Location was directly across from the Scope The rooMy I was given should have been closed to the public. Holes in the wall, broken furniture, sleep number beds that didn't work, bugs crawled across the pillow, Reserved a king suite and got a room with 2 double beds. Could not sleep at all. Will never go back there again.
I've stayed at the Plaza twice now, and I wanted to give them a second try before commenting. The location and proximity to downtown Norfolk's nightlife are fantastic. The comfort level, however is quite terrible. Sleep number beds are only comfortable when a) they work, and b) they have some level of cushion between you and the air bag/frame. I have a temperpedic topper on my bed at home, and both times I stayed at the plaza I awoke with terrible body pains. I had trouble sleep as I had to keep changing positions. The AC was extremely loud, but it did the job.
It was available, every other hotel for 30 miles was booked. Oh, the room was clean and the people seemed nice enough. I couldn't tell which cement block contained "the garden", but there were many foreign odors that might have been organic. My favorite part was the elevator, which while layered in shiny chrome had this very East Berlin "NOW... I AM CLOSING!" tempo to its door. That sense of being in a old soviet asylum covered in new wallpaper and marble definitely describes the experience.
