This hotel was quite a suprise! A pleasant suprise. Hotel is five years old, but looks and feels as though it was built this year. Clean and fresh throughout the facility. Staff from the front desk to the housekeeping staff aimed to make you feel like a welcomed guest. They were professional and courteous. The hotel has a definate "wow" factor due to its location on the Elizabeth River (rooms have a view of the water). They were clean, crisp, comfortable and quiet! The common areas are well appointed and richly decorated to give you a high-end hotel feel.
Breakfast in the hotel restuarant was well above average. Buffet with made to order eggs/omlets and an extensive buffet. ($11.95) Service prompt.
Overall great proximity to the Olde Town portion of Portsmouth and a short ferry ride ($1) to downtown Norfolk (Waterside shops/Nauticus Museum). Great location, great stay...definate recommend for singles & families.
