... Naval Academy. The Academy was even more peaceful than Annapolis! I expected a lot more tourists withing the walls, but there were only the occasional midshipmen jogging around campus or relaxing on benches in the grass park. Just about every building there was open to the public. We were able to simply walk into almost deserted buildings. Never before have I experienced anything like that. Normally I am limited on where we can and ...
... Metro system & their ticketing it only took 1/2hr to get into the city. The rest of the day was spent walking, we walked & we walked & we walked some more but it was the easiest way to see everything. We know we did at least 7 miles & probably more. We went to the Capitol Building, the White House, up the Old Post Office Tower. We walked from one end of the National Mall to the other & lots in between to see the Lincoln Memorial, ...
... early air travel thru the 2 world wars and into space travel. The world war exhibits are very powerful and leave you with a real sadness. The space part - the shear size of things - they have a one of the test skylab space stations there which you can walk through (or rather squeeze through). The Rocket thruster engines from Saturn 5 - the biggest jet engine ever made (pictured before with Tim)
We went to Annapolis today to see not only the Harbor but the Naval Academy. The Harbor is small a pretty harbor with sailboats and fancy yachts. We did take a cruise on the harbor, it was a very nice afternoon for a cruise to see the sites. The Naval Academy is right there as well an unbelievable spot and our cruise took us on a voyage around the Academy. The Academy mid ship-men have it made. ...
... the center – which had a row of three seats empty. Guess some passengers who had booked the seats missed the flight!
So I had a pretty comfortable ride home on the last of six flights back from Tagbilaran, Philippines. We departed two minutes late at 12:57 p.m. and had a long wait to reach the runway, finally taking off at 1:33. The time change to Washington is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Annapolis Marriott Waterfront
Horrible-Needs huge renovation-Update
A gorgeous located hotel with VERY basic, outdated, dirty rooms! We stayed for 3 nights, expecting top notch room, service and amenities only to receive below average on all aspects! The carpet in the room was dark, old and very dirty, bathrooms were old, ugly and outdated, and the beds (2 doubles) needed major replacing. We had a balcony room ($350 + per night) with tiny uncomfortable chairs, and a very unattractive balcony to say the least. Nice to have Pusser's below, (way overpriced!!) but with all the fantastic restaurants in Annapolis, don't stay here just for the Pusser/waterview restaurant. Go elsewhere for lodging and restaurant.
Poor Value for Money
Only good thing is the location; otherwise way overpriced
Nice View but Just Ok
The staff was friendly and the view was nice but the rooms were just ok. For $320/night, you should expect a lot more. The only reason they get away for charging so much is b/c they are the only hotel right on the water. I wouldn't stay there again - it is not worth the price. The restaurant was good and it was nice to sit right on the water, but stay somewhere else and just do for dinner.
Wedding night accommodations just okay...
My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Annapolis Marriott, and received a complimentary room the night of our wedding. We received a standard room on the third floor with a partial water view, a disappointment after spending SO much money to have our reception there. As we've come to expect from Marriott hotels, the room was tastefully decorated, the bed extremely comfortable, and the staff helpful. The location is uncomparable in Annapolis, topped only by a couple of downtown bed and breakfasts. If you have the budget, the Marriott is a good choice.
We recently stayed at this hotel and got a great price through Priceline.
Very nice hotel
My husband and I stayed here on New Years Eve. This is a very nice hotel. We had a nice, clean, modern room, and staff was accomodating to us. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar with our friends before the evening's festivities and enjoyed the breakfast buffet the next morning. Nothing negative to say about it. The floor in one of the wings was being replaced due to hurricane Isabel damage but this did not take away from the quality of our stay.
Avoid at all costs
Overpriced. Tacky decor. Small rooms. Mediocre service. Only thing this hotel has going for it is its location. Think carefully before you spend $300 plus for it. Damage from recent hurricane hadn't been fixed 8 weeks after damage - but still charged full price for room. Pusser's restaurant in hotel has mediocre food, mediocre service and is grossly overpriced. $12 for a poor excuse for a crabcake sandwich.
A shame for a Marriott!
What a shame that the Marriott name is attached to a place such as this.
I stayed there in October. The whole place smelled musty and damp. And it had nothing to do with the water.
Food in the Pussers's restaurant was sorry, simply tasteless.
The service Marriott is known for worldwide was non-existent.
All in all, a disappointment. I paid $259 a night just to look at some boats and water! Quite a disappointment.
Only place in Annapolis with Water!
Bottom line is that this is the only place in Annapolis where you can stay on the water. Everything is at your doorstep and the waterfront bar is great for summer nights. Can be expensive but worth it!
Room with a View
My girlfriend and I recently visited the Annapolis Area. We stayed in a Waterfront room at the Annapolis Marriott. The views were absolutely spectacular, and the hotel's staff friendly and helpful. Annapolis is a great town, full with history and tons of places to visit.
