation, couples on a getaway and conference groups, offering the highest
quality in moderately priced accommodations in an unparalleled scenic
and historic location," said Robert Jeremiah, vice president and
general manager of the Woodlands Hotel & Suites. "Although it
is a modern hotel, we have enhanced its ambience by using Colonial Williamsburg
signature items in the décor. It is a wonderful blend of contemporary
taste with colonial influences."
