Rated 2 out of 5 by runnergirl21 Do not recommend
At 8pm my room was not ready (check-in was at 3pm). I did not receive any assistance from the hotel staff, so I had to contact a Sheraton manager who was not even at the hotel to receive assistance and he had to contact the service manager on my behalf. I finally had a room at 9pm. The shower was gross and the drain was slow, leaving you to stand in a pool of water when showering. Nothing spectacular about the room. It was very warm and stuffy. The air conditioner was not working well. Although it's a smoke free hotel, as soon as you walk out the door, there were consistently a line of smokers within one foot of stepping outside. So you had to walk through a cloud of smoke to get out the door and stand in it while waiting for the valet to retrieve your car.

The hotel was clean and neat. The staff was nice but did not follow thru on promotional offer that I had which included 2 coke beverages that was never bought to my room as promised. Actually the promotion would have been overlooked entirely had I not asked about it

1) No working ice machines on ground or second floor.
2) We were under impression that outside pool was heated and opened. No where on the Web Site did it state that the pool is not open until after Labor Day.
3) Parking situation bad enough have to pay to park let alone walk to and from parking facility! Pay parking should be posted on Web site its a bad situation but it is worse getting blind sided.
4) Not a fan of animal friendly, goofball next door had three dogs, barked every time We walked by the door!

The girl making the omelets was incredible! She had a line of about 6-7 people and had three omelets going continually for a long period of time. This is not an easy job, but she kept everyone moving along quickly, and made a wonderful omelet.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was pleasant and bright and cheery. The restaurant was rather pricy but it had a nice bar area to relax in after traveling.
The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating.

Reservation made as a group/conference member, but actually not recognised so the rate was higher than expected. The rest was OK

Rated 2 out of 5 by JGreg The hotel needs improvement
I was very surprised and disappointed by this property. My room did not have a pen and pad of paper (which I needed), the closet door was broke, there was no room service menu in the room, the room was poorly cleaned (hair on the commode and in the shower, water stains on the faucets), and the maid knocked on my door in the morning and woke me up even though I had a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door.

Rated 2 out of 5 by exhausted0514 potential for greatness
I found the desk staff to be indifferent to my party as well as others seeking to check-in or check-out.
I had a daytime layover and the housekeeping staff was again, exceptionally loud. Banging doors, turning up the tv's in the rooms they were cleaning, talking loudly to each other down the halls and talking on their cell phones. I have experienced this same issue at this property in the past. Please understand that some of your guests are sleeping during the daylight hours.
I called guest services and the operator five times before I could get someone to answer the phone and set up a wake up call.
The pool area is nice. The restaurant staff were helpful and friendly but the food was just ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CigarBob Wonderfully appreciative of their Platinum guests
Stayed in late February, 2014. Booked a king room on club floor and was upgraded to a club suite which is huge. This appreciation goes a long way in customer loyalty and I woul dlike to thank the staff and manager of the Sheraton Norfolk for going the extra yard!

Rated 3 out of 5 by lupe Disappointing
We requested an upgrade to 10th floor. The room was dusty and the bathroom was dirty. We were moved across the hall. This room was a little cleaner. But, the mattress sagged on the left side.
The lights in the bathroom can use a lower wattage bulb. It is too bright and blinding especially at night.
The club food was more like what is available in lower grade hotels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruce64 Sheraton Waterside
We stayed on a Friday night during Harborfest. The entire stay was a great experience. At check-in we were given a restaurant voucher for an excellent restaurant within walking distance. We enjoyed seeing all the activities going on with Harborfest. Our SPG Gold status was recognized and rewarded. We had a beautiful, large corner room on the 9th floor with a view of the entire harbor. We will definitely try to stay here again when we can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ARoomwithoutAView Sheraton Waterside Norfolk
I booked a room with the water view and paid extra when checking in I was told that all the rooms have been assigned and in return I received a room with a view of the back and dumpsters. The front staff was not very accommodating. I called for extra towels, took over an hour to receive after calling again. The overall experience with the hotel was okay.

I was showering and the water in the tub is not draining! I thought i booked myself a suite! But i was placed in a standard room. The bathroom were really small. The continental breakfast were terrible, there was no food and the coffe machine was messed up. FD comp us with a $30 but it was terrible, I would expect something better than this one!

The room was very clean & very quiet. The buffet breakfast we had in the restaurant was wonderful with great service(lots of choices).
We have stayed here 6 times in the past 3 years & this stay was by far the best. The new management has made changes that really make this fine hotel special.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GChambers This is a Sheraton???
Wow where do I start... Pros: Location Cons: Painfully slow check-in due to lack of desk clerks and no management visible; guest rooms not ready on time (it was 10pm and had to wait an hour for a clean room); valet parking is $22 per day SURPRISE!!! If you want to walk 2 blocks away you can self park for $8 what a deal! a/c in room kept it barely cool enough to stay in room and I was in the prestigious 10th floor... ummm yeah; 10th floor "suite" not worth the money no fridge, small tv, very blah... can do much better in a regular room at most other major chains; 10th floor breakfast was a joke... completely understaffed and little available to eat. Lady working the breakfast room did not have a clue as she was busy replenishing the coffee cream while there was nothing to eat and a room full of pretty upset people (I paid extra for this???); everytime I walked past the front desk it was basically pandamonium with no management in site... long lines full of upset people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie31 This hotel had excellent staff
My friend and I were so impressed with the staff at this hotel. Your reservationist, Shree, could not have tried harder to get us a good room. My hamstring was pulled loose before we came so I could not hardly walk. It was my friends birthday and I planned this for her. MI MI Wldeman, your restaurant supervisor was one of the nicest people we've ever met. Our servers had so much personality and did an amazing job serving us. We never ate anywhere else while we were there. Your staff in the Club lounge were friendly and helpful. Your staff made our trip one we will never forget.You are to be commended on you selection of staff. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! The room was excellent also!!!Accommodations were top of the line!!! We cannot wait to get to come back. We want to bring some of her grandchildren next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mil247Traveller GOOD AND BAD: ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
The hotel is quite nice. Although arriving around midnight, I was greeted by a parking attendant who offered valet parking. I stayed at the 10th flr, which is normally reserved for their preferred members, it has a very nice view of the waterfront. I did not know there was a separate snack/breakfast room in that floor until the last day, as the hotel front desk did not mention it when I checked in.
The only two things that disappoint are 1: There is no WiFi in the rooms- the ethernet cable and wired connection does not work at times. 2: Even though the toilet/bath is upgraded with cabinets/storage- the hotel skimped on the commode, using a small rounded type instead of the elongated type- which is too small for comfort.
Breakfast area has great view, breakfast is adequate but food tastes bland- could be better. For govt/mil travellers: The hotel govt rate is higher that what is allowed in DTS, either pay out of pocket or get authorization from your supervisor/ chain of command.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dee50 Hotel dirty, staff unfriendly
The room was not very clean. It was dusty and there was something in the toilet when I checked in. The housekeeping staff were unfriendly and did not smile or greet when I walked by. The staff at the desk when I checked in were OK, but not up to the standards that I would expect. Not impressed at all!

Waterside is located in an area of restaurants, shopping, and tours on Navy ships. Very pleasant! Staff is VERY helpful -- especially with personal request we made. Only one problem -- wi-fi in the rooms. Internet in the lobby was sketchy at best and not convenient. Today's guests travel with laptops!

I was dissappointed with the hotel. It was quite noisey--people opening and closing doors all night. I am a sound sleeper but it was very loud. I also had big problems with my key. I had to go to the desk 3 times to get it reset--very annoying and time consuming. The parking was too far away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DD701 Excellent setting and location
We were there for a Navy reunion. Excellent location and great view of the river activity. Good value for the high quality of the facility. Very clean and polite staff.
The only negative is the lack of cordial and prompt service and price of food in the dining room for breakfast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SteveAJGKDH Not worth the money
We had to pay to park, pay for internet service and pay for breakfast after we already spent alot of money on the room. I will never stay here again as I can spend less money somewhere else and get everything included and the room, staff and cleanliness will be the same.

You can't beat the location of this hotel for a wonderful family getaway! It's right on the harbor which means plenty of boat and ship watching, close to great restaurants museums and historic Ghent district. What makes it so wonderful thought is the friendly staff!
