Visited the NPN area for business travel and found the Marriott at City Center to be very convenient. Great park like setting and easy to walk to smaller restaurants in the area. The hotel room was very clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. Negatives: no refrig available, asked for king bed and given a room with two doubles.... More

I have spent one week in this hotel and i can say it is a good hotel. Rooms are big and clean. When you enter the room a good fragrance is felt. It has a nice fitness room and a small but nice swimming pool... Just to relax. I recommend it.

This hotel reminded me more of an interstate motel than a Marriot that supposedly is geared toward special events. The location is great with views of a fountain and near shops and restaurants. However, the hotel itself could use improvements. One: I was surprised to read reviews that suggest the lobby was recently renovated. If that's the case, the money... More

We have stayed here multiple times and have previously been very pleased with the rooms and quality of service. This time, however, failed to impress. The lobby has been redone in a more modern stye. I tend to appreciate this aesthetic yet the overall effect seemed to cheapen the space and make it louder. The rooms had two burned out... More

Good luck trying to find the entrance to the hotel for starters. Once you are inside the door you are greeted with very unfriendly low slung 'seats', not conducive for any kind of conversation......nothing in this hotel is free, nothing.......coffee, at the door is $3, shame on you Marriott. Spent two sleepless nights there. Voices carry through the vents from... More

We were in Newport News to attend a wedding for the son of our longtime friends. They selected the Marriott at City Center. We were not familiar with it but we understood why they chose it.

City Center is a different sort of place. The hotel is beautiful with helpful staff. I did not eat at the restaurant since there are so many other places, but the shops have changed since my last visit. The Marriott has a decent Fitness Center, an indoor pool, and my only complaint is the parking. It's $6 a day to... More

We had won this weekend stay at a charity silent auction and were really just looking for a quiet place away. We knew the hotel was located near the world class Mariners' Museum with its halls of golden figureheads, full size replica Merrimac, and the actual Monitor turret, the amazing wildlife of the Virginia Living Museum and the earth shaking...

We held our z40th Class Reunion there. They were easy to work with, very professional, and delivered on their promises. This is our 2nd time at this property. Seemed to have been a lot of turnover since we began our communications with the hotel. All of out points of contact turned over.
