Holiday Inn North Beach has a wonderful team. They work together to meet the clients needs and do it with a smile. Nothing gets them flustered, believe me. We had a few last minute requests and they handled each one with the same attention to detail as the entire event. The view overlooking the ocean, the table settings and decorating; it was elegant and the food was superb. The Holiday Inn North Beach was beautiful and made me so proud. I would recommend this venue to anyone wanting to make a rare occasion spectacular.

We could not have picked a better venue. Everyone was so helpful, the view from the reception was incredible, and the food was amazing. Great value also, not only for us, but our guests as well since they were all given rooms at deeply discounted rates. The only complaint I had was that I told the hotel during our taste testing that my mother-in-law would attempt to open the bar for an extra hour (which she also did to my brother-in-law and his wife) and that I didn't want her or anyone else to be able to. It happened anyway. I also wanted everything to go through my husband and I, and on more than one occasion my mother and mother-in-law received emails that my husband and I did not get, including an email asking what special entrees my husband and I would like for our meals. All in all this was by far the best hotel to have a wedding at in Virginia Beach and if given the chance I would have the Holiday Inn and Suites North Beach, and Ashley Alger do it for us again. I definitely recommend this venue.

We used the Holiday Inn and the Isle of Capri for my son's rehearsal dinner. The service was excellent. The room had windows on 2 sides overlooking the ocean. We had a 6:00 dinner, so the sunset view was spectacular. The food was wonderful. All went very smoothly. My advice is to check the cables that are needed for the AV equipment. We didn't have the right cables and had to do some scrambling and download the slide show to a stick drive and move it to a different computer.

We absolutely loved doing our wedding here! This was the third venue we went to and I knew it was the one that would make me dream wedding come true! I was so confident and comfortable dealing with Larissa the event manager that I never once worried that anything would go wrong. She emailed me back immediately with answers to any questions I had and even let me send Pinterest ideas of what I envisioned the reception to look like. Oh and the view is gorgeous!!! I would recommend this venue to any bride! Also we had no issues getting a block of rooms for our guests. we did our rehearsal dinner there the night before and had a beautiful wedding. The staff who serviced our rehearsal dinner and reception were amazing!!!! Our guests loved the location. They were close to restaurants, bars and the ocean. It was really perfect! So if you're looking for an affordable/ stress free wedding that still is what you dreamed it to be check out this venue! You won't be disappointed!

Absolutely without a doubt go with holiday inn north beach. What an incredible place to have a wedding. Larissa the catering coordinator was outstanding! Wouldn't have been able to do it without her help. We are from out of state and she made this process so smooth and easy. She was always calling or emailing to make sure I was up to date and didn't have any questions. She made this day perfect for us.

This probably goes without saying, but get everything in writing. Most people do not plan multiple weddings, so details can be promised verbally, but if they are not in writing, there is not much you can do once your wedding weekend arrives. Our son and his fiancé contracted with one wedding planner who took another job about five months before the wedding. When the package was sold and contract signed, it was signed with the the understanding that the rain plan included use of an indoor room (Atrium). It was shown to the groom three times, the bride twice, and three other family members three times as the room that would be used in case of rain. Two days before the wedding, we were told by the new wedding planner that the Atrium was booked. It was a rainy weekend, but luckily it stopped raining 30 minutes before the wedding and it was held on the beach. The new wedding planner was put in an awkward spot and handled it well.

We were also told that the room we reserved for the reception held 125 people and that may be the fire code number. Two weeks before the wedding, we were told that the room really holds about 100. We had about 90, and that was a good number. The dance floor is pretty small.

The other huge mistake we made was not reserving enough rooms in a block. The bride and groom were told to reserve 10 rooms for a projected wedding for 125 people. If you are reserving a block, get rooms in your contract with a date the price is no longer guaranteed for guests. By the time we parents figured out that too few rooms had been reserved, the price had jumped $100 per room. This could have been avoided. Luckily, there are plenty of hotel rooms in Virginia Beach off season.

The good news? The rehearsal dinner at the Isle of Capri was lovely. The food was delicious. The service was first rate. The view was spectacular.

The reception itself was very nice as well. The food was really good. The service was also great. We would use Holiday Inn again.

We had a rehearsal dinner May 2016 at the Holiday Inn in their room off the restaurant overlooking the ocean. It was absolutely beautiful. Larissa the event coordinator was fantastic to work with pre-planning & during the dinner. I was reluctant to order off the banquet menu, thinking it would be pre-cooked standard banquet food - it was anything but. We had the steak & mahi-mahi which were both perfect!! They were very accommodating in substituting vegetables, desserts etc. I was very budget conscious & they did a lovely cheese, fruit display that was both reasonably priced & perfect for an appetizer. I would highly recommend this venue!

My day at Holiday Inn North Beach was a small ceremony and lunch/dinner reception on 4/29/16. It was a seamless transition from my coordinator, Emily, that I originally signed a contract with to, Larissa. Larissa was so involved with every decision me and my mom made, and reached out to us months before hand just to touch base. She went above and beyond what other event coordinators would do by reaching out to remind us she needed more details on the big day as it was getting close to the date. It was a small ceremony that much of family still doesn't know about, an elopement ceremony and reception. It did not seem any less important to Larissa. She genuinely seemed to care how my day with my love and our family went. :) Our lunch/dinner reception was on the patio of the Square Whale for about 15 total people, and we had our ceremony on the lawn over looking the boardwalk and beach. At first we were told we would have half the patio, but we ended up having it all to ourselves! Our contract was for a couple of hours, but Larissa told us we could have it as long as we wanted. It was a cold day for the end of April, so I would suggest they have heaters that can be placed on the patio should odd weather pop up for people reserving that space. The food was a customized menu of choices based on our selections, and everything was great! My husband and I both had the crab cake platter. Delicious and filling! The servers were attentive to me and my husband, and our families, so we could not have asked for a better day! ...except for warmer temperatures :-)
Our room for the night was a king bed suite with ocean/pool view from our room and living room, and the bed was very comfortable. I wish I could have enjoyed it longer, but we flew out very earlier the next morning to honeymoon in the Dominican Republic. I will definitely stay at Holiday Inn North Beach in the future, and refer friends to this location for their events!

Larissa was very easy to work with and extremely professional. She took the stress of the event off of me and let me enjoy the evening. We used the Vista Room to host the rehearsal dinner for my son and his bride. It was a perfect evening and everyone had nothing but nice things to say about the view, service and food. It was wonderful.

Had billing problems and had trouble getting answers to questions. Some things I wanted I had to go without because we never got a response.

But the staff was amazing, guests raved about the food and the day went smoothly and that was the most important thing. Well, there are some lingering billing concerns.
