Honeymoon Hotels in Virginia

by Nannie Kate

If the romantic hotels of Virginia are any indication, it's not hard to understand the motto, "Virginia is for Lovers." From the seashore to the mountains and all across the state, Virginia offers venues for romantic honeymoons.

Beach Honeymoon Hotels

For a luxurious honeymoon at the beach, consider the 21-story Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel with its Sky Bar and swimming pool on the roof. Take advantage of the romance special offered by this hotel. You can arrange to check in early and check out late and enjoy the rooftop amenities and in-house spa. Dine at Catch 31 and get a buy-one-get-one-free meal with a multiple-night stay. You also get a full hot breakfast in bed or in the restaurant. Fairfield Inn and Suites, along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, offers special romantic accommodations with in-room whirlpool jetted tubs. Enjoy your continental breakfast bar each morning and swim in the enclosed pool with ocean view.

Country Honeymoon Hotels

Relax in the countryside colonial atmosphere of Virginia with a pastoral honeymoon at the Inn at Little Washington. Experience the sumptuous decor imported from England, and participate in the traditional English afternoon tea. The Inn offers guestrooms, suites and stand-alone cottages. Mayor's House has a jetted whirlpool bathtub and wall-sized wood-burning stone fireplace. When you book a romance package with The Homestead, located next to the George Washington National Forest, champagne, chocolates and flowers will greet you upon arrival. Have a formal dinner in the Homestead Dining Room, accompanied by a baby-grand piano in the background, or enjoy a casual lunch in the Casino Club Restaurant.

Wedding Packages

Virginia hotels with wedding packages allow you a certain number of nights free with weddings that are booked in the hotel. Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport Hotel in Arlington offers as many as five free nights of honeymoon accommodations when the booking criteria are met. The offer includes destinations in Mexico and Aruba as well as in the United States. Or, choose to marry in the Shenandoah Valley in a smaller, more intimate ceremony. The Staunton Choral Gardens Bed and Breakfast offers a wedding package that includes the ceremony and either one or two nights free depending on total length of stay.

Historic Williamsburg Honeymoons

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation offers romantic venues for memorable honeymoons with an added bonus: profits from the hotels in their domain revert to the foundation to better preserve the historic past of Williamsburg. Stay in the Williamsburg Inn, a hotel resplendent in Regency decor with marble bathrooms and spacious suites. Dine in the Regency Room for Angus beef filets, lobster bisque or braised lamb shanks. The Williamsburg Lodge includes a main guesthouse and several peripheral guesthouses with multiple accommodations. The Lodge Restaurant has a special brunch on Sunday and a seafood buffet each Friday night. The Lodge Lobby Lounge offers live entertainment on weekends.
