overnight stay

The hotel had been sold out the night prior to our stay, so we were told that we would be called when a room became available. I had to ask about the room twice as the wait time had become uncomfortable. We had driven 7 hours to get there. I observed others checking in and receiving a room immediately. This was apparently for some good reason, but still I asked. The Front Desk personnel were surly when responding, but I was given a room on my second check. It was a little disappointing. All other services and personnel were great.

Nice hotel, good location

My sister and mom stayed at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott while visiting my niece who is in the Navy. It was a very nice hotel with clean rooms and comfy beds. The location was ideal for us to use as a base for our explorations, and enjoy the downtown area.

Great weekend stay

The hotel is in a great location, with riverfront views and in the middle of downtown. Close to many restaurants and a large mall. The breakfast buffet is absolutely the best we've experienced at a hotel, with cooked to order omelets and belgian waffles! Very nice hotel!

Just meet the standard, not very impressive. The breakfast is very delicious, and the hotel crew were kind and hospitable. Next time i will recommend my family to stay in this hotel as well as Norfolk where is the calm and peacefully city worth to visit.

Expensive for what we got

We were kind of turned off from this hotel from the moment we arrived because there was a ton of road construction and hotel remodeling going on. We had to park in a public garage (what the hotel calls their self-parking) but the walkway to the hotel was closed so we had to get all our kids and gear back down to the busy street and across. The room itself was okay. The bedroom part was pretty nice and had been updated recently. The bathroom, however, was a different story. The tile in the shower was old and chipped and the grout was moldy. The floor was also sticky, although that was resolved after our first night. The other issue we had was LOUD neighbors. We were in a room with a connecting door to the next room, which might have been the reason that sound traveled so easily between rooms. Regardless, it's hard to have something positive to say about a hotel when you get less than 5 hours of sleep two nights in a row :( Our final issue was the price. We paid more to get a water view room, but our water view was not ideal. If we looked between two building, we could see a little water. Beyond that even, the price was high for all the inconveniences with construction and renovations. It would be nice if Marriott would offset the inconveniences with a cheaper price or at a minimum free wi-fi or breakfast coupons. Anything to show they appreciate our business while they're clearly not at their best. It would also be nice if this was made clear at the time of booking. On a positive, the staff was pretty friendly. Overall, I would not return here and would not recommend it to others. Perhaps it will be nice once the renovations are complete, but I was too turned off to try them again.

Warm and friendly and very helpful

I arrived late and the front desk was so helpful. I was offered my choice of a free drink and food which was brought up to my room on time.
