We had a family member in Norfolk General Hospital and while the overview of the hotel seemed fine online ... and we wanted to be close to the facility... we recommend you think twice before booking your sleeping room at this property. Rickety elevator, VERY loud heating/cooling unit in room and paper thin walls. Add the sleep number beds not... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have met with our housekeeping staff to ensure that all of the refrigerators are properly cleaned in between each guest, and we currently have our elevator company looking into the elevator issues. I do appreciate the nice note about the server in the restaurant. More

The Wyndham is centrally located in the middle of downtown Norfolk. It is nearby many attractions such as the Norfolk Scope, Harrison Opera House and Ghent. As with many cities, the area turns from seemingly nice to run down. While not a real issue for us, it could be inhibiting for others. We only stayed one night. The entrance area... More

After viewing a couple hotels in the area Wyndham stuck in my mind and won me over and I'm very pleased with my decision. After speaking with Evelyn( housekeeping supervisor) she volunteered to show me around. I was very pleased with her hospitality which was a big part of me choosing Wyndham.

From the time I check in everyone was very pleasant and helpful. My room was very cleaned I love the red wall. The housekeeper gave several good places to eat made sure she mention the hotel restaurant first. She was right I loved the seafood platter.

Key didn't work, so they comped my parking. Funky décor, but it's classy looking. My 11-year old says it looks like JZ's living room. Great staff. Comfortable room. What else do you want? AAA+++....Scope is right across the street...
