Virginia Beach is an unforgettable destination, and the Virginia Beach hotels are a large part of what makes it such a memorable place to be. There are accommodations available across all price ranges, and particularly popular are the Virginia Beach oceanfront hotels, which provide guests with outstanding views of the Atlantic Ocean, miles of white sandy beach, exceptional accommodations, and superior service.
The city of Virginia Beach is a great family destination, but in keeping with the “Virginia is for Lovers” appeal, it’s also quite romantic too. For quality accommodations at Virginia Beach hotels catering to adults, there are several with convenient access to all of the local entertainment, bars, shops, and boutiques available along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk.
At the Hilton, beautifully decorated ocean view rooms provide a relaxing atmosphere at the upscale hotel. Dine in one of the hotels award-winning restaurants or relax under the stars at the rooftop bar and pool. The Hilton is convenient to local entertainment, boutiques, and a short drive to area attractions. Similarly, the Ocean Beach Club is an outstanding Virginia Beach vacation destination providing exemplary service. The hotel offers indoor and outdoor pools, a tiki bar, a spa, a fitness center, and an onsite restaurant. You can reserve either a beautifully decorated hotel or a multi-room suite for your trip.
The nicer family friendly hotels include the Sheraton, which is smoke-free, has both an indoor and an outdoor pool, and is located a short walk from the beach. There is also plenty for adults here too, such as a beach bar and grill for a light lunch and refreshments, and the Aqua Vi restaurant, which has exceptional food and great cocktails. The Best Western Plus is another appealing option, and in addition to great service, good food, and comfortable rooms, it’s right on the beach—this feature is sure to be appealing to families with children. You can soak up some sun, swim, rent a jet ski, or parasail over the cool waters, and the hotel also has a pool and game room, in addition to a fitness center.
The Virginia Beach hotels are conveniently close to 25 local golf courses, and it’s often possible to find deals that can help you save money on a few rounds during your trip. There is also the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse to visit, plus the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and First Landing State Park, which are popular for biking, kayaking, and hiking excursions. A short drive from the oceanfront hotels there are plenty of family attractions such as the Ocean Breeze Water Park, Ferry Plantation House, Virginia Zoo, and the Tugboat Museum. Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg, which are two very popular family-friendly attractions, are close enough that you can make a day trip out of either, and of course, the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, built in 1888, is a main attraction with its 28-foot walkway that provides a bike and walking area, nightly entertainment, kids’ play areas, and a variety of sculptures, all within walking distance of dozens of excellent hotels.
The best Virginia Beach oceanfront hotels range in price from moderate to luxury resorts providing travelers with the type of accommodations suited to individual budgets. The prices vary based on the season, with the peak season for tourism falling between June and August. Off-season deals are available between Labor Day weekend and Memorial Day weekend, and if you don’t mind the slightly cooler temperatures, then this is a great time for seasonal specials and getting the most for your money.
