I recently stayed at the Hilton VA Beach for a friends wedding which took place on the 2nd floor. I stayed in a 2-full bed room, 4 people.
The first issue I had was the smell of the room. It had a very musty odor, like damp towels. It was difficult to regulate the temperature in the room despite the digital thermostat, which was oddly located all the way over in the corner by the window rather than somewhere more central in the room. Since a lot of heat and humidity emanates from the bathroom after using the shower and hairdrier, the thermostat would make sense near that area of the room instead and probably would resolve the musty odor.
The arrangement of the bathroom was such that the sink, toilet and shower were all behind the same door. I realize this is typically a bathroom arrangement, but with 4 individuals in one room, if someone is showering, it'd be nice to be able to use the sink without compromising privacy.
While I'm talking about the bathroom, I should mention the absence of towel racks. There were four adults, two of which were women (sometimes use two towels, one for hair), that's a lot of towels with no where to hang them! There was a two prong hook on the back of the door where the towels hang heaped together and never dry out completely.
My final complaint with the room was there was only one, small, ovular shaped garbage can between the room and bathroom. It fit basically one "to-go" bag of fast food.
For the nearly two hundred a night, Hilton should do much better! It was a beautiful location and the downstairs bar (while very expensive at $8/beer) was great with the fire pits!
If I return to Virginia Beach, I will definitely look for alternate hotel options, as this was not worth the price tag.
