Dog-Friendly Williamsburg, VA-Where we visited on this trip to Williamsburg VA: Holiday Inn Patriot-Williamsburg, Duke of Gloucester Street  


Williamsburg, VA  Dexter The Dog and I headed to Williamsburg, Virginia for our first annual Cavalier King Charles Spaniel event, Cavapalooza! We were so excited to be able to attend this dog event, and organizers expected close to 100 Cavaliers! I would also present a dog training workshop on how to have a calm dog feeding routine.

Our dog event was held at the Holiday Inn Patriot-Williamsburg. This is also where Dexter The Dog and I would call home for a few days. The large conference room was the ideal spot to host our dog event. The carpet made the hotel conference room feel cozy and welcoming.

The Holiday Inn Patriot-Williamsburg is a premier location on Richmond Road off I-64. The hotel is centrally located, so it’s just a hop, skip & jump to visit nearby Colonial Williamsburg, a major destination for vacations. Busch Gardens is only five miles away. If you are able to travel a bit further, Historic Jamestown, James River plantations, and Yorktown can make a great day trip. If shopping is more your style, the Premium Outlets are only a half-mile away.

Dog-Friendly Hotels
The Holiday Inn Patriot-Williamsburg’s guest rooms were very nice and spacious. Our dog-friendly hotel room included free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV with premium channels, microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable bed with triple-sheeted bedding. And Dexter appreciated the cozy chairs to lounge around on.  The dog-friendly hotel also offered other amenities that we did not take advantage of such as Indoor & outdoor pools, fitness center, business center, kid’s bounce house, dry cleaning, concierge services, and dining room.


Although we did not spend much time venturing out in Williamsburg, we did take one morning stroll down Duke of Gloucester Street. This famous landmark has been walked by Presidents throughout the years starting with George and Martha Washington! Now Dexter The Dog and I are not history buffs by any means, but this was pretty cool.

Duke of Gloucester Street has certainly had its ups and downs over the years.  Currently, the street and the surrounding streets host local businesses, but still have that historic charm. Walking down Duke of Gloucester Street today is like stepping back into the 18th century.
Dexter The Dog and I had a wonderful time in Williamsburg, Virginia. It was a short weekend full of doggie adventures. We would definitely like to come back to really check out the dog-friendly town of Williamsburg.
