Waterside Marriott gave up against Hilton Main
Upgrades at Waterside Marriott are disappointing. The room upgrades are very nice, the staff was fantastic and b'fast was great; but the entrance / lobby is significantly downsized with no sitting area available. The concierge suite was moved from the 24th floor with gorgeous views of the Norfolk waterside to a windowless room off the lobby with no controlled access (anyone could walk in off the street into the lounge that executive-level guests pay extra to access). Visited the Hilton Main across the street for late-night appetizers, and the festive, upbeat atmosphere made returning to the Marriott seem even more disappointing. It also didn't help that the indoor pool and hot tub were closed. We've stayed in executive room at Marriott Waterside (pre-upgrade) and the Hilton Main, and found both enjoyable, but the "upgrades" seem like Marriott has folded in the face of competition. Too bad.

it funny how you wont let a REAL review go public .

Very good 8.0
I want to say great BUT disappointed a little
Check in was easy and valet was prompt. Front counter was extremely helpful and courteous. I was presenting at a conference being held at the Marriott conference center so it was very convenient. Beds were comfy and rooms were well appointed. We had one issue: the plumbing! Bathroom LOOKS beautiful but the sink didn’t drain, shower struggled to drain so the second person showering had to stand in 2 inches of water and the toilet would randomly make gurgling noises. Not great for a moderately priced hotel. Was only staying two nights but still, a bit disappointed.

100% would recommend
I was staying with my mother for a few nights after I had just had surgery, and the staff was so incredibly kind and considerate. They did everything they could to make sure I was comfortable and made accommodations simple unlike another place I had stayed before. They even had the valet help me in and out of my wheelchair as well as with my bags. I would definitely choose this hotel over anywhere else to stay in Norfolk, as my expectations were exceeded for what we paid to stay a night.
