Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront / N 37th St
Probably best in VA Beach for now
Stayed in June '04. Nice family hotel with all necessary amenties. Nothing fancy. Stayed in a king suite which was narrow but spacious. Staff put us in the wrong room (double suite) initially, but made the correction quickly upon notification. Exercise room is very small. As a comparison, we stayed in the Holiday Inn Suites on the north end two years ago, and found the Marriott to be much cleaner, and the staff to be much friendlier and responsive.
A Truly Incredible Hotel
The Courtyard is a magnificant hotel if you are looking for family fun, as well as a clean, spacious environment. My family and I stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed the service, clean area, pools, fitness centers, and wonderful restaurant located right off of the lobby. No matter what room you happen to receive you can be sure you will have an awesome oceanfront view with the beautiful sound of waves crashing in the distance. Another plus of the Courtyard was that it was located at the northern end of Virginia Beach, the cleaner, quieter end. Since I have two young twin girls, it was a much better environment for them to stay in. They loved the pools (indoor and outdoor) as well as the jacuzzi. There is a trolley stop directly across the street, which makes it a very accessible stop to reach all of the stores, restaurants and activities available along the entire strip of Virginia Beach. Overall, this was the best hotel experience I've ever had. My family was pleased and the hotel was a blast. I would reccomend anyone to stay here who is looking for one of the best vacations of their lives.
A Happy Camper
Having spent many hours researching hotels and being very fussy about where we stay, I was really happy with my choice. We spent four days here beginning Labor Day and could not have been happier. We're always willing to take our own bags and had no trouble getting an elevator. I am always particular that the room should be quiet, clean, and up-to-date. Everything was to my liking. We took the trolley to the center of the boardwalk to walk out onto the pier only to find that you had to pay. Looked for an eating place but none looked very appealing.
Lots of strange looking people hanging around there, so we walked back to our hotel and ate there. Had a wonderful meal and was so thankful our hotel was at that end of the boardwalk. We will return next year and stay at the same place.
Clean and sufficient, above the rest
Warning - your Marriott Rewards membership gets you little here, as their "late" checkout privilege means NOON! They are eager to get you out of the hotel in the morning. Extending it to 1 pm meant talking with the supervisor.
However, it is the newest and best hotel on the beach. Clean rooms, no smelly mildew as you would expect from older beach hotels. The elevators aren't that bad, but we were on a low floor.
I would stay here again, and I saw some of the other dives on the beachfront, and was very happy to be staying where I was. Free parking too.
Get a low room or wait for elevators
stayed here August 19-20th, First impressions are hard to overcome, No Bell service unless you beg, As I had to park car, my wife struggled with the luggage and the Person outside, not sure what his duties are just watched, then when we checked in, they informed us of that a beach umbrella was $25 a day, so we didn't even ask about chairs. Then the elevator wait started, imagine 2 elevators for the entire hotel including staff. Thank goodness we were on the second floor. We used the stairs. The room was clean and the views of the ocean with the dolphins going by every morning were great, and the outdoor pool is nice. So if you go bring your own beach umbrella and chairs, or you can buy them down there, 100s of places to buy things. Great Golf courses all with easy driving distance. The beaches are really nice and clean.
BUT $199 for a hotel I really expected better service, or at least some, and do you really want to spend half your vacation waiting for Elevators?
Stayed here in January 2003. We had a spa room which was wonderful.
Very relaxing, nice getaway in the winter. Good rates during the winter months. The hotel breakfast bar was very good and worth the price. Room was clean and like new. Beautiful pool even though it was too cold to swim!
We stayed at the Courtyard Oceanfront North in July 2003. Our 10th floor suite was in excellent condition, and had a great view of the beach & ocean. The outdoor pool is really nice, with a lots of rocks & waterfalls. The only problem we had with the hotel is the lack of a service elevator. All guests and employees had to use the 2 elevators, and there were always lines and waits for them. Being on the 10th floor, we depended on them. But, that was the only problem we had there. I would reccommend staying at the Courtyard Oceanfront North.
My family stayed at this hotel after checking out of the Dunes (it was disgusting). We did not have a suite but our room was very spacious and VERY clean. Our view of the ocean was perfect for watching dolphins when the kids were taking a nap. The outdoor pool is also awesome! My 5 year old absolutely loved the pool. The staff was extremely friendly, too. It's definitely not a cheap place to stay, but it's well worth it.
On rainy days, there is a small indoor pool, too.
My next trip to VA Beach will be at this hotel.
This was the our first time in Virginia Beach and this hotel was one of the many parts that made it great. The hotel was clean and the service was good. The tropical pool outside is spectacular and there was even a mini bar. The only thing that would make it better was if it were heated. Even the indoor pool is nice when it is too cold or stormy outside. The hotel rooms were very clean and the view from the 11th floor was great. There were only two problems. There are only two elevators and both the maids and vacationers had to use them. Then one night we tried to order room service and they had closed at 10. But overall I'd give it 5 stars.
VA Beach 37th St. Courtyard is a Wonderful hotel!!
My husband and I spent two nights at the hotel in March 2003. The rooms were clean, the view was excellent and the breakfast was delicious! The room rate was great too! We felt blessed to stay in such a beautiful hotel for the amount of money we paid! We don't plan on staying anywhere else in the future!

... streams. The woods are hemlock and rhododendron, can you imagine this view in the spring. Waterfalls, there are hundreds splash over rocks to cascades that I am sure thunder over the cliffs when in full force. I am glad we veared off our route to see this area. I am sorry there is no photo but ice conditions did not allow the opportunity.

A year or so ago, a friend and I talked about starting a blog detailing our travels together. We were sitting in a Pittsburgh restaurant with our husbands brainstorming ideas on a napkin. I came home and created this blog... and then did nothing about it. Never wrote anything.

During the trip down anything that wasn't fastened down below ended up on the floor in the salon. Left Annapolis at 2 Monday and arrived at Top Rack Marina at about 2 this afternoon. Rewarded ourselves with a great dinner out at the Amber Lantern Restaurant. Early to bed. Up at 5:30 tomorrow to get underway at first light.

Drove along the beachfront which reminds me a bit of Durban beachfront of old. Long sandy beach with lots of beach shops and restaurants. After driving around for a bit we decided to go to Lynnhaven Mall. One of the largest malls on the East coast.
