Williamsburg began as Middle Plantation in 1633. It was Virginia’s capital from 1699 to 1780. There is a part of town protected as the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area. It is recognized as one of the most complete community restoration in the world.
The Williamsburg Inn is actually adjacent to the Historic Area and was built in 1937 by John D. Rockefeller Jr. in a neoclassical design.
In 2001, the Inn completed a full renovation but the Williamsburg Inn has been a member of Historic Hotels of America since 1994.
I highly recommend visiting them if you have the money to spare.
