Marriott Vacation Club Manor Club at Ford Colony. We stayed there in late Sept 2010 and used it as a base to visit many of the historical sites in the Williamsburg, Yourktown, Jamestowne, Virginia Beach area. The property is well maintained. Staff is courtesous and very helpful. Be sure to take the time and see the Martha Washington talk each Wednesday AM. The lady is dressed in the period and knows the Colonial Era very well. Lots of terrific stories and humorous comparisons with then and now. Overall, a wonderful week. The Villas are very spacious, well appointed and clean.
We stay pretty regularly at the Fairfield and the SpringHill Suites, both on Richmond Road. There's also a Residence Inn nearby. Both are near the historic district - maybe 1.5 miles away. they're also close to a large number of restaurants.
