I recently stayed at Chez Ami for Plebe Parents Weekend at the Naval Acadmey. Ellie was an incredibly gracious host. My ex-husband and his wife also stayed at Chez Ami allowing our Plebe to spend time with both of us in a "home-like" environment without leaving just the 3 of us to hang out when she was back in Bancroft. The room I stayed in had a bath down the hall, but was not an issue as I NEVER saw anyone outside the living room area.
The very best part about Chez Ami is the location. It is a quick 5 minute (at most) walk to USNA Gate 1. A quick trip down Fleet Street has you in the heart of DTA (Downtown Annapolis). Our Midn was able to leave the Yard, take a quick show, grab a milkshake and take a nap on the couch all in the amount of time it woud have taken us to drive to an area hotel.
The excellent reviews are well deserved. Ellie serves a fantastic breakfast, but i was on the run so usually just grabbed fruit and breakfast bread. The fridge is stocked with cold drinks. We had takeout Italian one night and brought it back to eat at the dining table. Perfect arrangement for our purpose.
