When I used to live in norfolk I was invited to Varia by a good friend. I had no idea about this amazing restaurant that was located in the Hilton. We recently hosted a conference at Hilton The Main and it exceeded expectations! Look no further, this hotel is the heart of downtown Norfolk. Everyone of our participants raved about the great food and convenient amenities. Though we were a small group, everything was handled professionally. We will now plan to convene here every year. Thanks to Crystal M. and the entire team for their excellent work!

Hotel's Favourite
That was my second stay at for business. I was ecstatic to hear that you are now providing daily room cleanings!!! Finally hotel that is not using Covid as an excuse for not providing a service. Bravo! Bravo! The location of the hotel super. Downtown and has great river views. Occasionally U.S. Navy provides you with entertainment with flybys by various Navy and Marine helicopters. Call it the sight and sound of Freedom. Room was clean and well maintained. While I was there I ate at both Saltines and the Grain. I would highly recommend both places. Also the happy hour drink specials at saltines can’t be beat!! I didn’t counter one issue during my stay. But I was amazed at the speed and professionalism which it was handled and corrected. Another great day have a great hotel.

My family stayed here four days while visiting Norfolk for my son’s rehearsal dinner and wedding. Let me begin by saying the property far exceeded all expectations on almost every level and metric. The lobby and facilities were extremely well appointed, modern, stylish, and aesthetically pleasing. We booked 2 of the full-river-view king suites. What was really neat about this configuration, is that we were able to get adjoining suites – which made our stay feel very homey. The rooms were stellar. Modern décor, well thought-out generous usb ports everywhere, and a modern tv and entertainment interface were par for the course. As diamond honors members we enjoyed super-high-speed WiFi in every corner of our rooms, and throughout the property. The view of the harbor was a true delight. My wife and I had reserved the American Rover Ship to serve as the venue for our son’s rehearsal dinner. It was framed dead-center in our picture frame wrap around floor to ceiling windows. As far of the amenities go, there were many activities in which one could engage. I swam with my grandson in the indoor pool – which was great. There are a number of indoor and patio games to try at the onsite restaurant, “Grain”. Onsite dining options are many and varied. You will find that the 3 onsite eateries are among some of the top rated in all of Norfolk. The food and service were top-notch and certainly rank among the top dining experiences that we have ever enjoyed onsite at ANY Hilton property. Finally, let me address the staff. We found from the first moments we arrived a welcoming team, who instantly made us feel at ease, and confident that all of our impossible needs were about to be met. The leadership team is clearly setting a top-down example and set of expectations that is demonstrated in the superior service we received from everyone from front-desk staff to housekeeping. I specifically want to call out Tamika and Monte’. The dedication and attention to detail that they demonstrated was truly something special. I can’t begin to recommend this Special Hilton Property enough. We can’t wait till our next trip to Norfolk, and look forward to staying at The Main.

Everything was easy and excellent; The VIEW WAS INCREDIBLE DAY AND NIGHT! No issues, room immaculate, friendly staff. No complaints. Bathroom was super clean, fast hot water, lovely amenities. I wish I had more time to visit the restaurants but I didn’t - perhaps next time!

It was a pleasure to read your comments about our property! We are very fortunate to be centrally located in downtown Norfolk, it makes it enjoyable for our guests to be able to view the river from many places on property as well as enjoy all the Norfolk has to offer. We look forward to serving you again soon.

The property is beautiful. Rooms are large and very clean. Parking is simple, with multiple city garages nearby ($13 per 24 hours). But there are two major annoyances that keep me from recommending this hotel. The Wi-Fi is capped at under 5 Mbps. This is purposeful to get you to buy a premium plan. The hotel is new, so infrastructure shouldn't be an issue. It's just a money grab. I'd gladly trade my daily meal credit for fast Wi-Fi that keeps up with Teams/Zoom calls and allows for Netflix in the evenings. Also, housekeeping did a good job. But this is one of those hotels where the housekeeping manager knocks on your door at exactly 11:01 am just to make sure you are checking out (yes, checkout here isn't noon). That's just annoying for no particular reason and feels like a cheap motel. A few improvements and this could be a 5 star property.
