Hadn't been to Virginia Beach in forever, and friends had cautioned me to try and stick close to the residential area if taking a day trip. Wanting to stay overnight for a concert, however, my college roommate and I were seeking a last-minute vacancy on an otherwise peak-season Friday night. We came upon 19 Atlantic, and took the 2 double bed room @ $179/night. When we arrived, we were excited to see that the hotel was directly across the street from the beach (and easy beach access path), but the exterior of the hotel was not exactly exciting...what were we getting ourselves into?
BOY WERE WE SURPRISED as we entered the lobby - small, but fresh and inviting. We were pleasantly greeted by the receptionist, Santiago, and he was able to arrange for a room even though @ 10 a.m., we'd arrived many hours ahead of the 4:00 check in time. We went up to our 2nd floor room and felt like we'd stumbled fortuitously upon a boutique hotel. Our room was crisp, clean, cool, inviting with the blue/green accents on the crisp white cotton duvet . I HATE hotel comforters and blankets because we all know they NEVER get washed...but NO WORRIES at 19 Atlantic!! The down comforter was enveloped in a fresh white cotton duvet...comfy and worry-free sleeping all night!
The hotel features a private roof deck for the guests, but we did not take advantage because we spent the evening at a nearby concert (11 miles from the VA Beach Farm Bureau Ampitheater). The adjacent parking lot is small, but we were able to park there upon arrival. When we returned from the concert late night, we were able to park in the hotel's secondary lot located just a quick 2 block walk up the street; our parking pass allowed us worry-free parking in both lots.
Complimentary coffee of all varieties was available in the lobby at our convenience. The room was equipped with a great TV, lamp with outlets in the base for charging your phone, a microwave and large bar fridge/freezer, tidy/modern (small, but clean) bathroom with plenty of towels, and AN ENTIRELY SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT!!!! ($250 fine for any smoking in hotel!).
WE LOVED IT and will definitely go back for our next visits to VAB.
