This hotel is absolutely the worst never stay here because very poor managed, up kept, and ghetto employee’s. I stayed here during the weekend of thanksgiving because of last minute traveling arrangements. Where to start on the problems with this hotel door to the room didn’t lock, musky odor in rooms, cords wouldn’t stay in the outlets, and sleep number... More

This place has so many areas to improve!!! Got the deal from Groupon. Absolutely ideal location...however, your lobby decor does not even come close to exemplifying the rest of the hotel. Pictures are misleading! Door did not close properly, musky odor in rooms, dusty all over the room, cords wouldn't even stay in outlets, not too the patch jobs everywhere!... More

I recently stayed at the Norfolk Plaza Hotel for a few days in November 2014. The Norfolk Plaza is a good, clean hotel, and convenient to everything in town. But what I really wanted to remark on was the helpfulness and friendliness of the front desk Manager, Bobbi. She was always so very helpful, and always greeted me with a... More

Been needing to get to this review for a little over a month now. First and foremost, this place is NOT what it looks like on the web or even close. The pictures are photoshopped to no end. My now wife and I aren't the richest people, so we try and find deals where we can. We wanted an affordable... More

Congratulations on your recent wedding. I am so sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay here at the Norfolk Plaza. I am not sure of the exact dates of your stay, but we have instituted many changes since September. Due to the complaints of our WiFi system, we completely replaced our entire system. The process took almost 2... More

My husband and I stayed here briefly last night. We picked this hotel because it was close to the Chrysler Hall and we were seeing a performance. We stayed on the 12th floor and while the lobby was nice when we got off the elevator we felt like we were staying at a different hotel. The hallway smelled like a... More

I am so sorry to hear about your stay this past weekend. We do strive to meet or exceed every guests expectations, and I am sorry that we failed during your stay. There was an alumni event in our ballroom that night and though we brought on extra security, those guests did interfere with other guests stays and for that... More

I stayed at the Norfolk Plaza hotel on business. It was downtown and close to where I needed to be. The hotel itself was nice. I was greeted by Billy and Joe who were great with checking me in. Imagine my surprise when I was told I was guest of the day. I thought it was joke. Then they showed... More

Thank you so much for your kind words about Billy and the newest addition to our team Joe. I also appreciate your bringing to the morning agents attention the issues with the computer in the business center. We have already wiped the computer clean and reloaded all of the software to fix the speed issues so other guests will not... More

This hotel I must admit has lost its luster. It needs to be upgraded, The front lobby is to dark and not really inviting, new lighting is in order, the decor needs to be over hauled and the maintenance in the rooms needs to be a priority. That's the surface items...Now to the front liners...FRONTDESK personnel I believe should take... More

Upon arrival I was told that what I had originally requested( double-beds) were not available due to high volumn of booking. However I was offered by the staff a suite; which I gladly accepted.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. My wife and I got a groupon to stay at this hotel for a few days as we celebrated our anniversary. We traveled over 6 hours from NJ to have stayed there and we wish we would have stayed somewhere else. As soon as we got there it took them... More

This place seems to be styled as a throwback to the 60's. I was surprised there wasn't a valet up front based on the design of the hotel. It probably had one when it was first built. But over time the luster has worn off. It's oddly out of time. The site itself is awkward, especially having to walk up... More
