    Historical Traveler Reviews Fort Magruder Hotel Williamsburg

    Terrible Conditions

    from

    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

    from

    Questo hotel fantastico per famiglie. I miei bambini hanno apprezzato molto il tema storico. La posizione dell'hotel semplicemente favolosa. Se cercate un posto per una vacanza in famiglia... questo il vostro hotel.

    Great for the family

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Insanity

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Excellent!

    from

    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.

    Eccellente!

    from

    Sono andato in questo hotel per una gita scolastica: favoloso. Ha una sala giochi, una piscina interna e una esterna, un ristorante delizioso e delle camere fantastiche. Lo consiglio vivamente.

    Fabulous Inn!

    from

    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!

    from

    Soggiorniamo al Fort Magruder Inn da 2 anni a questa parte come regalo per il nostro anniversario. La suite con due camere molto spaziosa e ha tutti comfort possibili immaginabili. un posto molto tranquillo in cui trascorrere un weekend romantico. Consigliamo vivamente la suite con jacuzzi!

    Starting the day by getting up at 3:30am. This may be normal for Mary but this is way too early for this old guy. Flight is on time so far to Dallas. Meeting the Z's in Dallas. They too had a really early morning. I thought vacations were set up to allow one to catch up on sleep. Well doesn't matter since we are on our way to ...

    ... session i think i've ever had. They did not stop biting, and within a very short period of time we had caught what we felt sufficient amounts for our dinner. That magic number was 20. We kept fishing because it was fun, but we must have thrown close to 20 more back in. We had lunch- southern fried chicken- and then decided it was time to head back, my arms were sore anyway, from catchin so many fish. We got back to the dock and then the fun part began- cleanin all ...

    ... With representation from 4 different nations we decided to play a sort of Ryder cup. Country vs country. Mono y mono if you will. It was more of a competition between Roger and Carole granted that I have played golf a maximum of 5 times in the last year, but that didn't stop me from getting a par and subsequently putting one on the board for Australia. As expected though, it was a whitewash with the scores ending USA 4, Switzerland 3 and Australia 1, or something like ...

    I settled into her spare bedroom, which came equipped with the world's second most comfortable bed (after mine at home). We cooked soft shell crabs for dinner and we caught up on the last few years, over a bottle of ...

    ... that is slaves behave and follow the rules, they will be rewarded in heaven. This was read to the slaves at their arrival to Williamsburg. A lot of the slaved started converting to Christianity and some slaves even applied to court for their freedom. In one letter to the archbishop it stated that the enslaved were slaved brother to brother and sister to sister. This had two meanings to people: (1) marrying slaves to masters, (2) were all enslaved brother to brother and sister ...
