HAMPTON—The hotel overlooking The Docks @ Downtown Hampton marina has changed owners and names several times over the last few years. After recent renovations, it currently goes by The Landing Hotel by Hilton, and is open for business again. The iconic nine-story building is one of the first properties approved by the Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand.

Chester, Virginia-based Shamin hotels—the owners of the building—hired a national leader in hospitality design to work with Hilton on the unique design of the hotel. The Tapestry brand is positioned to appeal to travelers looking for comfort, convenience, and reliability while still allowing each hotel to keep its individual spirit and design. The concept offers guests an independent, boutique-style experience along with a reputation backed by Hilton’s standard for service and cleanliness.

The newly renovated space provides a complement of services and amenities, including 173 guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Hampton River, 10,000 square feet of event space, an indoor/outdoor bar, and a rooftop pool deck. This is in addition to free WiFi, non-smoking rooms, an on-site restaurant, free parking, a fitness center, a business center, and meeting rooms.

The renovation is expected to bring additional visitors to the area to enjoy the shops, restaurants, museums, and local brew pubs that are all within walking distance.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
