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!

... quiet town on this Monday evening.
Today we are relaxing at the dock, did a little grocery shopping, and enjoying the good internet service to catch up on correspondences. This is the furthest south we will go in this trip. We wanted to do more but will need to return another year to do that. We are heading back to the Great Wicomico River this afternoon and then onto Annapolis later in the week.
... to stay in accomodation with at least 2 star each night. (..some of our accodations on this trip were nil-stars...)
Would I do a trip with the same crowd? Yes probably!. At the end they felt sort of 'comfortable' in an most unexpected old shoe kind of way....
From here, it's time for me to visit the Smithsonisn Air and Space museum, then fly home at the end of this week.
Was it a great way to see the country? Hell ...
Today we visited the Colonial town of Williamsburg. Welcome to the 18th century!

... are original from the time, albeit they’ve been fixed up. Other buildings, while not original, were built in the style of the time or built from architectural drawings recovered from the time. We spent the afternoon there and then came home. My legs said very nasty things to me, because I hadn’t used them for over a week, then walked about four miles in Williamsburg. I can’t repeat what they said—this is a ...
... 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. ...
