Norfolk Waterside Marriott
Service was slow both in the hotel and associated restaurant Food was delivered to the room cold with orders incomplete. At check-out an erroneous bill charge took 30 minutes to resolve despite being forewarned of the issue. Not up to the standard normally experienced at a Marriot.

Very Good8.0
Comfy beds and conference facilities good
Stayed for a conference and although busy service was good. Shula's restaurant attached to the hotel, failed to impress, but the Texas de Brazil in MacArthur Mall was excellent.

Norfolk Waterside Marriott
reserved room type not available
This reservation was booked 3.5 months in advance, requesting a handicap accessible room. At check in, a handicap accessible room was not available. A free breakfast was offered in response, which is wholly unacceptable. The lack of accessible room led to several almost falls and a very stressful stay. After the reservation ended, I spoke with a manager who confirmed that the hotel was aware of the reservation with accessibility need 2 weeks in advance but this request for an accessible room was "missed." He then suggested that an accessible room with different bed size may have been available, which is incredibly frustrating, given the safety need for the accessible room. A free breakfast in lieu of the needed accessible room is a horribly poor response to not having a room that was booked 3.5 months in advance.

Sanitation is a big problem. Very big percentage of plates are dirty. Got diarrhea after several hours had the breakfast.
