Woodlands Hotel & Suites, Williamsburg, Virginia $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
This 300-room modern hotel next to the Visitor Center on the northern edge of the historic area is the newest of the five foundation-run options and the best for kids. Not only does it have its own swimming pool, it's also bordered by a 40-acre pine wood next to the nature trail, and there's a riotous family eatery with a faux-historic name, HUZZAH! (capital letters and exclamation point included), but distinctly nonhistoric burgers, pizzas, wraps, and pasta. Though there's a semi-Shaker vibe to its wood-beamed lobby-lounge, the Woodlands is practical rather than stylish.
