“Pet & People Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We brought our 40 lb dog here for some winter time romping on the beach. During the off season, your dog can frolick on the beach with you. While the temperatures weren't very high, we still managed to enjoy our stay here. We checked into a pet friendly room, with no extra fee or deposit to bring your pet here. The property is going under some renovations, but the service was not lacking. We ordered room service a few times because we had our dog with us and they often made helpful suggestions. When we ordered to go food, the bartender brought it up to our room for us!

The pool was refreshing, and enjoyable after a day on the beach and working out. The health club was probably one of the nicer hotel gyms I have seen in a while. The equipment is fairly new and is in a nice sized room so if someone is stretching you don't have to step over them.

We hope to return again, but it always depends upon the rate of the property!

Spicybdc, I’m glad to hear your dog had a blast letting loose on the beach. During the first phase of renovations we relocated the fitness facilities to our beach level for you to enjoy a run on the treadmill while looking out to the beach. We look forward to having you back again.

The hotel is located on the beach with a breathtaking view of the Ocean. My room was Ocean view. All rooms have balconies that are large. The room decor was very calming and inviting. The bed was very comfortable. The staff were accomodating and focused on making guests stay a wonderfully event. The room service was excellent and the food was great.The room service was prompt. The hotel as a whole was beautiful. I enjoyed watching the people on the beach and the ocean waves crashing to the shore. The front desk staff were very professional, authentic, pleasant, and informative. This hotel surpassed all my expectations for a comfortable stay. The free valet parking is a definitely plus. I wll stay there again on my next trip to Virginia Beach, VA. I appreciated the service provided to me.

I was so pleased with just about everything this hotel had to offer us- we are planning a return trip this summer.
First things first, as Starwood Members, you cannot beat the value for Starwood points. We were upgraded by a very nice front desk gentleman and, since we arrived in the morning, were called, as promised, when our room was ready- well before check in time.
We did meet the famous Marcus later that day, he was also a nice and helpful young man.
Location, pools, gym, room, parking- all wonderful! We did not have an opportunity to try the Aqua Vi, but will likely do so on our next visit. I also liked that there were a few kids activites. Only having one child, we look forward to letting him have fun with kids his own age when we are away and a kids club helps facilitate that.
Not a fancy place, but comfortable, and the service was top-notch. The only negative was the indoor pool and hot tub needed a little attention- not as clean as I like.
We loved our stay! See you soon!

Carebear0826, Thank you for your praises! I’m glad we were able to accommodate all your needs during our off season and look forward to having you back during the summer. One difference you will note on your return is the Aqua Vi is currently being remodeled and will have a grand reopening as Fusion! Have a great rest of you winter and we will be seeing you soon!

The Sheraton at the Virginia Beach ocean/boardwalk has a great location. My room, a traditional king, was spacious and well appointed. The doorman was very courteous and helpful on arrival. However: no hot water in the bathroom sink, the electrical outlet by the desk did not work. These two were handled the same day by pleasant staff. The "guest services" number on the in-room phone did not answer during my 4 day stay. I called the central number to report the room problems and the phone issue and was promised attention would be given. The furniture is scarred and could be touched up to good effect. Housekeeping was sloppy- bed poorly made, teas and flimsy plastic water glasses not replaced. Construction in lobby and first floor area not reported on site when made reservations. No discount given, no explanation. Restaurant unwelcoming; no one at stand, no one visible in restaurant/bar, mechanical clanging noise over the ambient music. Left immediately for off site restaurant.

Mw4_10, I want to apologize for the less than satisfactory stay that you had with us. All of your housekeeping comments have been passed along to the Executive Housekeeper to ensure that proper retraining takes place within that department. We have updated our website with a more visible announcement that shows we are currently doing renovations. We have also made attempts to contact every guest at least two days prior to arrival who have either a phone number or email attached to their reservation. If you have any more questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me at lreagan@sheratonvirginiabeach.com

We stayed here for 3 nights over Thanksgiving 2012.Like most of the hotels at OceanFront it is an older Hotel which has been undergoing refurbishment.We were assigned a room in a refurbished wing,it had a functional kitchen and a separate sitting area,a separate bedroom with a comfortable King Bed,flat screen TV in both rooms,and walk out Balcony from both rooms.Internet is extra as is mandatory valet parking.We had room service on thanksgiving evening which wasn't bad.Including Internet and parking it cost us close to $150.00 per night,not really good value for Virginia Beach in late November.

The staff were great and so friendly and helpful. I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks while I worked on the Presidential election. I worked late everyday, usually until 3:00 am, and after a long day of work I was uplifted by the generous warmth and reception I received ---Rhonda the night manager took care of every detail to make my stay more comfortable, whether it was moving my car, getting me breakfast at night for the next morning when I left at 5:00am for election day, giving me an extra wake-up call to make sure I actually woke up, and these are just a few of the things. I will never forget the great personal attention I received.

GREAT RATE! I was very pleased with the accomodations and room rate for my one night stay when I was passing through the area. The only thing that wasn't completely up to par was that I was that I felt that the sound made by the heating and air conditioning unit was a bit too loud when it kicked on. I was pleased that when I mentioned that in the survey I took online after my stay, the front desk manager responded and said she was having maintenance check it out to resolve the issue. That response, along with all the happy, helpful staff during my stay, assures that I will return next time I'm in the area. Loved having an indoor pool to relax in after a long drive in a winter month. And the bed was absolutely heavenly!

Room Tip: I was in a cabana room overlooking the pool, boardwalk and ocean! Great room!

GigiMarie_1003, I glad that you heard back from our manager we try to make sure we follow up with any concerns guests notify us of. The new cabana wing is truly amazing especially the rooms that allow you to walk straight out to the patio and pool, though it is a bit too chilly for an outdoor swim this time of year. We look forward to having you come back again soon. Thank you for review.
