DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Virginia Beach

Reviewed June 9, 2008

This hotel at best is average. If you are going to stay at a Hilton property, please fork over the extra cash and stay at the Hilton that is truly ocean front property. This Double Tree Property is 8 blocks away from the beach! In addition, there is NO outdoor pool. The "pool" is indoor and it looks more like a bath tub than a pool. It was hotter in the pool area than it was outside. Aside from this, the concierge constantly tries to sell time shares. This guy does not give up and he will bother you the entire time you are there. On a nice note, the rooms were very clean and the housekeepers did an amazing job of keeping our rooms clean and making sure that we had clean towels.

Stayed at the Doubletree Virginia Beach while on business for a small trade show at the convention center next door.

I did have a room at the end of hallway so it was relatively quiet.

The room was in okay shape, the bathroom could use an update.

The hotel is convenient if you have business at the convention center as it is next door and about a three minute walk, however there is really no stores or restaurants within walking distance.

If you are going to Virginia Beach on vacation I would not recommend this hotel as it is no where near the beach.

There is a restaurant in the hotel ... just average at best, however as a Gold Hilton member I did get comp breakfast buffet.

I would stay there again if I had business in the convention center.

The Doubletree cookies were good.

this hotel is very nice overall....clean rooms and great staff. biggest drawback is the location...no view of the ocean and hotel looks out over parking lots. Food (breakfast) was very good and service is quick here. would stay again!

We just returned from our weekend trip of "do we want to move here hunting" from Virginia Beach. Our first night was at a Doubletree & was set-up blind online w/ not much planning. My past experience at their hotel in Charlotte, NC was wonderful, so we thought that this would be a great place to stay. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met...
The staff were amiable and friendly, but the site, which must have had a face-lift left much to be desired. The halls were dark and dingy, due to horrible fluorescent lights, over-worn room furnishings, unfinished ceiling tiles in the SHOWER, extremely noisy H2O pipes and loud high-schoolers running up hallways. Ugh. Thank GOD the beds were comfortable.
Otherwise, I would only recommend this site b/c of it's closeness to the Convention center (as it's like 16 blocks from the beach) and the Max & Erma's Restaurant on-site. Disappointing.
P.S. Oh, yeah. We selected this site as they were to have free Internet service. Found out when we got there, that was not the case. Anywhere in the building.

We had the same type of positive experience as the previous reviewer from D.C. We booked during the Neptune Festival (we didn't realize this because we booked for other reasons) and chose the hotel based on brand and price, and relative proximity (about 2 miles) to the beach. This hotel is more than adequate -- first room assignment had smoke so we requested a different non-smoking room and were immediately placed in a spotless room that was a little better than our expectations. We got four cookies at check in and for the bargain rate we found on the internet (less than $100/night) this hotel was a good deal. We didn't use the restaurant or pool, but the restaurant appeared to attract not only hotel but also outside clientele and the pool was indoor medium sized and surrounded by glass -- appeared to be adequate and clean. We would recommend this hotel for a cheap alternative to the beach in the 3 star category of properties.

Despite all the negative reviews, our experience was very pleasant. The hotel staff was courteous and the room was very clean and comfortable. We booked at the last minute during the Neptune Festival, so we couldn't get as close to the beach as we wanted, however the hotel is easily within walking distance. The hotel has easy access to I-264, so driving to other parts of the Virginia beach area was easy. We definitely would stay there again.
