Our family will be going to VA Beach in mid-July again this year. We stayed at a fabulous Courtyard on the 37th last year, but there is a new Marriott lower on the beach that we'd like to try. Has anyone stayed at the new one? Springhill Suites on 9th? Thanks for any pros/cons!
Stay at the Springhill! WE too stayed at the Courtyard on 37th for several years and then last year (because I couldn't get a two room suite at the Courtyard) ended up at the Springhill in the 2nd week they were open. It is very nice. Pros- buffet breakfast on site (included), pool is much warmer, has an outdoor hot tub and nice bar/cabana area at the pool and more seating than Ctyd, garage parking attached to hotel. Cons- not as many decent restaurants in walking distance, lines for breakfast were terribly long after about 8am, the garage was a bit of a pain (w/access cards),
Don't know about the standard rooms, but the suite was very spacious-comparable to Ctyd in size. Hope this helps!
