My family and I returned from Germany and chose Courtyard By Marriott for an extended stay, while house hunting. During the period of our stay, we were always greeted with friendly faces at the front desk (Shacara and Christal) If we had any issues, they were fixed immediately. The housekeeping staff were excellent. We had tons of luggage from our trip back and they always worked around it and made sure our needs were met. (Beth..Ylonda...Dawn...LaShawn). stThe Lounge/Bistro staff (Wendy and Kendrel) made wonderful food and coffee and were always so friendly each time we visited . We have two children that had to start school as soon as we arrived and being in a new area, made things stressful on the entire family, but the hotel staff went out of their way to give us directions to the schools and answered tons of questions. They also took the time to give us information on all the upcoming events in the area, so our children would have fun and be able to destress. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to VA Beach, weather it be an extended stay or just a weekend trip!!
