        only thing that i liked is that is was on the water

        Close to NTelos Pavilion, within walking distance. I requested an upgrade to water view at time of booking and was pleasantly surprised to find I had a water view room.

        Decor is a little outdated.

        We stayed here during Harborfest and absolutely loved it! We could see the water from our room. I feel like this place has the best view at Waterside. It is a bit expensive, but it's well worth it. Oh, and there is a ferry stop right outside the hotel that takes you right across the water to downtown Norfolk!

        When we arrived to the Room The Local tv Channels would not come in then I started the Water to take a Shower and this Brown Water come gushing out it finally cleared up it was the same way in the Sink made you wonder if it was safe to Shower or Brush your Teeth with it and to put the icing on the Cake the next Morning their was no Hot Water and we confronted the Front Desk about all of these inconviences they could not deduct anything off the $200.00 Dollar Bill but could only give us a complimentary Breakfast needless to say me and my Spouse will never stay their again and this was not our First stay at this Property.

        Nice, clean, staff were friendly and helpful.

        Front desk was not able to tell if breakfast was included in the room price while they charged the amount correctly afterward.

        view of the water

        smell in the room after shower. overall it was creepy. I woke up feeling sick in the middle of the night. I think there are spirits in this hotel. it felt like someone was watching me when I first walked in. the connecting door to the "crawford room" was creepy. I don'T think I want to stay in this hotel again. the long halls remind me of the movie the shining.... you asked.
