Newport News Marriott at City Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

every thing was great, was there for a Navy retirement/reunion, and had one person that needed a closer place to be able to visit us on all our outings we had ,and the hotel staff put a roll away bed in my room at no charge, which was a very nice move. the on site bar had good food and nice staff and a good breakfast buffet , all good here if in area well stay here for sure.

This hotel over took me when I first walked in, the cleanliness of the lobby, the aroma wad perfect. But once I got to my room it was lovely room not really that big, but comfy enough to sleep. This is where the problem is, when you touch the bed it was dusty, the lamps dusty and the headboard dusty. I didn't want to complain because I had other things on my mind. This wasn't a pleasant trip it was a sad, so no complaining, figured I would get this review. Asked for fresh cups the first day and didn't get them until the second day, requested blankets and the were all out, had to turn up the heat in room. I am glad that I had a place to rest, next time I will mention before hand.

We were always having to ask for extra coffee 1 coffee for 2 people isn't enough., some days I had to go to the front desk to get my own. .always having to request extra towels. I have extra long hair and need a towel for my hair besides my body. .washer didn't work and was suppose to be renbursed for what had happened, but the front desk didn't know how to do that and never was...

pool a bit small for swimming laps work out room cramped

This hotel was nicely decorated, comfortable, and located in pretty City Center. I will continue to return to this hotel over the next 4 years while my daughter attends college.

Room was very clean and comfortable. Worth the price!

Didnt have toothpaste in the morning - didn't have time to grab and when I came back that night STILL did not have it... I had to get a cab to go to a 24hr pharmacy to get some.. It's pretty standard for a hotel to stock it. Ordinary.

It was a beautiful hotel with a really pretty view (we got the fountain view). The City Center was very nice and had options. I wish there would have been more shops and that the shops would have been open on Sunday. I had only two complaints. The first is that I was charged $6 a day for parking. We didn't have a car there most of the time as we were visiting a family member and used his car. If I would have known there was a charge for each day I would have only gotten the pass for one or two days. When they offered the pass no explanation on pricing was given. My other complaint is when I placed the request for sheet changes on my bed the sheets were not changed. Also, they said that they would replace with clean sheets every 3 days and that didn't happen either.

This was a business trip and the service was very hospitable. The location was great, within walking distance to the office. There was plenty of dining opportunities in the area as well as shopping. There was a delightful fountain pond that you could stroll/walk around to get some exercise/fresh air after a day's work.

The Marriott at City Center was great. I love night view of City Center as you look down at the fountains from your window. The building and fountain lights create a wonderful view to enhance a night of romance. And the look of the room creates a warm feeling that is very welcoming and modern at the same time. The bed was sooo comfortable we missed breakfast...if you're looking for a relaxing hotel this is definitely it.
