      Historical Traveler Reviews Norfolk Plaza Hotel

      Absolutely Terrible

      from

      I stayed at this hotel for 2 noghts in June 2005. The hotel is in a good location near downtown and within walking distane of many restaurants and night clubs. The rooms are terrible...very small and dirty. The sleep number bed did not even work. Room service was terrible. The pool was uncomfortable as the location of it is next to the main road so it is loud and noisy...not relaxing by far. The hotel staff is very nice and they try to be helpful. The gift shop is useless and it has the oddest hours I have ever seen. I would not recommend if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing stay....and also a clean room.

      Visited the hotel for wedding and reception

      from

      Angelo greeted us by name upon our arrival. We were looking for a perfect location in downtown Norfolk for a wedding party of 200 people, mostly out of town guests. I too was concerned about the cleanliness and age. To my suprise, and believe me I was checking closely, it was very clean and as Angelo explained there were constant improvements being made upgrading the hotel. It was very quiet. It is a Historical Hotel from the 50's so there are some constant improvements that need to be done such as the entrance drive needed work as well as the pool, but the rooms were clean and fresh. (It was the Golden Triangle Hotel when I was a teenager back in the 60's) It looked like they were renovating the ball rooms (conference rooms) as well as planning another upgrade to the Enterence Hall. The staff I met were very nice. I thank Angelo for an informative tour of the Raddison. I haven't spent the night there but plan to do so in the near future. I am sure that my stay will be as pleasant as my visit today.

      Hotel not suitable for sleeping

      from

      Stay away from this hotel if you want to get a good night's sleep. Hotel puts on locally advertized bashes to attract business that go well past 1am, and make it impossible for sleep. Kids will be miserable.

      One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in

      from

      This hotel is typical of your old downtown hotels that seem to think they can continue to be poorly maintained just because they have a good location. The staff here was careless, room service was almost a joke. I ordered a caesar salad that was the size of Montana. The food was too much on quantity and not enough on quality. My room was very old, dingy smell, beat-up. The kind of room you just have to wonder how well it really gets cleaned. Like I said, the staff didn't seem to give a crap about working there. In fact, nobody in that town seemed to give a crap about living there. I was there on business and only stayed there because it was close to where I was working, but after that experience, I vowed to never stay at another Radisson again. It had "Depressing" written all over it.

      Not Very Clean

      from

      We stayed here in 2003, and the hotel has gone downhill in the past year -- our most recent stay was in August 2004. Our room for this stay was on the first floor and it was not very clean -- stains in the rugs, a small odor. Not pleasant at all -- my wife had a hard time sleeping.

      Not a lot of good hotel options in Norfolk, alas.

      Could be better

      from

      The negative reviews for this hotel are somewhat accurate. Staff is friendly but the hotel is dirty and in need of much care. Lot's of noise from partying hotel guests seem to be a regular thing here.

      Pleasant stay

      from

      After reading a couple reviews, I was skeptical about my reservations here, but was pleasantly surprised to find the accommodations to be more than satisfactory. A couple friends of mine and I stayed two nights in October '04, and enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is very central to all the activities around the Waterside area. The beds were a bit hard, but we found the accommodations quite comfortable. (We were reading that the Radisson hotel chain will soon get Select Comfort beds-what a treat!). I loved the chair and ottoman in our room! The refrigerator and microwave also came in quite handy! Our room had a wonderful view of downtown Norfolk too. We would definitely return here.

      Radisson Norfolk

      from

      I recently stayed at the Radisson in Norfolk in July, 2004 for a dance competition. This hotel was selected for the competition because of its proximity to the Hall. I was very disappointed in the hotel. The front desk staff was very professional and very courteous. However, the hotel itself was very dirty and not maintained very well by the maid staff. Some of the members in our party changed hotels because of the noise of other hotel patrons. Several members in our party, including myself and my daughter, broke out in a rash on our face/neck. We were totally disgusted with the hotel and will never stay there again. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Consider another hotel

      from

      I stayed at the Radisson in Norfolk for 2 nights in April, 04. This was the worst hotel stay I have ever experienced. The first room was so dirty and old I asked to be moved. The new room was slightly better. There was some band or something staying in the hotel during the same 2 nights, that were allowed to run the halls, knock on the doors and crank call the other hotel guest into all hours of the night. The room was old the bathroom had stained tub, toliets and sinks. I book the room on the web for 89.00, which is not cheap. I would not recommend this hotel.

      Better than expected

      from

      I visited the Radisson Hotel Norfolk Nov 26th to Nov 27th, 2003. I was apprehensive because the hotel had been the Hotel Norfolk and a Holiday Inn previously. Both times the hotel failed. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Radisson brand. I requested a non-smoking upper level room. I had a gift certificate and I paid one night. I got my upper level room and ease of check in was great. All rooms have a fridge and microwave, which is nice. The bathroom was well kept and the room is a nice size. Only negative is the restaurant b-fast buffet looks better than it taste the dollar pancakes were hard Also, after check-out the charged my card for the free night but I'm sure that will be resovled.

      Would definitley stay again and give it 3 out of five stars.

      Made it down the bay overnight

      Survived a wild ride down the bay. Some of the roughest conditions we have experienced on the Chesapeake. Big waves. 30+ kt winds and lots of driving rain. Enjoyed our new cockpit enclosures as well as the heater we installed below. The AIS system which allowed us to identify ships during the night was a big help.

      Navy ships don't use AIS so we slowed to enter Hampton Roads after sunrise. Still, with heavy ...

Distance of the passage was 660nm over 4 days, 4 hours, 15 minutes for an average speed of 6.6 kts. Pretty typical for our offshore passages.

We stayed with this model because it supported our two wireless remotes, which we considered very useful. Nonetheless, this third failure was the final incentive we needed to vow to install another manufacturer’s product during our summer maintenance period. For now we had to rely on our two handheld VHF radios which limited our radio range to ...
