I had the pleasure of visiting Williamsburg this past weekend as a result of my nieces graduation. A family member had rented out the entire Providence Hall home and guest houses for our family and extended family. Frankly, it was the biggest disappointment I have experienced to date. We had several catered dinners and most of the food COULD BE RATED D if not worse. The towels were thin and old. I ordered 2 soft boiled eggs for room service - one was not cooked but completely raw. The iron produced a rusty stain/steam on our beautiful clothes. The musty smell and the mold in the small houses was consistent - just one look at the return vents on the ceiling told the tale. The rugs were dirty and needed cleaning. I was told that there would be small refridgerators and microwaves - not so. You have to request a refridgerator and get ready for an old one No microwave in site. No safe - you can bring your belongings to the front desk. No coffee pot. No complementary bottled waters. Phone only worked using the speaker function. Bathrooms are from the 80's with no hot water ...just warm. The biggest disappointment was the huge house that was rented for the graduation party. It is simply not worth one cent. We had a party of 60. The bartender was miserable. The cocktail party food included a cheese tray that had chunks of cheese thrown on a cutting board along with an assortment of some types of salami again thrown on a cutting board. Nothing was refilled. The place did not appear clean. The butlers kitchen was disgusting.
Need I say anymore? I am going to attempt to reach someone in management regarding this monumentally disappointing experience. Should you have an upcoming reservation at Providence Hall - PLEASE SERIOUSLY CONSIDER MOVING YOUR PARTY!!!! $600.00 per night just for the small guest house is better spent at the local Hampton Inn,
