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A gorgeous located hotel with VERY basic, outdated, dirty rooms!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 The carpet in the room was dark, old and very dirty, bathrooms were old, ugly and outdated, and the beds (2 doubles) needed major replacing.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.
A Nice Place to Stay
We recently stayed at this hotel and got a great price through Priceline.
Pros: the location, nice up-to-date spacious rooms, accomodating staff, valet parking, a great view from the room (we had a nice view of the marina).
Cons: we originally got a room on the first floor. there was a wedding going on, so we promptly asked to switch rooms. the staff was very accomodating and we got a nice room on the third floor immediately. I just don't think the first floor was as nice as other floors. another big con: we found old coffee in one of the coffee cups in our room - otherwise, the room was clean!
In summary, Annapolis is really nice and I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. You have great access to Main Street, the water, and other historical sites.
P.S. We had great meals and Chick and Ruth's Delly and O'Learys Seafood Restaurant.
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.

So, I went out shopping for a new camera as mine isn't working great anymore - it is about 9 years old, so not only isn't it working great, the technology is out of date. Because I have several lenses, I feel I have to stay with the same brand or it would be like starting over which would be extremely expensive. I went to some stores, browsed the internet, and found a camera a few steps up from mine but it was $500! Yeah, that's not in the budget! ...
First stop was the US Capitol building. Since George Washington laid the cornerstone in 1793, the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored. In 1814 during the war of 1812, British troops set fire to the building, and only a sudden rainstorm prevented its complete destruction. It was completed in 1824. It contains approximately 540 rooms and has 658 windows (108 in the dome alone) and approximately 850 doorways. The dome ...
