Fantastic Downtown Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 10, 2011

Enjoyed this hotel quite a lot because of its terrific location, the view of the Elizabeth River, and the comfort it provided. Our 14th floor, corner room came with 2 floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooked the busy Elizabeth River, "Waterside Festival Marketplace" and a portion of the Norfolk Downtown area. I was mesmerized by all the activity on the river going on day and night, and particularly interesting to me was the Elizabeth River Ferry which functioned like a water taxi!

Our room was quiet, came with a fantastic king-size bed, nice size TV, comfortable lounging chair, and work desk. There was a nice changing area with mirror and sink, as well as a large separate bathroom. A hair dryer, ironing board and iron were also provided as well as several nice toiletries. The small fridge and coffee/tea making facilities really came in handy both day and night as we could enjoy coffee in our room by morning as well as chill water, soft drinks and small quantities of food in the fridge. Breakfast is not included in the nightly rate.

The hotel lobby was large and had many comfortable sofas and chairs. You could also help yourself to several different newspapers provided free of charge. Located just off the lobby was "Shula's 347 Grill" restaurant and a nice gift shop.

On the second level there was a very warm, cozy, wood-paneled lounge and bar area where small tables and wonderful chairs were grouped together making it the perfect spot for conversations and meeting friends. It had the luxurious feel of a wealthy gentlemens club.

Many historic attractions, shopping and restaurants were all within walking distance: the MacArthur Memorial, the USS Wisconsin, the Norfolk Southern Railroad Museum, the MacArthur Center Mall, etc., etc.,.

As my husband was here on a business trip, we received a corporate room rate of $95 per night + tax which for this location was quite fantastic! The only downside of this hotel was that the daily maid service was slow-- not until afternoon usually. Sometimes even after being away for several hours, we returned to find that the room had not yet been serviced. However, the quality of the furnishings, the grand view and the low room rate made this inconvenience a small burden to bear.

Valet parking is available for $26 per night; self-parking will run you $12 to $19 per day depending on whether you are in & out of the garage several times a day or not.

Unique Quality: Great location, great room with river view, coffee/tea-making service in room, comfortable lobby!!

Directions: Located downtown across from "Waterside" Shoppes on Waterside Drive.
