Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront Review comment: “We travelled to Virginia Beach for a field hockey competion and selected this property because of it’s great location, full hot breakfast buffet daily and the spacious rooms. The hotel and rooms were very clean. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which had a mini kitchenette that made it convenient to store snacks and beverages. The staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating – always smiling. The indoor pool was a blessing because it kept our younger daughter busy. The view of the ocean from our balcony was amazing – each morning and evening we would watch the sun rise and set! Direct access to the boardwalk made it also easy to take morning run.” Book this family hotel.
