Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) April 18, 2015
Associations meeting in Historic Williamsburg can now enhance their gatherings by choosing from one of several off-site group experiences, from informative, guided tours of Jamestown Settlement to an amazing sailing charter onboard a historic Yorktown Schooner.
Williamsburg’s off-site experiences are ideal for presenting the world’s largest outdoor living museum where 18th century buildings, homes and taverns allow individuals to step back into time when America was founded.
Experiences include “Shades of Gray and Blue,” a Civil War tour; “Great Hopes – An African American Journey,” and “Sticks & Stones, Buried Bones,” an archaeology and regional history tour. Groups also can enjoy “Ships ‘N Shores,” a regional nautical tour; “Mischief & Mistletoe,” a holiday tour; and “Bulbs, Blooms & Blossoms” exploring the amazing gardens of the historic area.
These and other suggested group itineraries can be found under the Plan Your Group Tour tab at http://www.VisitWilliamsburg.com.
The suggested off-site group experiences, along with updated conference center space at DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg, the area’s premier conference center hotel, make the area one of the most desirable for Mid-Atlantic association meetings.
Nestled in a forested setting in Colonial Williamsburg, the 295-room DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg offers a modern conference center with 31 flexible meeting and event spaces including the 13,300-square-foot President’s Ballroom with a capacity up to 1,400 guests.
All of the hotel’s meeting spaces were enhanced in late 2013 as part of a property-wide renovation. Guestrooms, the hotel’s lobby and public areas also were transformed.
Spacious guestrooms at DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg feature plush furnishings, signature Sweet Dreams bed, large HDTV, WiFi, mini-fridge, a refreshing array of CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn, and an assortment of gourmet in-room tea and coffee offerings.
Guests at the Williamsburg hotel enjoy indoor and outdoor pools, 24-hour Precor Fitness Center, 24-hour business center and complimentary Wi-Fi access in the hotel’s public areas. Its three in-house restaurants include The Harvest Grill, Pitcher’s Sports Bar and the Williamsburg Café for a light bite or grab-and-go selections. Plus, guests are greeted with a warm, chocolate chip cookie, an experience exclusive to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand.
Situated adjacent to I-64 and I-199, DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is located in the heart of Virginia’s Historic Triangle at 50 Kingsmill Road, just a short drive to the historic attractions and off-site entertainment venues available for groups in Colonial Williamsburg and historic Jamestown and Yorktown. It also is less than 45 minutes from Newport News/ Williamsburg International Airport, Richmond International Airport and Norfolk International Airport.
DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is owned by Waramaug Hospitality LLC and a private investment group in a joint venture with Interstate Hotels & Resorts which also operates the hotel.
