The Norfolk Airport Hilton

The Norfolk "Airport" Hilton is not actually at the airport, it's close to the airport. There is no Hilton in Norfolk that is closer to the airport in Norfolk, so I guess it merits its name. The halls are nothing to write home about, but that doesn't mean I can't write about them here. See?

The hotel is popular, based on my completely unscientific "how many USA Todays are there by the doors in the morning" method.

The NAH has a number of, shall we say, interesting features. 1) Two atria (atriums?).
The first is over the lobby.

The second illuminates this Max & Erma's table behind the elevator shaft.

2) A welcoming curtain on your floor, instead of some indication of where your room might be.

The curtain is always closed. Good thing, too, as it hides a spotlight module and some other junk.

One other thing. They must take brass polishing very seriously, as they've managed to scrub off the plating on the elevator door.
