Awesome view of the fireworks from the 6th floor terrace. Also could have watched them from the room. Elevators were slow for the upper floors. The second floor bar was terrific! Concierge lounge was terrible at breakfast. No forks, cold food and no where to sit. Will definitely visit again next year for the fourth, but just make different breakfast plans.

If you find yourself at the Norfolk Waterfront, this is a great location. Walking distance to all the activities. Excellent Pool for the kids with great water views. We stayed here on the way to our vacation spot in the OBX and this was a perfect spot. We will come back for sure.

We are glad that you had a wonderful time during your brief visit with us on your way to the OBX. We are very fortunate to be centrally located in downtown Norfolk, which is within walking distance to all of the major attractions. Please visit us again the next time you head south on 95.

We stayed at this hotel from June 27th-July 1st, 2013. It was a very nice hotel in a great location. My two key expectations from a top hotel are a great shower and a great bed and on these two tests, the Marriott aced them. The bed was incredible, as is becoming expected at Marriott hotels and the shower had good pressure and a nice, adjustable head. (We had a little hick-up in that the tub did not drain quickly enough on the first day, but engineering fixed that within an hour or our reporting it.) My one turn off of this hotel and others of its ilk is the idea of paying for Wi-Fi. In this age, it is absurd that any hotel charges for connectivity: it is like charging for lights or TV. It is humorous that cheaper hotels like Days Inn often do not charge for Wi-Fi but more expensive ones do. OK, off the soapbox now.

This hotel has a Shula's steakhouse downstairs as the restaurant, but we did not eat there, as we have a Shula's in our hometown. The bar area of the Shula's was nice enough, but a little pricey as one might expect.

The location of this hotel is greaet with many entertainment and dining choices within easy walking distance. The breeze off the river made the weather pleasant.

I stayed one week in this Marriot which is in the center of Norfolk downtown not far away from the Nautilus museum and the waterfront. The hotel is ok but a bid outdated. A shopping mall is just opposite of the hotel.

The hotel is in a great spot downtown and easy to walk anywhere. The naval museum is blocks away as is the big mall and a metro stops even closer. Checkin was easy and the staffs very professional. The only issue we had with the hotel is our stay was in June and it was freezing everywhere in this hotel. The lobby, hallways and especially conference rooms. So be prepared unless its 100 outside. The pool is indoors but there's a nice deck next to it outside. Parking cost and I recommend the self parking in the city garage right across from it for $12 a day and it has walkway on the 3rd floor. Shulas restaurant is a really nice place and its inside the hotel. I'd recommend staying here.

I stayed at this Marriott for a conference. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. My room was just what I needed. The bed was sooooo comfortable I would have liked to bring it home with me. The only negative I found was that high speed internet was only available in your room for a fee of $9.95 per day. You could go to the lobby and it was free.

I'm a Marriott Gold card holder and stay with them whenever / wherever. Retrned to the Waterside in Norfolk, VA for the first time in 6-7yrs and wasn't disappointed. Rooms spotless and comfortable and Schula's as dependable as ever. The girls behind the bar are great as is the food and wine / beer selection. Up to standard !!

Room Tip: river frontage rooms are best
