What a nice hotel. Its right across the street from the beach. Real close to some nice places to eat. The pool is great, the hot tubs dont have jets, or at least I couldnt find how to turn them on. The only drawback is it seems like the walls are thin, or the people in the room adjacent to me were ...
Such a lovely hotel! Free breakfast is delicious and gets you going, they are even doing omelets. Rooms are spacious and clean. Lobby and bar was great place to get a glass of wine at the evening. Parking is just across the street - private property parking. Being a Hyatt credit card holder - got ...
We have stayed at this hotel many times since it opened and found that it has not kept up to the standards of the chain. The room was poorly maintained and the lobby was freezing. The Restaurant was closed and is now used only for banquets---thus the only restaurant is in the bar area. The staff ...

Mild weather marks most days of the year here. Virginia Beach features a humid, subtropical climate, making winters short and summers hot and humid. July and August have the most precipitation, typically in the form of wild but brief afternoon thunderstorms. Mid-summer temperatures are typically in the 80s, although the humidity makes it feel hotter. The best months to visit are May and September, when highs are in the 70s and lows are in the high 50s to low 60s. Because of its prime location on the Eastern Seaboard, Virginia Beach misses most of the major snowstorms of New England, as well as the hurricanes of the southeastern states.
Virginia Beach celebrates Independence Day in style with live ocean-side performances by tribute bands and the Virginia Beach Symphony. Of course, it would not be complete without a colorful fireworks extravaganza over the Atlantic Ocean.
The half-marathon draws contestants from around the country for a fun race that finishes on the iconic concrete boardwalk. Live music from over 20 bands provides encouragement for runners.
Visitors love being in town for the Brewfest. They can sample rich German beers and savory foods, dance a polka, enter their dachshunds in a beauty pageant or participate in a talent show.
Not everything happens during the summer here. Christmas celebrations are truly spectacular with an evening spent lighting up the town, greeting Santa, caroling and watching a laser light show.
Those interested in colonial America will love Virginia Beach. First Landing Cross is part of the Cape Henry Memorial and marks the first spot where colonists landed in 1607 before heading on to Jamestown. The Old Cape Henry Lighthouse, built in 1792, is open to the public and can be reached through Fort Story. Visitors who make the trek will have beautiful views of the ocean and can also visit the newer lighthouse by the same name that was built in 1881. The Adam Thoroughgood House, one of the oldest surviving brick houses in the U.S., is another great option for visitors interested in early American architecture.
Of course, no trip to Virginia Beach would be complete without many hours spent splashing and sunning on the beach. The attractive boardwalk provides three miles of easy walking while those who are up for sportier activities can try to conquer the Atlantic waves on a surfboard. Fishers will love the amazing array of saltwater and freshwater fish that they can find at the intersection of Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic. Sailing, kayaking, jet skiing and a variety of other water sports are readily available. Visitors who prefer activities on dry land can check out the hiking trails at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
Large hotels and boutique guesthouses are dotted along the shore on Pacific Avenue and Atlantic Avenue. Beachfront accommodations like the Barclay Towers Resort Hotel are ideal for family vacations.

Modern 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit with full kitchen, dining and family room area was just perfect for our family get together for an off season visit in November. Christmas lights on the beach were beautiful. Everything was very clean and staff was friendly.
Only sellect rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. Bathroom is extremely small. I'm claustrophobic and found this unsettling for me. The price was not too bad. The hotel is close to restaurants and shopping.
The hotel location was great and the staff was truly outstanding. The room was very clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay there again, however not on a holiday. The room prices were double plus for the holiday from when I have stayed here before, however compared to other local hotels which did the same, this was definitely the greater value
Overall, expierience was good,however it has been a many years since I last stayed in a hotel that did not provide a small breakfast and room make up Dailey. I would have appreciated those very common amenities.
