What a great place!!!! A review of SpringHill Suites Virginia Beach Oceanfront
This hotel just opened a few days before our stay. I was nervous about there being some opening week glitches, but for the most part everything about this place was fantastic. The rooms were spacious - we had a double-double 1 bedroom. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The decor is modern, bright and cheerful, although I overhead some older guests saying that they thought the color choices were "garish". We found it perfect for an oceanfront hotel - very beachy. The lobby is large, bright and full of comfortable seating and a large screen TV. Of course the view is perfect - I think all rooms are oceanfront. There is an indoor pool and large spa, an outdoor pool and hot tub too. These were well used, but never over-crowded. This hotel is very family-friendly and family oriented. It is therefore a bit noisy, but not in a bad way. The outdoor tiki-bar resturant was not open, although every day we were there they promised it would "open tommorrow". (It never did.) The beach in front of the hotel was VERY crowded the entire 5 days we were there, but this was not just at this hotel. There are lots of things to do in VA beach, great resturants and shopping. We enjoyed watching the pirate ship go by our hotel several times a day. We also saw lots of dolphins right off the beach. Breakfast (included in price) was served every day with lots of choices - typical cereal, fake eggs (yuk), biscuits, bagels, sausage, fruit, toast, pasteries, and make your own waffles (yum). A bit crowded at peak times (9:00-10:00), but a great amenity overall.
I would definately reccommend this hotel for families or those who need extra space. We will be back!
