Well I stayed here for about 10 days because the ship I was supposed to visit for work was delayed on arrival. I had to extend my stay a couple of times, and the staff was easy to work with to keep the same rate as I originally had. And when I had a co-worker that needed to stay as... More

We were very happy with our two day stay at this location. The staff is very friendly. Our room was clean. We had a very comfortable sleep. The breakfast was also very good and included! :). The only down side is that the parking garage is located accords the street. Would stay here again.

Definitely the most friendly & helpful staff I've encountered, especially Steven at the front desk and the people that work with him on the evening shift. The people were incredibly nice and engaging. For example, when walking through the hall, a maintenance man went out of his way to ask if I was in town for a job interview (which... More

The hotel location is pretty good. Close to a lot of stuff, and seems central to most spots. The hotel is nice and clean, while the parking garage is behind the hotel. It is 24hrs with a ticket you get validated at the lobby desk. Let me break down the staff: Room staff were on the ball, and slightly too... More

Check in was quick and friendly. Nice hotel, centrally located to the mall and many restaurants. Breakfast was decent, light dinner items I passed on. Clean rooms and mostly quiet except for the local city train that seems to have a need to honk its horn often. Only thing I question is the parking. I Self parked and checked in.... More

Thank you for your review. The parking garage is a city garage with is not open 24 hours per day so the fee is $13.00 until 2am. The hotel pays for 24 hour access and additional security which is why the fee is $18 per day. We also have reserved spots in the garage. Many of our guest would be... More

Visiting Norfolk, for a Navy retirement we had a number of options but decided to try the Residence Inn Downtown. Easy to find on Brambleton and parking is in the garage across the street. The sign on the garage states max charge is $13 but the hotel charges $18. You have a reserved spot, so in busy times, that would... More

So let's start with the positives, very quiet, comfortable rooms, great location with lots of restaurants within walking distance. Extremely nice housekeepers and management and maintainence crew. The free breakfast and light dinners several nights a week are nice especially after a long day. The negatives, I have had issues with my key almost everyday. Either coming back from the... More

I know, I meant to say clean twice. Drove in from the outer banks. Late, long day. I love opening that door and seeing the popcorn in the room. And the living room - bedroom deal make it feel like it's not a one bedroom closet. I've got to get Residence Inn higher on my marriott radar.
