Summer Saver Package at Colonial Williamsburg

What's the deal? A family of four can visit Colonial Williamsburg as part of the Summer Saver Package, starting at $599, and receive a four-night stay and daily breakfast at the Williamsburg Woodlands, admission to the Historic Area and museums, and a $100 activities credit to be used for spa, golf, dining or shopping. The package is available May 30-Sept. 2.

For couples, the resort is offering the Summer Stories Package, which for $499 includes a two-night stay with breakfast at the upscale Williamsburg Lodge, admission to the historic area and museums, and a $100 activities credit. The package is available June 18-Sept. 2.

What are the savings? The family package has easy-to-see savings. To start off, a hotel room at Woodlands is about $134 per night arriving on a Sunday in June. That's $536 right off the bat. Admission to Colonial Williamsburg for two adults and two kids for four days is $90 — that's using the discount you receive as a hotel guest. The continental breakfast is free for hotel guests, so no savings there. Add on the $100 for activities, and the a la carte price is about $725, give or take a few dollars.

What's the catch? The family package starting rate is based on Sunday or Monday arrival and a shared standard guest room. (Friday and Saturday night stays cost $50 more per night.) An upgrade to a suite costs an additional $50 per night, based on availability. The package is for two adults and two children under age 17.

The couples package starting rate is based on Sunday to Wednesday arrival. It's of note that the Spring Stories Package for couples starts at $399, is available through June 17 and includes similar amenities. It's a better option for those who can squeeze in an early summer vacation.
