This Hilton opened in 2005 and is the only four-star hotel in Virginia Beach. Towering 21 stories over the oceanfront, it has shops, three restaurants, and a rooftop bar and infinity pool. The seafood restaurant Catch 31 receives consistently good reviews, and there is great outdoor seating overlooking the boardwalk. At night the bar is a happening scene for thirtysomethings. Rooms use muted tans textiles to give the space a warm feeling. Flat-screen TVs are in both bedrooms
and the bathrooms. Most rooms have balconies with panoramic views, but if yours lacks a beachfront view, you can always hang out at the rooftop pool with rails of glass looking down to the boardwalk.
