My fiancee and I decided to break up a long, mid-July trip with a night in Annapolis, and we chose Chez Amis based on its excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The location is excellent, wedged in a historic neighborhood between the harbor, the State House and the Naval Academy. The rooms are appropriately themed. We stayed in the Law Library room, complete with old legal tomes on the shelves. The room was modest in size, but it was very comfortable and we slept well. Elly, the proprietor, gave us excellent dinner recommendations and options (walk, water taxi) for getting there. We had a nice walk over to the Vin 909 Wine Cafe, also highly recommended on Trip Advisor, and got there just in time to get a counter seat on a Thursday evening. Elly served us some excellent Frittatas for breakfast, leaving us content but not stuffed. Breakfast is served at a large, rustic table built to accommodate eight guests. We had a nice chat with a younger couple while eating. Then we brought the car back and re-packed for the next leg of our trip. I should mention that parking is in a well-guarded garage about three blocks away. It was no problem for us, but visitors should be aware that old properties in a historic area with narrow streets are unlikely to have on-site parking. That said, we were really pleased with the facility, the warm and informative hostess, and the proximity to so many good restaurants and places of interest in downtown Annapolis. We will DEFINITELY be back, hopefully next summer if not sooner. This place is a wonderful find. Highly recommended!
