The Tazewell is our favorite mid-size hotel in Norfolk, a multistory complex that does a good job of blending the best modern amenities with a Southern sense of refinement and Jazz Age nostalgia. The building dates from 1906, and was extensively renovated in 2000 to recapture the delicate grandeur of that architectural period. The entire presentation, from lobby to room, relies on earth tones of tobacco brown and cornstalk yellow, which adds to a mahogany-scented sense of style and class. It helps that all of this is complemented by nice perks, like Internet, cable TV and turn-down service. To top it off, online rates are a steal that make the Tazewell easily a "budget" option.
