NOTE: The two primary hotels are presently full and are not taking new reservations -- please read the notes below carefully because there are still reasonable alternatives available.
Norfolk Waterside Marriott (the meeting will be here)
Sheraton Norfolk Waterside
Both conference hotels above are filled to capacity, and are not currently able to accept new reservations. Hotels below are the only Norfolk properties we found with openings during the conference dates. As cancellations occur daily, it may be possible to find an opening at either the Marriott Waterfront or the Sheraton Waterfront as time goes on, but reservations are currently closed.
We were able to read initial reviews through various travel search engines such as TripAdvisor, agoda.com, Travelzoo, etc. Most travel sites now have an "availability" function which allows one to search for room availability for specific dates, and to see the price point for the specific date chosen, when looking for a hotel in a certain area. Most sites also have a review section, which allows you to do a little extra research about a place before you arrive to check in. You may be able to find the perfect setting for your time at the IDAA annual meeting. That being said, most of the Norfolk area hotels are sold out due to the fact that our annual meeting runs concurrent with the Junior Olympics in the Norfolk area. Hotels listed below are there for your convenience. They had 4 to 5 star reviews, and had openings as of 07/15/2015. Several bed and breakfast properties in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Chesapeake areas had limited availability as well. Please note that IDAA did NOT vet these hotels, and does not endorse, or assume responsibility for the quality of, any property listed below.
Norfolk has close neighbors, and as of 07/15/2015, rooms in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Virginia are plentiful during the conference dates.
