Hotel was as expected and front desk staff was friendly. Easy walking distance to restaurants and nearby attractions. One big negative ... I was charged for 2 days valet parking, but I didn't have a car. The amount was charged to my room and then credited. When I asked about the charge before I checked out I was told it...

Had a business stay and the front desk was always nice and helpful. I'm not from the area so I was confused about driving on the street where the trolley/rail would pass so at first I passed the hotel. Room was very clean and bed were ok. The 7th floor has a nice view. There's a mall right across the...

Looking forward to a great stay and don't get me wrong the place is very good and staff fantastic. But when it comes to sharing a room with a colony of ants it's a bit much. I never noticed them on my late arrival being dark. In the morning I saw them crossing the bathroom door threshold and accumulating in...

Room was great. Service and staff were excellent. Easy freeway access to all the places I wanted to go. Parking was reasonably priced. Walking distance to the battleship memorial and downtown marina. I loved my stay there!

We recently stayed at the Courtyard Marriott during the 13 mike race held in Virginia Beach. We were happy to hear of the nearby restaurants that were in walking distance. We also had breakfast at the hotel that was delicious. While attending the race we saw the hotels on the beach and we're happy we chose the Marrott. It would...

What I want from a business hotel is a clean room, close proximity to my meeting, good wifi, and friendly staff. You will get all of this at this hotel. The mall nearby has excellent selection of restaurants/shopping. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for three nights on business and can't complain. My room was quiet and clean, my bed was comfortable, my shower was nice, the WiFi worked fine and I even had a mini fridge.

Where do I start? I stayed at this hotel for a week while attending a convention. I think it'd be best if I just cut to the chase and recognize all the fine folks who contributed to making my stay so enjoyable. (I hope I've kept the job titles and names straight. If not, well the name is what's important.)...
