CW reaches out to government groups with "Government Rules" Package

Colonial Williamsburg’s “Government Rules” package provides a special government per diem rate of $101 for groups booking at least 10 sleeping rooms between April 1 and Aug. 31, and $79 between Sept. 1 and Dec. 21, 2005 (Option 1). For an additional $42 per person per day (Option 2), Colonial Williamsburg offers additional banquet meals based on current per diem and availability. Rates are based on single or double occupancy plus applicable taxes, are subject to availability and are not available over major holidays.

Combining the comfort and style of 21st-century accommodations with the revolutionary experience of 18th-century history, the Woodlands Hotel & Suites and the Woodlands Conference Center are ideal for meeting planners who book government groups. Conveniently located adjacent to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area, the Woodlands offers the highest quality in moderately priced accommodations in an unparalleled scenic and important location.

Two package options are available. Option 1 includes guest room and continental breakfast daily. Option 2 includes one banquet lunch and dinner and continental breakfast daily in the hotel lobby near the fireplace. Through Aug.31, groups that book 20 or more sleeping rooms at any one time will receive complimentary high-speed Internet access in their meeting rooms.

The Woodlands Hotel & Suites is the most recent property to join Colonial Williamsburg’s roster of five hotels. The contemporary, three-story, 300-room hotel offers 96 suites and 204 guest rooms. The Conference Center features 14,000 square feet of dedicated meeting space, including 11 meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate 280 for banquets.

Guest rooms at the Woodlands each have two full-size beds, a sitting area with a desk 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-sized bed and second TV. For full-service dining, HUZZAH!, a 125-seat restaurant, is located adjacent to the
hotel lobby.

Colonial Williamsburg Hotels recently won Meeting News magazine’s “2004 Planner’s Choice” award, chosen by more than 60,000 meeting, convention and incentive travel planners, and honoring excellence in meeting services and facilities.
