Vriginia's Williamsburg Inn has debuted three exclusive themed luxury suites inspired by John D. Rockefeller Jr., Queen Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill. The suites have been designed in the image of its namesake, honoring the three individuals who left their mark on Colonial Williamsburg.
Following a renovation, completed in May 2017, the suites now reflect the personality of each individual with a uniquely inspired ambiance and iconic historical photography from each figure’s time in Colonial Williamsburg.
The Rockefeller Suite’s décor gives off an air of elegance and sophistication. The suite, filled with photographs of Rockefeller’s time in the area, demonstrate the lasting impression he left on the living history museum that is Colonial Williamsburg today.
The Queen Elizabeth II Suite
The Queen’s Suite is infused with classical and regal touches. The first British monarch to visit the Williamsburg area, Queen Elizabeth II came to the Williamsburg Inn in 1957 to mark the 350th anniversary of Jamestown, the nation’s first permanent English settlement, and returned to the Inn in 2007 for the 400th anniversary. Her legacy is displayed through a series of photos that show not only her impact on the local area and the world.
The Churchill Suite pays tribute to the iconic Prime Minister of Great Britain. After his famous “Iron Curtain” speech, Churchill came to Williamsburg with Army General and future president, Dwight D. Eisenhower. The two spent the evening at the nearby Raleigh Tavern, then stayed overnight at the Williamsburg Inn, where his suite commemorates him with rare snapshots.
The Winston Churchill Suite
To celebrate the debut of these themed suites, Colonial Williamsburg will be hosting a contest where one winner will get a complimentary two-night stay at the Williamsburg Inn’s Queen’s Suite, horse and carriage rides, a round of golf on the newly renovated Gold Course, private curated afternoon tea with Williamsburg Inn Executive Chef Travis Brust, relaxing spa experience, and dinner at the Rockefeller room.
