The Real Deal: The Summer Saver package includes four nights in a standard guest room at the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites; breakfast daily; daily admission to Colonial Williamsburg's historic area and art museums; and a $100 activities card valid at the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, and on-site restaurants, taverns, or any official Colonial Williamsburg–owned store; from $599 per room—plus taxes of 10 percent and a $2 per night local occupancy fee.
When: May 30–Sept. 2, 2010.
The fine print: The starting rate is based on a Sunday or Monday check-in; add $50 per room per night for stays that include a Friday or Saturday night. Hotel taxes of 10 percent and a $2 per night local occupancy fee are additional.
Based on two adults and two children under 17 sharing a room; deduct about $37 for a solo traveler. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.
