Hilton Norfolk The Main - Photography Blog


By now everyone in Hampton Roads has heard about the new Hilton located in the heart of Downtown Norfolk. The questions is, have you seen it yet? I had the pleasure of working with Campostella Builders located in Chesapeake, VA. They are the company responsible for most of the millwork in the space. I will walk you through some key images in this picture blog. Don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in viewing the entire gallery.


The MAIN - Hilton Norfolk

This building really makes its presence known in Norfolk. The top of the building has changing colors that light up the facade. The entrance lobby is surrounded by four floors of curtain wall glass. The building is well lit on all sides.

You really get a sense of this space the second you enter the lobby. You can see the extent of the millwork from ground level all the way up to the fourth floor. The colors and the lighting in this space are so beautiful that it had to be shot during the evening hours.

To the left as you walk in is one of three restaurants in the space. This is Saltine, a sophisticated seafood restaurant, which features unique black distressed millwork.

There are some hidden gems in the space. Those bookshelves are operable and hide a private dining facility. Here is what you see beyond the bookshelves.

As you looked up from the first floor, you may have noticed the millwork ceiling cantilevering out. Below is the view from the third floor that really shows how beautiful that piece is.

On the fifth floor is the restaurant Grain. This nightspot has some of the most spectacular views. It features a rooftop bar and there is live music almost every night of the week..

Now all the way up to the top floor, the private suite. Up here, you have private rooms – each with its own lounge and catering.


There really is a lot more to this project. These are just a few of the highlighted spaces. You really need to check it out for yourself to experience it. It is great to have a project like this in Hampton Roads, more specifically, Norfolk!
