Nice place for a Cheer competition. Roomy, good parking area (not a long walk to center), large area waiting area that is very bright due to all the windows. We've been in larger places but this is a solid place to visit and compete.

The Convention Center is large and can accommodate any size group. There are small suites, ballrooms, and expansive exhibit space. The staff are fabulously friendly and accommodating. For groups seeking an environmentally friendly environment, the convention center is also LEED certified.

There are a bunch nearby. Too many to mention. Google hotel in Virginia Beach area. All for the most part are newer than the one we stayed in. A few new ones are being built when we were in town. Good luck!
