We've made an executive decision to change the 2013 National Jamboree slogan to "Go Big, Get Wet".
Once again, some of our funny & challenging moments have centered around the weather conditions as we broke down camp and made our way out of the National Jamboree. After a few days of some heavy storms, flooding and saturated …
Got to Hang with gordo for a week. Wish it was longer. Navy Camps
A quick brekky and we head off to find the 'real' amish...as we knew they were about. We regularly saw buggies and when driving on the back roads, off the main highways, we saw them working the farm land with horse drawn equipment, or walking around in their traditional clothes or on traditional unmotorised modes of transport. Their cycle was a cross of a razor/scooter and a bicycle. We saw those all over the place as well as those buggies. I'm prerty sure I took a photo of the road ...
... then the commuter train. If I had to pick a favourite moment of the journey I'm not sure what would win: a) being scammed into an awful $17 Chinese for lunch, b) being so bored that I watched a looped YNN feature telling high school children how to cross the road (I'm sure these 14-18 year old kids, who should have been in school an hour and a half before, watch the morning news), or c) my final leg on a partially full 48-seat propeller plane staffed by ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Annapolis
This hotel is not a bad place to stay but it is old and in need of an upgrade. My co-worker and I stayed there for a 4 day class. We had no-smoking rooms but the rooms still had a hint of smoke. If you stay here watch the bed situation. I had a king bed and it slept fine but my co-worker had a bed that was worn out. Also check your coffee stash before you get up the next morning. My co-worker didn't have any coffee and when she called down to the lobby, they told her to come and get it. They were short staffed and could not send anyone to her room.
Cheap, but wouldn't stay here again
Chose this hotel because we got a decent Corporate rate, was extra-excited because they advertised the sleep number beds at this hotel (been dying to try one!) What was NOT clear was that those beds are only available in the suites. In the regular room, the beds are AWFUL ... cheesy thin mattress. In addition, I chose a smoking room, and the room reeked of smoke, spread had burn-holes in it, and wallpaper is peeling off the bathroom wall.
On the PLUS side: High-speed internet is decent ... good speed and relatively easy to connect. Restaurant/bar is good, and they do offer room service and a shuttle service to downtown.
Forget a good night sleep !!!!!
This was the worst night sleep i had in two weeks.the bed was like a saggy horse.if i sat on the end of the bed,the whole front of the bed came up off the base.if you didn`t jump up off the bed.the front part of the mattress would have fallen on you.also,when we made the reservation we asked about the sleep number beds they offer?the gentleman told my wife"yes,we have those beds".he never said they were only in specific rooms.he led us to believe all the rooms had them in them.we were decieve.all in all this was the worst hotel on our vacation.we stayed in all three and four star hotels.
Splurge on room service
Room was even nicer than our last visit two years ago. Very clean, well appointed, and we slept well in the comfy beds.
Room service breakfast was great - share the Chesapeake with your sig. other.
Pool is nice for the little ones (ours are 1 & 3). Don't forget to bring the blow up tubes and water toys. They do an adult swim time so find out ahead of time so the kids don't have to stand there drooling to go swimming. There was even a Friday movie night (Julie Andrew's Princess movie?) out by the pool when we were there.
I stayed in the Radisson for one night to attend a training meeting. When I read some of these reviews, I was very nervous about what I might find, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel decor is very nice; check-in was no problem even though I had made reservations through travelocity. Front desk staff was very nice. I had dinner in the bar; the service and food were very good. The facilities during training were also very nice and lunch (provided) was excellent. The only problem I encountered was that the elevator was sometimes out of order. Since my room was only on the third floor, it was no problem.
Very nice weekend
We stayed here since it was close to where my husband had to play a Friday night gig at a coffeehouse. The room was plenty big, clean and the staff was very helpful. The front desk offered my son a chocolate and our breakfast server (we ordered room service both mornings) was very efficient and confirmed our entire order. We would definitely stay here again. We were sorry we missed out on the huge pool but we did Six Flags instead which was only 15 minutes away. Also, internet connection was over the power lines which was different but still quite good.
Lovely hotel at a great price
We have stayed at the Radisson Annapolis several times a year for the last 3 years. It's pretty, and the room has always been fine--very clean and well maintained. The location is ugly but the price is much better than when staying in the historic area.
position of the hotel o.k.,rooms clean and functional housekeeping good. some of the front desk staff inexperienced in dealing with overseas visitors some better than others but in general poor. the shuttle was our main problem. we chose the radisson as it advertises a shuttle, however it is irregular and unreliable and is unavailble more than available. the drivers were friendly and helpful. our party were shocked by the indifferent manner of the front staff. on numerous occasions we were left stranded with no way of getting hom, and on one occasion were left late at night (after 10.30) with no shuttle or taxi - in the end we had to make our own way back to the hotel. in all honesty we could not recommend the radisson for overseas visitors unless they hire their own car and little or no support from the hotel. some of our party were swedish they were horried by the 'lazy and indifferent front desk staff' (swedish quote) sorry to be so negative but to continue to offer facilities to overseas guests they must sharpen up, i would say in general europeans have a much higher standard than the americans if the radisson is anything to go by. i hope this constructive criticism sill be useful.
The location is terrible, reminding one of location between an airport and rental car row. The whole place smelled like Raid. The room was miniscule and dirty, with the king bed taking up most of the space and leaving little room to walk. I immediately went back to the front desk and asked for a recommendation for a more upscale hotel. The clerk was very nice and happened to be on the phone with a clerk at Annapolis Marriott who quoted her a great rate over the phone. Though the normal price for Marriott is 40% higher than the $89 Radisson was going to charge, Marriott is well worth the cost. In the future, even without the discount the clerks worked out for me, I will choose Marriott for its superb location, breathtaking views, and GORGEOUS, romanesque rooms with pillars and balconies over and over again.
