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.

Dog-Friendly Vacations: Williamsburg, VA

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.

  1. It’s so great that the event was held in a hotel and not somewhere outside. That proves how pet friendly some hotel chains are becoming. Your room sounds like it was perfect and you had a good night sleep on the comfy bed.

  2. Dogs event? Never knew there was such a thing apart from dog shows which are meant for them to do tricks. But it sure does sound lot of fun for owner and their dogs. Especially you get to sleep on a very luxurious bed at the end of the day.

  3. I love that there are so many places these days that allow dogs. We always try and take our Sally away with us as I don’t like leaving her and it is amazing the trips we have had with her.

  4. What a fun event for you and Dexter to attend!!
    I love the idea of seeing so much with your pet 🙂

  5. Good to see that there are lot of places coming infront of us which are pet friendly. Thanks for sharing this

  6. We’re looking into adopting a puppy, I am loving all the pet related posts I am finding. It is really important that pet owners can find fun places that they can vacation that welcomes their pet.

  7. Interesting event! Love dogs and most of my friends too. They deserve love and care like use people.

  8. This is awesome. With our pooch and us wanting to go travel, we do tons of research for dog-friendly destinations in the US. If we ever make it Virgina, this is definitely a stop for us.
