Great experience
The stuff were so kind and helpful. The room service from the restaurant was delicious! The server who brought us our food was so nice and made a second trip back up to our room when my daughter asked for fries. We would absolutely stay again. There was construction on the lower floors but it didnt bother us since we got one of the freshly renovated rooms.

Happy in Norfolk VA
A very comfortable stay. Excellent breakfast buffet and service. The hotel is undergoing significant renovation, the staff went over and above to compensate and keep me comfortable. There was a minor problem with bathroom plumbing, water temperature was difficult to control.

Very good 8.0
Good enough... just not great.
Love love LOVED the pillows and comforter! The overall hotel isn’t as smooth because they are remodeling. We had to find our room through a maze. When the bars nearby closed at 2am, we awoke to the cars leaving the parking garage right by our hotel. However, only lasted about half an hour (silver lining? Lol) I know we were not in a renovated room because the bathroom fixtures/ shower curtain/ ceiling showed signs of wear. However, the towels/sheets/ comforters were totally acceptable. Wish they had free parking instead of $12 for self parking ... Overall a “fine” stay. No major complaints. Good enough for us, but I hope it’s better after the remodel. No business wants to be good enough... I hope...

Fair 4.0
We stayed there before the remodel and liked it this time our room had been remodeled our sink only let out a drip of water at a time and when we sat on the bed the light on the wall turned off. When I told them they said someone would fix it when we got back it was the same I showed them a video of our light not working the guy said well it must be motion sensor. By that time we were already going to bed and leaving either wise it would’ve been nice to move rooms.

Pros and Cons- You Decide
Definitely need to take caution when booking a room through a third party- upon check in, the front desk mentioned that our room was booked through an outside source twice. I believe that led us to receiving the sub-par room we did. Buyer beware! Avoid room 410 unless you enjoy confined spaces, outstated and very warn amenities. Pros: Front Desk = Excellent, Location = Perfect Cons: Housekeeping (was close to non-existent) - blood stains on comforter, mold on shower liner, missing soap for two days, bathmat for one of four days. Shower and sink were very slow to drain and furniture was missing one handle and another was a mismatch. After being out of the room all day, coming back to our closet was disappointing. We weren't even sure if the beds were made up- there is still debate over that. (Although, I will say that the beds were super comfortable). I question if our room assignment would have been better if we had booked directly through the hotel's website. Once again, at checkout, the third party booking site was mentioned. I hope this room is retired for future guests as a makeover/update wouldn't help much.
