This is one of those bad yet good in the long run deals. The Virginia Beach Resort Hotel & Conference Center on Shore drive is shutting down for renovations on November 1st. It will shut down for a while as they take parts of the hotel even down to the concrete. I've actually stayed there 8 YEARS ago and it need the upgrade then.
79 positions will be laid off. The hotel will reopen in 2020 after this $25 MILLION renovation. Rebranded as Delta by Marriott (Bring on the points!) and it will have 295 rooms. There is a bunch of things planned too, restaurants and entertainment facilities. This is the same company that manages the Norfolk Waterside Marriott. Click here for more info
