A winner of both Booking.com and Tripadvisor’s Certificate of Excellence, this hotel is ideal for exploring one of America’s premier historical towns.
City | History & culture
Westgate is perfectly positioned within minutes of Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Watercountry USA. Its 18th century state capital status has been realised once more in living museums complete with original buildings and taverns, costumed townsfolk performing colonial jobs and speeches from historical figures, including Thomas Jefferson. Call into authentic smithies as you explore the district on hire bikes from the hotel’s front desk or via a complimentary shuttle bus.
Accommodation ranges from cosy Studios to two-bedroom Villas, all of which are period-specific. Think custom wooden headboards, regal red drapes and historic prints on the walls. Surprisingly spacious Studios – larger than the average Williamsburg hotel room – feature kitchenettes while Villas come with queen sleeper sofas, fireplaces and fully equipped kitchens. All rooms are en suite with jetted bathtubs and WiFi access available for a small, added cost.
With functional kitchenettes in the Studios and full-sized kitchens in the Villas, many guests opt to eat in making use of the nearby shops. Guests inspired by Colonial Williamsburg may wish to cook up a pioneer meal, with museum staff happy to advise. Alternatively, there’s a barbecue area near the beach volleyball court for an all-American cookout. There are also multiple restaurants nearby with the fresh delights of Waypoint Seafood and Grill a highlight.
For family travellers, there’s a whole host of activities designed to entertain. Play a round of horseshoes, drop the kids off at the playground or let them at the classic video games of the Games Room. For exertion of your own, there’s the fitness centre; complete with premium cardio and weight training equipment, it’s open 24 hours a day. The hotel also sits on some beautifully landscaped gardens making for enjoyable walks while the historic centre can be reached on a tree-lined stroll.
