... holding up here waiting for a weather window Saturday morning. There is a low approaching Cape Hattress/Cape Fear that is bringing 30-40 kt winds, gusts to 50 with 10-15 ft seas. Fortunately it is nice and comfortable inside with the three heating units running. This also gives us time to go over the boat in greater detail to ensure that everything is ready. With 3 guys on board the boat is looking like a bachelor pad.

All the questions become whispers in the back of my mind as I think of all the things I will see, the people I will meet, and the fun I will have. That trumps all!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront
We just returned from 5 nights at the Hilton Oceanfront, our feeling is a bit mixed, so let me just list the pros and cons. We went with our two boys, ages 2 and 4. Let me first say that it becomes obvious when you arrive that the main focus on this hotel is conferences and meetings, there were two big events going on when we were there, and most of the guests seemed to be there for those events, rather than families on vacation like we were. We didn't see very many kids at the hotel.
Catch 31 - Terrible
Just got back from breakfast at Catch 31 - service was poor - the breakfast Buffet even worse. I ordered an omelette and it took almost 30 minutes to get to our table - (I had to ask for it) come to find out it was ready for almost 20 minutes and ice cold when I got it - the buffet food was just as cold. Will most definitely not go back - and we are locals. You will get better food at IHOP - trust me.
Well, the hotel is still workingout the kinks, but there were no real problems with the hotel. The service was excellent, from teh front desk, housekeeping, room service, restaurant service, engineering (plumbing snafu!), etc. The AC was a bit loud in my room and some others, they are bring back the HVAC contractors to balance the systems.
Again as stated previously this is my experience at the new Hilton Ocean Front with an arrival date of May 26th. Upon arrival we were downgraded to a lower status than orginal booked. That should have been a clue to us as what was to come. We orginally booked our room back in Feburary before the hotel opened for the club level using our Hilton Honors membership. Never have I been down graded in a hotel. When checking in and we were informed that we were moved to a lower floor no explanation could be given except sorry we don't have a room for you on the level you booked. No refund was offered till I asked if we would be charged the same price and they agreed after a consult to lower our rate $30 a day. It still was not what we had expeceted and though they did try to make amends I would be very hesitant booking here again for the club level. They did give us access to the club level but when you have to go from the 8th to the 20th floor everytime you want coffee or snacks it sure dosen't make the trip worth it since there is only three elevators and a full hotel making it hard to get an elevator.
My family and I stayed in the new Hilton Oceanfront for the week before Memorial Day. I had done a great deal of research when selecting this hotel, because it was our first trip to Va. Beach, and I had heard that the hotels were not that great. I selected this one because it was new, and because I generally stay Hilton or Marriott when travelling for work and have typically had consistently good results with both. I would echo the statements in other reviews about the magnificence of the facility. It really is a beautiful hotel. From the lobby, to the rooftop, everything is immaculate--asthetically. The service -- for the most part -- was great as well. When we checked in, we were made to feel welcome right away, and all of my requests (oceanfront, balcony, refrigerator, etc.) were fulfilled. In fact, when we got to the room, they were pulling a brand new stainless refrigerator from the box to install in the room for us. The room was beautiful, and very clean. Bedding, bathroom, furnishings, TV, etc. were all topnotch.--although, I'm not real sure why they bothered with installing large flat panel HDTVs in standard rooms when the selection and picture quality of the cable was so poor, but still...the tv was really cool. The rooftop was really the most awesome feature of the place for us. The view was great, and once the weather gets warmer, the zero edge pool will be hard to leave--it really is nice. For the most part, our experience was good,
We booked our anniversary vacation at this hotel after much research online, none of which indicated that the hotel had just opened weeks before we were there (instead of Feb. 2005, as advertised). We were looking forward to enjoying a swim in the rooftop pool, but were disappointed to find that the pool wasn't heated. Maybe drinks at the Sky Bar adjacent to the pool? No, the bar was still under construction. In fact, visitors who wanted a refreshment had to go to the restaurant in the lobby to get a drink in a plastic glass then bring it up to the pool area. We also chose this location because of the three great bar/restaurants, but were disappointed (again) to find that only one was open for business. Of the five days we were there, at least one elevator was not operating properly. While our room was comfortable, the air conditioner was extremely noisy. As the title of this review says, this will be a nice hotel, once it's done.
This is probably one of the worst Hotel experience I've had from ANY hotel chain at ANY price point; from the Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Hyatt, Sheraton, other Hiltons, down to the Choice Hotels. Here are some of the reasons why:
Last month I went to Virginia Beach with my high school's Orchestra & Band. While we were there we stayed at the newly opened Hilton Oceanfront. This hotel is beautiful. The day we got there, they just opened up the zero edge pool on the roof. This pool is amazing; it looked as though it just drops off into the ocean below. My room had a balcony up on the 10th floor that overlooked the ocean and the street below, it was beautiful. The rooms come with HD TVs and stereos. The alarm on the phone can be set every day so some that just checked out can't have it set to wake you up every day. The only problem was, there wasn't enough elevators. (Only 3) Although there were 300 of us traveling. We found our selves taking the stairs frequently. Other than the elevators, this hotel is great and the staff is wonderful. If I were ever in Virginia Beach again I would definitely stay at the Hilton again.
Fabulous place. Not enough superlatives to describe it. The entry portico reminded us of the historic mansions in Florida...or a mini version of The Breakers...columns and palms. Josh Groban songs pumped outdoors and in the lobby. We were greeted quickly and used valet parking. We were charged $5 totally...don't know how they charge exactly...you might check if that's a concern. We were there two nights and took the car out shopping one morning. The lobby is very cool and sleek...serenely simple like a restful spa but high tech and creatively done. Decor is 40s/Arts and Crafts and top-of-the-creative-line...glass mosaic work in the restaurant and lobby restrooms; lighting fixtures in the restaurant that were like sculptures...one style is tiny color bulbs at the end of intertwined copper wire; wood and silver torchiere sconces in the halls. Amazing, intriguing carpet design in the halls throughout. And I can't forget the restaurant/lobby restroom sinks. Even they made an impression...the new kind where water pours out softly onto a flat stone surface and then to the ridge along the border...I didn't look further to see where it goes from there...I just admired the sink...like that little alter boy looking for water in the sink commercial.
New Hilton Excellent
We have tried the other hotels on the oceanfront for a while. This was the first time we have tried to Hilton. We loved this place. There was a parking garage across the stret for us to park our car. When we arrived, a Bellman was waiting to take the luggage to our room. The room was large and spacious. We were on the 10th floor so we got the standard view of a regular hotel. The restaurants were excellent. We really enjoyed Catch 31, with their specials to save us money during our stay. The only minor thing ws the price. When we checked out we found our total to be for 3 nights to be really expensive. Overall a great experience.
