“Venue for the TCE Career & Business Summit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This was our first time staying at this hotel and using it as a venue for our Annual TCE Career & Business Summit. Our treatment from our Friday Check-in (and our Summit guests, vendors, panelists and speakers) was extraordinary. I want to first mention the "stand out staff" who made us feel like we were royalty from check-in to check-out (Sheena at the Front Desk), Hunter in charge of Parking, Mr. Terrence Washington (night manager) and for our Summit our "banquet captain" Grant for his wonderful style, patience and true customer support for both event days, friday - Saturday. Grant was awesome!!!! It's the service....that you remember, how folks made you feel...that's what we value and paid for. . As shared, this was our first experience with the property for our TCE Event and at the end of the day all things worked out fine, our attendees were impressed.

I did have the opportunity to work with Kathryn Cyr (Sales Contact) who showed me the property, created our contract and provided follow-through for about 8 months and the day of. Dawn Roberson (Catering & Banquet Manager) who we worked closely with 30 - 45 days out to ensure event logistics etc were satisfied. Kathryn and Dawn were very responsive to our numerous emails (as a first time customer) and when there were "hiccups" with something...they both used creative measures to "uniquely satisfy" us to build a long-term relationship. We have held many business events in the past so we were not "new to the game" but "new" to working with this property and their policies.

With that being said, I would recommend this property to the business community for your professional events and without a doubt for ANY and ALL leisure travel. To the Business event manager, additional rental fees are required for linens/vending tables or staging platforms used for most summit or conference type events, so be aware of that. We are thinking about our 2014 TCE Summit event...and your property is on the top of the list for a return visit.

Room Tip: We had several rooms for our team and speakers. Oceanviews are nice (and affordable), one of our ro...

We were in Va Beach during the tropical storm with 50mph winds, 10/13. Luckily, I picked this hotel. We absolutely loved the indoor pools, jacuzzi, and gym. This is the first hotel Ive stayed in where the jacuzzi was 104 degrees, perfect, at all times. The pools were heated, but also the perfect temp, not too warm, or cool. I loved the fact that nothing is chlorinated, and they clean them with natural products. The hotel is beautiful and well run. All employees were courteous and professional. The beds were so comfortable, and loved the big, deep tub. We used the business center for our payroll, and also received faxes at the front desk. That was nice to be able to run our business from afar. All in all, perfect. I would like to see complimentary coffee and tea offered in the lobby though. Forgot to mention, there is a very cool and classy bar off of the lobby that is wonderful to sit in and have a drink. And also loved the fire pit near the pools, just gorgeous!!

Room Tip: 7th floor was a great choice, ocean front

When we arrived we were warmly greeted. The clerk informed us that we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom condo/ suite. Glad because it the master had a king bed. We had a beautiful oceanfront view, make sure you ask for a room 12 floors or higher. The room rooms were clean and the kitchen had everything you needed to cook in.
The down side, construction right next door and they start early. Self parking is about 1 1/2 blocks away and is $12.00 a day Valet parking I think was $16.00 a day. Only 2 elevators which at times you had too wait for one. The AC in the master is very loud. But overall a nice place to stay.

Hello SFK09,

I am pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us. While they are beautiful, the room type that you were upgraded into is not typically available as most are owned through our timeshare program. That being said, when the rare opportunity does present itself, we are happy to oblige requests for this room type. We do apologize for the construction noise; however, once the Hilton Garden Inn has completed construction (May 2014), there will be very little in the way of development on this side of the beach that will affect the guest experience at Oceanaire. I must make one observation regarding your post. You wrote that self parking was $12 and valet service was $16. We charge $8 for self parking and $16 for valet service. If you were charged incorrectly, please feel free to contact me at 757.213.0601 ext. 4566 and I will be happy to credit you any amount due. Thank you for your business and I hope that we have the opportunity to serve you again during your next trip to Virginia Beach!

My husband & I spent the weekend of Sept 21-23,2013 for our 6th yr wedding anniversary. We were not to pleased with the parking, the garage was a block away and you had to pay, but nevertheless that wasn't a big deal. The resort was beautiful as well as our oceanfront suite; but would have much rather had the balcony off the sitting area as well as the bedroom. The AC vent was located on the balcony & we could not here the ocean when it was running. The bed was very hard & small to be a queen size bed, but over all it was a really nice weekend.

Great hotel, very friendly staff. The suite was beautiful, very clean. The indoor pool, and fire pit was very nice. Was out there every night to relax. The children's pool is great for the kids. The view was amazing for the ocean.

Room Tip: Rooms either with ocean view or ocean front are the best.

This Hotel is very clean and nice. The staff are very helpful. I loved the Queen suite. Only thing..The queen suite does not have a queen bed, it is a standard bed. This is misleading on purpose. The view from the room which was an ocean view was wonderful. Not a lot of shopping and dinning close by. We walked several blocks to eat. Next day we drove. Parking if Valet is $16 per day. The bed and pillows were comfortable.

I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was very nice, and the price can't be beat. The amenities were enjoyable, there were 4 pools to choose from, my 5 year old enjoyed the children's pool, I enjoyed the 10th floor sundeck and the outdoor fireplace they have. Much better than the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Will stay here next visit.
