Deal Of The Week

April 12, 2009|By Michelle Deal-Zimmerman

What's the deal?: The Colonial Williamsburg Summer Saver special is a good bargain for traveling families. For $599 (plus tax), a family of four can get five days and four nights at the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites, including breakfast daily, admission passes to Colonial Williamsburg and a $200 resort credit good for use at the spa, the golf course or select restaurants, and a 20 to 25 percent discount on evening programs and some retail stores. Parking is free; so are the shuttle buses to/from the historic area.

What's the savings?: Passes to Colonial Williamsburg are typically included when you stay at one of the attraction's official hotels. Overnight rates at the popular Woodlands hotel can vary, but are generally in the $100 per night range. So it's the $200 resort credit that really tacks on the savings.

What's the catch?: Limited availability of rooms. But the package is available all summer, from May 31- Sept. 3, so if your dates are flexible, you should be able to get in on this deal. Also, if you want to upgrade to a suite, it'll cost you an additional $50 per night. Lastly, the package assumes two parents and two kids under 18.
