Virginia Beach luxury hotels can be found in relative abundance along the beach. Most vacationers heading to Virginia Beach do so in large part to enjoy the miles of beaches and all of the fun things to do on the beaches and around the city. For a city that holds a record for the longest “pleasure beach” in the world, you might imagine that there is plenty of Virginia Beach luxury lodging to cater to the masses of tourists that make the trip to this popular vacation spot each and every year, especially since the Resort Area lines the oceanfront.
The Westin Virginia Beach Town Center is among the most luxurious accommodations in this area and the generally reasonable rates give travelers even greater incentive to stay there. It is located on Commerce Street and stands out as one of the top hotels not located on the beach. It is, however, within close range of the beach and a range of activities, including parasailing, jet skiing, and snorkeling. There is also plenty of shopping and dining nearby as well as top attractions like the Town Center and Mount Trashmore. You are never far from the coast in Virginia Beach and accessing the beach is no problem from this hotel. Amenities include a spa, swimming pool, onsite dining, concierge services, and much more.
The Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront is a prime example of prime Virginia Beach luxury lodging. Situated right on Atlantic Avenue within steps of the Boardwalk and the beach, not to mention hundreds of restaurants, bars, and shopping outlets, this 21-story hotel towers over the beach and offers guests magnificent views from furnished terraces. Amenities include swimming pools, a spa, two restaurants, and direct access to the beach. The friendly concierge and guest services staff will be happy to assist in arranging dinner reservations, dolphin or whale watching excursions, or anything else you may need help with. The Virginia Aquarium, Convention Center, and Neptune’s Park are all within one and a half miles of this elegant hotel. Guests can choose from a selection of rooms and suites, most of which offer compelling views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Ocean Beach Club is one of the top resorts in the area and considered by many to be one of the top Virginia Beach luxury hotels. This is another brilliant beach hotel located on Atlantic Avenue between 34th and 35th Street, in an excellent part of town at the northern end of the Boardwalk. Pampered guests choose from single guestrooms or one-, two-, or three-bedroom suites. Besides having direct access to a pristine, private beach, which is reason enough for most people, you will also enjoy amenities such as a state of the art fitness center, an oceanfront pool and tiki bar, onsite dining, and yoga on the beach. It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to a proper blend of desirable amenities, prime location, and attentive guest services.
Other notable examples of Virginia Beach luxury lodging include the Sandcastle Oceanfront Resort and Hotel, the Atrium Resort, and the Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel.
