Stayed here 4/2/17. Good experience at the front door. Greeted and assisted by the friendly door man. Easy parking; not rushed to unload. Beds were great. Super fresh, crisp, and soft. Room was hot (was set to 73); had to keep turning down the temp. No way that hotel room floor had been vacuumed, though: I could feel the hairs...

I stayed in the hotel during a business trip which included a work conference held at this hotel. When you first walk in, it is stunning and gorgeous. The location is great as it is convenient to Granby Street where all the restaurants and bars are located. The staff is friendly and the customer service is outstanding....especially the bartender at...

The hotel appeared to be a little tired, dated. The room was okay, but was mysteriously missing the window sheers, only having heavy plastic (?) drapes. As a plus, the front desk staff was very nice and accommodating.

I walked in and the lobby was beautiful. I checked in with Claire and she was nice. And informed me my room wasn't ready yet. I gave my luggage to the bellman to hold till my room was ready. It was around 10am. I came back from lunch and got my luggage from Ben. He was super fast and very...

Stayed there four nights during business trip. Hotel is well situated, with lot of options to do around - dining, sightseeing (USS Wisconsin), shopping. Equipment of the hotel is bit dated, clearly it can be seen on the room furniture, which is generally worn. Staff during breakfasts was terribly slow... Overall impression could be described by the smoking pole that...

We arrived late. Looked for valet parking. Nice woman said she would park us. Turns out, she was the Manager who had no help. Was not acknowledged as an elite member and had to request a larger room /upgrade. Hotel is slightly dated, but quiet and full of convention goers. Good views from higher floors. Many restaurants nearby. Expensive valet...

From the elevator to my room, there was glitter all over the floor. Upon opening the door on my room and entering, there was glitter all over the floor. The toilet seat was broken.

Honestly as a platinum rewards member I think I am getting pickier with my attention to details. Upon arriving I pulled up under the entry portico. Two young men handling the valet simply stood there. I started unloading my trunk and when approached the valet stand they asked checking in sir. No offer for help, I proceeded in to meet...

We were surprised at how rundown and motel like this hotel was. The door didn't open on our first few tries only to be told by downstairs staff that the door handles have been put on the wrong way so we should have known better and turned them accordingly (as confusing to me as anyone who has ever visited a...

I attended a conference here for a week earlier this month. At one point, there was a tornado warning for downtown Norfolk with a radar-indicated tornado approaching. The front desk staff could have been working on the Titanic. The three desk clerks had no clue what to do and asked a valet. We were told by him that "you are...
