Won’t be going back soon
Not a good experience. Unfriendly front desk. Very sterile enviroment. Road work made it very difficult to locate entry way.

Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel, Portsmouth
Favorite hotel in Norfolk!
Stayed here two years ago and the hotel, staff and service was so exceptional we had to come back. Was treated once again to the same outstanding level of service. The hotel is upscale without being stuffy. The rooms are nicely appointed and always very clean. We celebrated New Year's with our son who's in the Marines in the hotel lobby bar with our new friend and one of the best bartenders ever, Anthony. He was so attentive and cordial as well as an expert at his craft. While we didn't eat in the hotel restaurant this go round, I have to assume it is still at it's high standards with quality food and outstanding chefs and wait staff. The breakfasts here are outstanding. Great stay once again. We'll always stay here when we come back to Norfolk!

Hotel very dated. Would be a nice place if they renovated.

Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel, Portsmouth
Nice staff. But expected more for the cost
The bathroom was not 100% cleaned it had urine stains on the floor around the toilet. A little shocking that they wanted you to pay an additional 14.95 for breakfast especially when you paid over 200 dollars for the room
