Sheraton Norfolk Waterside
Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel
As the name implies, the Waterside Sheraton Hotel in Norfolk, VA is located along the south side of the Elizabeth River, in downtown Norfolk. It has about 450 rooms, over 10 floors.
The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The Sheraton, according to some locals, is considered probably the better of the hotels in this area, although the Marriott would be a close second. (Someone I know who stayed at the Radisson in Norfolk said they would never stay there again.)
Both of these hotels have been around for a number of years, and show some signs of age inside. Although our room was fine, with clean bathrooms, the shower head fixture was loose and pulled away easily from the shower wall. Other than this, everything else was fine. Some of the rooms have outdoor patios.
The hotel has a pool, but it's outdoors, so it wouldn't open until the summer.
Prices at the hotel restaurant were, in my view, a bit high, and nothing to brag about. There's a bagel restaurant a block away, or a restaurant just a block up on St. Paul St. across from the courthouse, that made better alternatives.
There is a parking complex a short walk away where you'll need to pay to park, or valet parking out front if you really don't mind paying !
Unique Quality: There's a nice view looking across the Elizabeth River, and there's a nice boardwalk between the hotel and river, to stroll along.
Within walking distance of the Nauticus Center and the USS Wisconsin, the McArthur Mall, the Scope arena, and the Chrysler Hall. The hotel's location means you have easy access to the highway.
All things considered, it was a fine place to stay, but a bit pricey.

The Sheraton is one of the better hotels in Norfolk with nice rooms, a good location on the water, and within easy walking distance to bars, clubs, restaurants, the baseball stadium, and historic sites. However, this hotel will nickel and dime you to death with miscellaneous charges, so be prepared. You will spend money on valet parking, a fee for non-valet parking, a fee to call 1-800 numbers, a $50 (!) early checkout fee, a late check in fee, local call fee, dial-up ISP fee...
Those are just the fees I experienced. There are probably others I wasn't lucky enough to experience!
