Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel
first rate resortfrom gdrvasc
The room is large with a great bed, 42" plasma TV in room and smaller LCD in bathroom. Double headed shower.
Beach is at doorsteo and a large public park next door is just off the outside Catch31 restaurant which has three fire pits roaring at night so you can have dessert under the stars.
The inifinity roof top pool is cool but the views are awesome. It is a bit small but good to cool off in. The indoor pool is quite warm but also on the small side, the only criticism I have.
All in all, you can't do better than a stay here.

Nice hotel, needs better servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The big dissappointment is that the customer service could use some renovations. Not one person, save a server in the Catch31 restaurant, was smiling and personable. Everyone seemed to dislike their jobs. Our check in was very slow. We had arrived around 3pm, and was told our room was not ready, to come back a little later. So we checked in our luggage with the bellman, and headed off to the bar to wait for our room. We returned to check in at 4:30pm, and waited 20 minutes in line, then I had to wait another 20 minutes to get a bellman to retrieve our luggage. There were not enough people working either the check-in counter or bellman counter. From there the service did not improve.
For example, I was told the breakfast buffet was open until 11am. We get there at 10:40, and was told we would have to order off the menu, that the buffet was closed. Since I was using a HH certificate, I was told it would not cover any menu items, just the buffet. So we had to rush up to get the food before it was taken away. The breakfast buffet had a limited offering. No waffles or pancakes, nor any made to order omlets. What they did have was fairly tasty.
Overall, I would not spend the money required to stay at this Hilton, unless they are able to bring the customer service up to standards.
Beautiful Roomfrom Kit25
Bathroom: fixtures were beatiful, althought the bathroom was a bit small. Shower is big and gorgeous but I missed having a tub and the only place to hang anything - wet suits or dry towels- is on one rack in the back of the enclosed shower - not a good setup.
The pool is cool to look at (infinity edge pool on the roof) but so small it is almost non functional - and way too cold to swim in April, wish it was heated! The indoor pool is also small and shallow. It is very windy on the rooftop at times. We didn't have kids with us, but not a good set up for kids unless they are quite young..
Our stay was for R&R. The beauty of the room, the view, and the lovely decor of the hotel and good service made it worth it to us, but I wouldn't say this is a great place for families with active school age children.

Enjoy the view from Virginia Beach Hilton Oceanfrontfrom A TripAdvisor Member
As far as amenities go, I was checked in at the main lobby - contrary to the separate check in area indicated per in-house reservationist. This was no big deal, as check-in was swift and polite. My only suggestion here would be to have had more of an orientation to the hotel. For this, I turned to the guest services book in my room.
My favorite things about the VA Beach Hilton Oceanfront were: the view, a chaise lounge on my balcony, the complimentary continental breakfast in the "club" lounge on the 20th floor, the luxurious linens and thirsty towels, the oh-so-comfortable king size bed, and Starbucks inroom coffee. Oh yes, the fireworks display too, was a nice touch on the eve prior to my departure. As far mechanical issues within the room, the air conditioner was noisy - and it got quite cold in the room - but it worked! Yet, when adjusting the temperature to warm things up a bit, the room became stuffy. The ceiling fan helped for air circulation. The horizon pool up top was really pretty and the view was great.
Hotel staff was very pleasant and professional. Housekeeping responded to my requests for additional coffee and creamer to be left in the room. Which I find that anywhere you stay and/or dine while on vacation, simple kindness and respect towards the staff gets the traveler much farther than a haughty attitude of entitlement.
I dined at other (favorite) restaurants on Atlantic, so did not try the food service other than the continental breakfast - of which there was plenty to choose from.
Something rather excessive in my particular room were the small color TV set mounted on the bathroom wall and the telephone installed on the wall next to the toilet. What the bathroom really needed was better ventilation since there was no ventilation fan - seems as though engineering and design priorities were a bit misguided.
Indeed I would stay here again, no qualms at having the same floor and same room. I hope that the newness and comfort levels can withstand the heavy tourist volume enough so that it won't all too soon show signs of wear and tear as so many of the beachfront hotels do on the resort strip.
Top Local Tips for Virginia Beach
Ho-Hum If you already reside in a state with fantastic beaches like Florida, then the beaches here aren't anything special. But if you are from the Midwest or Northeast, then you'll love Virginia Beach!
family friendly restaurants with good food & prices Nearby restaurants with good prices, good food and good atmosphere for young families: 1) Pi Pizzeria- right across the street from Hilton 2) Tautogs-great seafood in an converted beachhouse-short walking distance from Hilton; great atmosphere, not stuffy 2) Purple Cow-50's style diner which serves a "purple milkshake" that turns your tongue purple-1/2 mile drive from Hilton but plenty of free parking.
Bring Your Rollerblades! Bring your rollerblades! The boardwalk on Virginia Beach is the best for rollerblading! The boardwalk is smooth, paved and flat. It is never too crowded for rollerblading on this boardwalk.
