Located in the heart of Coastal Virginia near the Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk is a city of mermaids anchored by a vibrant downtown and steeped in maritime history. Home to the world’s largest naval base and the North American headquarters for NATO, Norfolk is known for its Navy presence and so much more. The city’s rich and proudly diverse culture flows through its museums, burgeoning performing and visual arts scenes and fabulous festivals.

With 144 miles of shoreline, Norfolk is perfectly situated for water activities like kayaking, sailing, boating and sprawling on the sand for a relaxing beach day. There’s also plenty to do on land, whether exploring the Elizabeth River Trail, wandering among blossoms at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, visiting over 700 species at the Virginia Zoo, cheering on the Norfolk Tides or learning about the city’s fascinating architecture or vivid murals through a walking tour.

Refined luxury and stylish comfort come together brilliantly at Norfolk Waterside Marriott. Perched in the heart of the city’s charming downtown district, our hotel is conveniently connected to Waterside Convention Center, also just moments from the USS Wisconsin and cruises on the Spirit of Norfolk. Stretch out in your well-appointed room or suite, all of which have been re-designed and offer river or city views, plush bedding and modern amenities. Challenge yourself with a workout in our hotel’s state-of-the-art gym or enjoy a swim in the heated indoor pool. Begin your day with our lobby café STEAM where We Proudly Serve Starbucks or START, our full service breakfast restaurant. Complete your day with a glass of wine, craft cocktail, and enjoy the distinctive menu in our recently opened Italian Steakhouse, Capo Capo. Plan your next event in downtown Norfolk in one of our elegant ballroom venues or on our Riverview Terrace.
