Historical Traveler Reviews Fort Magruder Hotel Williamsburg
Our double room had a bathroom that had no ventiliation whatsoever!!!!!
The large vanity light did not work in the bathroom area. The thermostat did not work. We set the thermostat and the room temp never went below 75 degrees. There was a humidifier in the bedroom but the suite area (which we did not even know we were getting) did not have one, had mold growing on the wallpaper and some wallpaper was buckling off the wall. We were compt our room and made an offer to move to another room but it involved too much with a little one. Unfortunately, to add insult to injury, the power went out the second night and we only had auxiliary lighting, no elevator or air for about an hour. The decorations were beautiful and up to date but a lot more work needs to go into this facility!!!
Fantastico per famiglie
Questo hotel è fantastico per famiglie. I miei bambini hanno apprezzato molto il tema storico. La posizione dell'hotel è semplicemente favolosa. Se cercate un posto per una vacanza in famiglia... questo è il vostro hotel.
Great for the family
This hotel is great for families. My kids just loved the historical theme and the location of the hotel is just great. Need a place for a family vacation...this is your hotel.
Upscale place at a good price
Me and some friends stayed at the Radisson in August 2001. It was a nice hotel and if you can score a good rate, it's well worth it. The rooms are a lot nicer than the economy-class hotels in Williamsburg, and the location is cool as well. The service was average; we were promised connecting rooms prior to arrival and didn't get them, nor did the staff even make much of an effort to accommodate us. As another reviewer pointed out, there is a Civil War theme in the lobby and if they covered up the painting because of the rebel flag that's really lame. Still, social beliefs aside, the Radisson is a good hotel. Compare rates here to those of the Embassy Suites Williamsburg, which is also very nice.
This hotel has a historical theme - the Civil War, and in particular, the Battle of Williamsburg. In fact, it bears the name of a nearby Confederate fort. There are fine paintings on the walls as well as artifacts on display. An article in the 10 May 2003 edition of the Hampton Roads newspaper, Daily Press, reported that because the Confederate battle flag may offend a group of judicial employees from Washington, D.C., the large framed pictures of the Battle of Williamsburg were covered with sheets! Done so because, of course, Confederate troops were fighting beneath their battle flag. Pure insanity in the name of political correctness. I, for one, will never recommend this place to anyone.
Won't Go Back
My family and I spent one night at this hotel because we were visiting Bush Gardens. We were asked to pay a $20-25 cash deposit on the room eventhough we had held the room with a credit card and paid cash when we got there (we never had to do that at any other Radisson hotel). The hotel rooms were outdated and the sheets were full of hair. When we went for breakfast, we found spotted glasses and utensils with food on them! The food was cold and terrible! Upon checkout, we were told the deposit would be sent to us, but I insisted that they give my cash deposit back and the clerk gave it back hesitantly. I'll never spend the night at that hotel again!
I went to this place on a school trip. This place is fabulous. It has a game room, indoor and out door pools, delicous restaurant, and great rooms. I highly recommend it.
Sono andato in questo hotel per una gita scolastica: è favoloso. Ha una sala giochi, una piscina interna e una esterna, un ristorante delizioso e delle camere fantastiche. Lo consiglio vivamente.
We have been to Fort Magruder Inn for 2 years now as an
anniversary gift to ourselves. The two-room suite is very spacious and has every amenity imaginable. It is a very quiet place to spend a romantic weekend. We highly recommend the suite with jacuzzi!
Una locanda favolosa!
Soggiorniamo al Fort Magruder Inn da 2 anni a questa parte come regalo per il nostro anniversario. La suite con due camere è molto spaziosa e ha tutti comfort possibili immaginabili. È un posto molto tranquillo in cui trascorrere un weekend romantico. Consigliamo vivamente la suite con jacuzzi!

As we left Bethesda, we headed south a couple hundred miles and back in time a couple hundred years... to 1775 in Colonial Williamsburg. As usual, we were late. Consequently, upon arrival, we realized that we weren't left with enough time to explore the apothecary, capitol building, governor's palace, and (most importantly)... the JAIL! So we needed to stay the night and continue our anachronistic hijinks into the next morning. We were fortunate enough to ...
Hi All We have had 3 more great days here. We've explored Williamsburg with indentured servants and enslaved servants and famous residents- General George Washington, George Wyeth, Marquis De Lafayette and John Pelham, organist for Burton Parish and the former Royal Governor. In fact Mr Pelham gave a benefit harpsichord concert in the Capitol Building last night. We also had a gourmet dinner, lit eighteenth century style, at Christianna Campbell's historic tavern. ...
... except where it benefitted us. Until Monday. It seems that there had been an accident ahead of us and a tractor-trailer had left debris on the track. Luckily we got the word and there was no danger for us. We got to our condo, (2 bdrms 2baths, and a full kitchen, plus washer and dryer), about 11/2 hrs late. But our place is really lovely. And it's nice to be able to fix our own food for a change. Steve exchanged one of our time-shares for this and it was a really good choice. ...
... see it. We walked over and noticed that all the gravestones were women. Finally we found the statue of a nurse and below it row upon row of women who had served their country as nurses at some time in their lives. Some were as far back as the Spanish American War. There may have been male nurses as well but we only saw female names where we were. We then headed out over the 200 acres to find the family graves. We had the map and the numbers and thought we could ...
... along or children playing games on the sidewalk. The day was perfect- sunny blue sky with fluffy white clouds :) The shops and old buildings along Main street were as many and varied as the tourists who patronised them. There were dimly lit taverns, a well-restored governor's palace complete with golden statues on the roof, tall stately courtrooms, a cosy little bakehouse and specialty stores such as a milliner, blacksmith, soap-maker, ...
