Needed to find a reasonably priced place to stay for a very short night (only 5 hours). I was able to get a room at the Doubletree for the same price as some very low end motels near Norfolk airport, so I figured it had to at least be better than that. And it was GREAT! I called for a late arrival and to ensure I had a non smoking room and the front desk person (Hannah) was beyond pleasant, to the point where I even commented on it after I hung up. Upon arrival, I was glad to see that Hannah was actually still there and let her know that I appreciated her pleasant demeanor on the phone. Of course this continued as she checked us in and gave us the fabulous cookies.
Upon reaching our room we were pleased to find nice, updated rooms (doesn't look like they were on a budget to me). I was a little concerned given some of the other reviews, but now I'm thinking maybe they reviewed the wrong place because I just didn't see what they saw.
The only slight issue we had was with the elevator, which was running EXTREMELY slow due to a power surge that kept putting them in sleep mode. This was a little frustrating when you are trying to go down to get your things after a long day, as well as when you are in a hurry to get out in the morning.
There were also a few houskeeping items that could be improved, like one phone in the room that didn't work, or cleaning the tub a little deeper or cleaning the lights in the bathroom, but these were all minor things.
Overall, this was a good place to stay for the price. Hopefully I'll be able to return again and stay more than a few hours.
