Time got the best of me and in the day of saving money, I was able to book this hotel through Priceline's "Name Your Own Price" for $100. I really needed a hotel in downtown Norfolk for a graduation I planned on attending. For the price, I am still wondering how in the world did I get this view? We were placed on the ninth floor in an odd-numbered room with a slightly obstructed (but who cares!!!) view of the Norfolk waterside.
Having been to Norfolk, only once for the African American Fest, I had never really gotten a chance to see the actual beauty of the waterfront park. The fest was in full swing, people, vendors, etc were everywhere and Waterside Drive was closed. So, to see the area in its splendor and be able to walk around was very nice.
Check in was a breeze, shout out to George and Ryan who took care of me. I utilized parking garage for $12/day compared to valet which is $26. I parked on the 3rd floor and walked across the breezeway straight into the conference section of the hotel and proceeded to my hotel room. Never an issue. The commode in the room was extremely loud when flushed and the shower, although nice with great pressure gave off some interesting noises upon its first use. When I called maintenance, they came immediately to review and assisted some what. I walked three blocks to the local mall to have dinner at Max and Erma's and walked back. The area is pleasant and I felt safe. After having stayed at the Sheraton, across the street and now here, I actually prefer the Marriott better. Although my one complaint is check-out day will give you a headache because the elevators get extremely full--fast. I had to catch one going up in order to go down. Other than that, check out was a breeze!
I hope you find this review helpful.
