Rated 3 out of 5 by DM3200 Nice with some exception
Hotel itself was very nice. It was a last minute 'special price' that, as I found out after checking in, did not include free WiFi in the room. As a frequent traveler and SPG, I just do not apprecitate the nickel and dime approach. The quoted price should include everything. For that reason, I wiil avoid these hotels in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leela888 great location, but strange housekeeping practices
Came to Virginia Beach for a wedding from the West Coast and decided we couldn't go wrong staying at a Westin. The room was nice enough. Very small bathroom, but very clean. Unfortunately, housekeeping knocked at our door at 8:30 am the next morning. This was 5:30 am our time, so we were not up. The woman was friendly and nice enough to return when we left for the day and we left her a nice tip for inconveniencing her. The next day - no housekeeping at all! This was despite the fact that we were only in the room from 2:30 Pm - 4:30 Pm. Had to go in search of fresh towels ourselves. The third morning, again the wake up knock at 9 am on a Sunday despite the fact that we were scheduled to check out at noon. Never ran into this problem before.
Aside from that, everyone was super friendly, the parking is FREE and there is a lot of good options for restaurants and shopping in walking distance. Pretty lobby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mert12 Hotel's location is terrific
We enjoyed our weekend stay at the Westin.
Being in town center was terrific and romantic as well. There were so many restaurants to choose from. We will definitely return for another memorable weekend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Florida50 suprised
I was suprised at the lower level of 'polish'; the public spaces dont have the 'sparkle' of other Westin facilities I have stayed in and more effort on cleaning would benefit the hotel.

Greating us at the desk was a great experience with Calvin. Calvin explained the proccess and had us in our rom in no time.
I also asked Calvin for a resturant outside the Hotel to recommend and Calvin sent us to McCormick & Schmick's Fresh Seafood.
Calvin made our stay enjoyable and I will be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by She16 This hotel has friendly staff.
I enjoyed my one night stay. My daughter and I felt safe during our visit. Checking in was easy and painless. The only thing I was not happy about was the bathroom floor, which could have been cleaner and less sticky, but overall the room was clean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by marko45 Unsatisfactory
During check in (1pm) I was advised that my requested room would not be ready until 4pm. I was told I could get in a dream room with a roller bed around 2pm if I switched rooms and she would give me a call when it was ready. I was never called and w. n I came back at 330pm guest who came after me were checked in.
The new staff had no clue of the set up the previous desk agent had made. I had to explain to the new agent the arraingment that was made for a roller bed at check in.
When I returned to the room after a day at the beach around 8pm the bed was still not in the room. I told another desk agent I needed the bed and extra towels. The towels made it but the bed was not there again after I returned from dinner at 10pm.
The bed arrived around 1030pm after I called and was told they were out of beds for the night. I told her what happened earlier and after she made a call she was able to find a bed that I had requested 8 hours earlier. I never write reviews but felt this matter needed immediate attention.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OneHotStay Worst Stay of My Life
I was in town for a wedding that I was in. Reserve 2 nights, Saturday and Sunday. When when checked in on Saturday our room was about 85 degrees and we were on the top floor (15th). They sent someone to check it. They fix it and went on. Later that night it went out again. Once again I call the front desk about 2 am stating the issue and how me and my husband cant sleep and how hot it is. They told me there was no manager on duty, there was no more rooms, and no one could come to fix it until 7 am that next morning but they could bring me some water. WE COULDNT SLEEP AT ALL! Imagine being on the top floor no air, no windows open in a closed space. It was horrible! Called at 7 am and no one came until around 9 am. They worked on it and it worked for a few hours. By this time I was upset. I called demanded another room and my money back for the stay. They put me in a room about 1 hour before they wedding I was in which started at 5:30 pm. I was so upset. I called before check out on Monday and demanded my money back as we didnt have any air in our room for 24 hours plus!!! It was the worst experience of my life! They gave me some points for another stay they I dont want because I will never stay under this chain again. I do not think this was handled properly. I am still today fighting for my money back as this room was too expensive to have been in 90 degrees in the summer time. I was there because I was in a wedding and it was not professional how this was handled. I will continue to follow up on this!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ali14 Housekeeping needs to be trained better
The hotel is beautiful but I had to change rooms because of the odor coming from the refrigerator cabinet had a very moldy smell which started to filter into my room by day two. The hotel changed my room no problem but the new room had had work done above the bathroom door and it had not been smoothed out and repainted. This room as well had a slight odor from the refrigerator cabinet but not as bad as the first one. Both rooms had stuff on the carpet (one even had a huge fingernail) and a lot of dust. I just think that whoever is in charge of housekeeping needs to checking every room. Other than that, the staff is amazing and friendly and always said hello when you walked by the front desk. I travel for a living so that was something I don't see much.

Really nice indoor heated swimming pool
Located close to some very good dining restaurants
A 20 minutes drive to the beach and boardwalk
The only minus point was that breakfast is not complimentary

My husband and I come to VA beach every year at same time and we always stay at the Westin. Never once were we disatisfied with our stay. It makes it worth it to stay off of the beach front area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Willis99 Good value, but needs some procedural help
Clean and efficient on arrival, great check-in experience, and upgraded tona suite due to Platinum status. Ordered room service at 11:30pm and I would suggest waiting until breakfast, as it was not a good experience. I have written a note to the Food & Bev mgr on the details. Mini-fridge is either leaking or is condensating as carpet was wet near it, didn't discover it til barefoot in the morning...that will wake you up!
Staff was nice and prompt, just need a few procedures outlined better and motivate the kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teddyg great resaurants, convenient to beaches
8 miles from the beach, 10 minutes, easy commute. Many good restaurants/ bars within a 2 minute walk! Convenient for travel and shopping. Better than staying on the beach! Centrally located. One major drawback is the hotel has NO concierge desk???? Really weird. Staff was helpful otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4ckids Disappointed at first, but has some great qualities!
At first I was very disappointed! My room was not clean and overlooked the parking garage. The hallways were dirty as well. The internet wasn't working in the lobby and the room internet service was expensive and very slow. Overall, it was nothing outstanding like you normally expect with a Westin. I was so tired from the journey, that I just cleaned it myself and went to bed. On a positive note, very comfortable beds!! The location was great! Lots of fabulous restaurants, parking was free and very easy. Short 8 minute drive to the beach! I would stay here again just for the location, but they do need to work on the cleanliness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LopezFamily Comfortable, clean and beautiful
We were a family of four. Dad, Mom and teenagers. We loved the Westin at VA Beach. The location was perfect, only a 15 minute drive from the Boardwalk and I liked that we could get away from the crazyness of the beach. The concert, food and farmer's market was a great treat on Wednesday night in the front of the hotel. The fitness gym was awesome, I'll miss traveling to France on the stationary bike. Everyone was courteous and welcoming. See you next summer, for sure!

My stay was OK except for the POOL leaking and spilling into the main lobby. The Room Service reference getting the ordaer right and in a timely manner was terrible. Makes you want to go out to a 7--11 store for MILK and Cookies.
