Last week, I was invited by Missy Farren PR to a delightful celebratory event in honor of the historical Colonial Williamsburg Resort in Virginia. I graciously accepted, excited to find out more about the resort. It turned out to be one of the best press events I have ever attended.
Amidst a spectacular venue on top of Rockefeller Center, overlooking the sumptuous Saint Patrick Cathedral and the posh Fifth Avenue, the Colonial Williamsburg Resort celebrated 75 years of unparalleled hospitality at the Williamsburg Inn. Founded in 1937 by John D. Rockefeller Jr, Colonial Williamsburg has embodied several purposes throughout the decades: as a rich cultural destination, as an interactive educational role, and most importantly, as a non-profit institution.
The celebratory evening, that took place at 620 Loft & Garden, pleasantly unfolded under clear blue skies and music reminiscing an older time. Esteemed guests and press attendees sipped champagne and sampled the exquisite hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Williamsburg chefs, specially brought in for the event.
As presented by the resorts’ key executives, the Colonial Williamsburg Resort includes five hotels, an award-winning spa, 45 holes of golf, indoor/outdoor pools, multiple restaurants and museums, and so much more. Also said to be the largest living history museum in the world, Colonial Williamsburg’s historic area is filled with hundreds of restored and reconstructed colonial houses.
I am very much looking forward to visiting the historical area, seeing costumed interpreters sharing their stories of a bygone era, witnessing the decor of the 18th century, and dining at the Colonial Williamsburg legendary restaurants. Wouldn’t you?
