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!

... in that time period. It was much different than what we call hot chocolate. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar with vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne spices. The wig shop was quite interesting too. We learned how the wigs that the men and women wore back then expressed their status and ranking in society. We thought it was interesting that George Washington did not wear a wig, ...
A full day at Busch Gardens with Blake as we rode every ride (except the kiddie rides) in the park. Well, all but the Tempesto Roller Coaster which broke when we were just two spots away from riding in the front car. Oh well. The Naval Yard tour? Never happened as the little king ruled it out to get to the park quicker...
All the roller coasters were great, the water rides were also a big hit ...
... June inside that store, and after spending half my retirement savings on stuff, I wished them Merry Christmas as I left. They were sorry to see us go (more likely my Visa card).
Monday was the day we were supposed to leave, so we called the KOA office and extended our stay once again. We figured we would feel better on Tuesday, and we’d be outta here!
Tuesday, June 9 (And now we’re up to today):
... here! As long as this overgrown turtle-shell ain’t movin’. That’d be crazy. And if it is, I’ll just sit here quietly, playin’ solitaire and watchin’ my movies until the next time it stops. Then I’m outa here!
But maybe I’ll wait 'til tomorrow. I hear they’re playing "Miss Congeniality" in the rec room tonight. I just love Sandra ...
The day Beth and I had planned to go to Colonial Williamsburg dawned bright and sunny. We left early-ish in the morning as it was about an hour's drive from Powhatan and enjoyed a pleasant drive along tree-lined highways. Williamsburg played a key role in the movement behind the American Revolution and the site we were headed to was restored and reconstructed as the authentic historical town. When we arrived we first went to watch a movie about the life of ...
