We stayed here for a weekend trip to Norfolk. We arrived relatively late and the front desk agent was able to get us a King room rather than the Queen room that was assigned which was nice. The room was huge and well appointed. Quirky #1: There was a fruit tray already in the room, which I thought was nice, but then we got a call after about 5 minutes asking if it was in there and that they would come retrieve it, so that was a little weird. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast room was decent, but a little unorganized. I think they were short staffed making it somewhat chaotic. The buffet is pretty standard, and about $15 per person after tax. The fruit there is unbelievably delicious. To the staff's credit, there were some strawberries in our room on the second night - these apparently intended for us (and not requested to return).
Overall the stay was pleasant. I would stay again. The billing was incorrect and had to call to adjust. Which I don't mind, but it is somewhat annoying because I reminded the front desk agent at checkout to make sure it was correct and she said she would see to it.
Will stay again when we are in the area.
