Hilton Garden Inn Virginia Beach Oceanfront
Ranked #2 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

The Hilton Garden Inn Oceanfront is brand new. The staff is brand new. The rooms are brand new. The hotel restaurant isn't even open yet (or bar. In fact, there is no alcohol available). On the other hand, everything is brand new.

My family enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room overlooked the ocean and had a small balcony with plastic chairs. The view was fantastic! The hotel is mere steps from the ocean and boardwalk. The hotel pool is heated and in/out. A convenient walk across the street is ice cream, restaurants, and soda/beer. Everything is reasonably priced. The Neptune statue is a short walk away.

The hotel breakfast was actually really good. The staff is very eager and pleasant.

A very good hotel and I would not hesitate staying there again.

p.s. Two lounge chairs and an umbrella was $36 on the beach. That and a cooler of water/soda entertained our family for the day.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

Great place to stay. Excellent location and it is brand new. Highly recommend this place as it has wonderful sun deck, right on the beach and rooms, lobby, overall hotel is the best on the beach. Pool was heated and rocking chairs facing beach were fun to relax in.

We had reserved the 3 rd floor for family and friends coming in from out of town. The moment you enter the hotel you realize that it is an above standard hotel. The hotel has a modern feel with spacious rooms and wonderful 3 rd floor sundeck with cushioned furniture where we were all able to gather and enjoy the ocean. The pool is awesome and was enjoyed by both kids/adults. The indoor pool has a rainfall and the outdoor pool has lounge chairs in the water. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and anything we needed. The friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, pool, and restaurants make this hotel a must to stay at!

Beautiful hotel and staff new and friendly. They went out of their way for our stay. Moved our room when tv didn't work due to being so new. Booked on the drive to the beach and was very pricey but had a great stay and loved the location.

Room Tip: Comer suites are large for family

WHAT A WOW FACTOR HOTEL!!!! My husband and I have been watching the progress of this beautiful brand new hotel for a year from our home in Fruitland,MD via the live webcam on the hotel website. We really wanted to stay here for our anniversary but it was not opened yet. One evening we were eating at Big Italy (across the street) and was standing on the sidewalk amazed
at the sight of such a beautiful and inviting hotel. We watched the workers move furniture inside the hotel and my husband yelled across the street to a man " how much longer"?? The man walked over to us an introduced himself. He was the Chief engineer of the hotel Tim. we must have talked for 20 minutes with 100 questions and he was happy to answer any thing we asked. About that time came along a car entering the Grand entrance area and Tim said " that's the owner Bruce, come on I will introduce you to him". Being a little apprehensive Tim assured us that he would welcome us in and enjoy hearing how we have been following the progress of his hotel. When we entered we both stood there" in awe" WOW!! All we could do is take in what a breath taking palate of beauty. This entrance way rivals any 5 star hotel that would be in Las Vegas. This new Hilton Garden Oceanfront is by far the most creative and modern luxurious Hotel I have ever seen. Believe me I am a huge believer in Hilton garden hotels when I take my family on vacations. Anybody who stays at this hotel will agree that there is nothing "cookie cutter" at all about this property. When they built this hotel they had to have a vision that this Hilton garden would be a new HIGH standard that you can only experience and come to expect from the Hilton name. Upon entering Tim introduced us to the front desk attendants who graciously welcomed us to the new hotel. I explained to them that we come down every year to Virginia beach for our wedding anniversary and had been trying daily to book our 6 night stay for months. Unfortunately we missed the grand opening by 7 days and stayed at a nearby hotel which was also nice. After talking with the staff they introduced us to Bruce who shook our hands and also welcomed us to his hotel and told us to "please feel free to stay and look around all you want". On his way out he even wished us a very happy anniversary! Although we didn't walk around everywhere we were attracted to the indoor / outdoor pool .This pool is without a doubt the coolest I have ever seen.. There are floating lounge chairs that are actually built in the pool as well as the awesome ceiling water fall that is on a fifteen minute timer. Maybe the thing that impressed me the most was the handicap friendly design. My husband being recently disabled could actually enjoy his self along side of me instead of sitting on the sideline watching me in the pool. Being hit at the age of 40 with a rare auto immune debilitating disease affects his daily activities and limits his ability to enjoy even the simplest things anymore. This was only the 2nd time in 6 years that we have been able to vacation verses him undergoing surgeries on in the hospital. Whoever designed this pool definitely had the handicap people in their heart. There is a built in bench ( so to speak ) around the pool so they can sit in the water and actually enjoy the water and interact with their family. As my husband said " it would almost make me feel like a normal man again". It was getting late and we thanked everyone for their hospitality ( especially Tim ) and headed back to our hotel. As I write this review for a hotel we haven't even stayed at we absolutely know that that this our dream vacation for next year and several years to come. Alot depends on our financial situation due to my husbands ongoing battle with healthcare expenses being so costly, but weather you are healthy or not you must enjoy every day that god gives you. My husband grew up surfing in ocean city md up into his late 30's until he was hit will his illness. He has always said that there is tranquility in the ocean and at the beach. You just have to relax and listen to the ocean. All in all, we are confident that the new Hilton Garden Oceanfront on 33rd street will be not only the number 1 hotel in Virginia beach but may be the start of a new Hilton era. Fingers crossed, hopefully we will be able to afford to spend our next year's anniversary in this one of it's kind Grand hotel..

Booked this and was a little weary; just opened 22 May and there were no reviews or pics. However I can honestly say I couldn't be more impressed. We frequent Hiltons all over the US and this one is definitely on par with the best (especially for a Garden Inn). Great location; a little further down from the I64 entry so the beach is not packed. Staff was outstanding during check-in (I can't remember the front desk manager's name but kudos to him). I was really surprised at how smooth everything was running given that it has only been open 3 days. As previously mentioned, all* rooms are oceanfront.
