Walking with Dinosaurs - help

I have tickets for the Walking with Dinosaurs show at the Scope Arena next weekend. Any suggestions on good hotels nearby. We don't mind driving to the show if there aren't nice hotels.

Also, we've never been to Norfolk, any suggestions on what else to see or do? We're driving down Sat am, show that evening back to Northern VA whenever on Sun.

Thanks for the advice!

Downtown Norfolk has 2 Marriotts -- the Waterside Marriott and a Courtyard Marriott. Also there is a Sheraton Waterside. Closer to Scope is the Radisson. I don't know the reputation of the Radisson, but the Marriotts are very good.

Other things to do -- how about Nauticus and Battleship Wisconsin. Or a harbor tour on the Carrie B (you'll get to see battleships and attack subs as well as the city skyline from the water). If you like old houses, the Hunter House Victorian Museum is wonderful as is the Moses Myers House of the late 1700s. Norfolk Zoo is small but worthwhile.

Thanks for the hotel and things to do info. By any chance, do you know which is better of the 2 Marriotts? I'd like to get into the Embassy Suites in Hampton, but it's all booked up. Just my luck!
