Overall this hotel us what you expect, but the people running the hotel on easter weekend did a good job to be helpful and family friendly. We asked for adjoining rooms and they just did it, no run around or endless searching for the lost arc. We asked to keep our van near on the lower level so we could...

First, let me say that the front desk staff is great. I was also VERY impressed with the young woman who is the manager there. I saw her do things I have never seen a manager do and it tells me she is very hands on and that is impressive. I was in town for a medical procedure at a...

I stayed in Courtyard Norfolk Downtown in Nov, 2015. I accidentally left my best pillow in that hotel and the housekeeping ignored my previous several call and replied me until I complained about this to the Marriot customer service and sent it back to me immediately. And the room was not clean with bad door. Traveler should not consider that...

We were supposed to stay here 3 nights but checked out after night 1. We weren't given enough towels for our family of four. Housekeeping never showed up. We called down for the valet to get our car, yet the front desk never took action so we had to wait 20 extra minutes. We ran out of toilet paper at...

Last time I stayed here was two years ago. I said I would not return. I decided to give it another try and I actually had a better experience. I had a corner room that was nice. Sometime I will have to have someone in the hotel industry explain how the desk staff makes room assignments. The corner makes a...

We booked a night cruise and needed a close hotel near the boarding location. I booked this hotel and were very pleased. When we arrived the parking attendant were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. As we checked in we did see a lot of young kids in the lobby which had me worried, but to my surprise we...

Jst a 1 night stay, but it was a very pleasant surprise. A newer hotel within walking distance to good restaurants, bars & there is a mall across the street. It was very clean, quiet & the bed was very comfortable. We'll likely stay here from now own when we come to Norfolk. Don't sleep on this place y'all!!

Excellent, newer hotel, with very comfortable rooms and beds and, above all, courteous and extremely cordial service at the front desk and bistro. By the way, bistro menu is limited but I had a tasty burger.

The hotel is average in a global perspective, but compared to the price it is very god. The service is very good. This is much hotel for the money you pay. The room is clean and big. And you got what you need for a practical stay.

I just feel that this visit was not up to par for a courtyard Marriott stay. The staff was ok but not overly helpful. The hotel was also out of coffee packets for the in-room coffee makers and on the weekend the cafe doesn't open until later. I was in town for a series of races and had to be...
