My husband and I, along with a colleague and his wife, stayed at the O'Callaghan in mid-January on business. Overall, it was a very good experience, and I would stay there again without hesitation. The staff is warm and friendly, the atmosphere is truly inviting and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.
Valet parking is $15.00/night, and there really is no other option for your vehicle, so that is something to keep in mind. However, as this hotel averages $100+ per night less than a handful of hotels nearby, I consider that a good trade-off.
A few things to keep in mind: Although there is a restaurant/lounge with room service, the hours are very restricted. I would use the term "room service" lightly, as it is more so translates to "We can bring you a sandwich and a fountain drink"; we heard several other customers complain about the lack of hours and options available through the lounge as well. On the plus side, you ARE only a short walk away from restaurants.
Secondly, a hotel directory would be a definite plus in the rooms. It is always nice having the hotel services outlined in a convenient binder, in addition to helpful information like restaurants that will deliver to the hotel, menus to the hotel's restaurant/lounge and hours for the hotel's different service offerings, like the business center, lounge and so forth. On the plus side, however, the front desk does have an interactive screen that allows you to search local establishments based on certain search preferences, which was great for discovering highlights of the local area.
Overall, The O'Callaghan is a lovely establishment and a place I would definitely stay at again. Between the extremely reasonable price point, location, beauty of the facility and incredible staff, it really it a gem in the heart of Annapolis.
