“We stayed here after our wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The location was great, which ws the Governor Calvert's house in the State Circle. Everyone was very helpful and offered great recommendations for breakfast and helped transport our large group to our resturant. We stayed in the king size suite which was lovely. I was able to capture a photo of the sunrising over the water with my phone. Our wedding party stayed in the hotel with us as well. The double and queen size rooms were smaller. But for the price and location it was more than a fair market price. Because of the great downtown location we were able to go out and enjoy the Annapolis night life. We live in the area so it is nice to be able to pass by the hotel and reflect fondily on our memories made there.

Room Tip: Go for the best and stay in the king size suite. For a few bucks more you will have a better experi...

We stayed in Governor Calvert's house in a double room. Whilst the hotel is a historic inn, there are modern extensions and our room was in one of these, so if the character of the room is important to you then it is worth checking first.

Our rate included valet parking and breakfast, both of which were to the standard expected. The restaurant was not open for dinner as it was Thanksgiving day, but breakfast was excellent.

Annapolis is compact and the hotel is in the centre opposite the state Capitol.

Nice hotel with friendly staff, this is a solid choice.

My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary weekend at the Maryland Inn. The room and bathroom were both very clean, and the reproduction antiques add charm. Check-in and check-out were a breeze, and staff were helpful and prompt with all requests. Our package included breakfast at the Treaty of Paris, and those meals were superb. The location right off Church circle was convenient to the trolley, shops, restaurants, waterfront, and the Naval Academy.

Two nearby restaurants (just a block or so away) we highly recommend are the Piccolo Roma and the Cafe Normandie.

The reason I don't rate the property 5 stars were the following small inconveniences:

The bathroom of our queen room was tiny, which wouldn't have been an issue if there had been any shelf space. But the only wall shelf was full of supplies, tissue, rolled-up towels, etc.. The elegant pedestal sink, single hook on the back of the door and teensy tiny corner shelf inside the shower itself left no space to put any products other than the floor.

The towels and sheets were okay, above budget chain quality, but not by much. The mattress had a slight depression in the middle and clearly needs to be replaced.

OTOH, there were quite a few pillows on the bed, and the bedroom had several chairs, desk, plenty of hangers in the closet, luggage rack, large flatscreen TV and adjustable heat. And we had a great view of the capitol dome.

Despite the inconviences, I would stay there again, but I'd be sure to pack some over-the-door storage for toiletries, and maybe bring my own pillowcases.

Room Tip: Breakfast is served in the Treaty of Paris at the Maryland Inn, so I'd request a room there if p...

Very nice clean and comfortable hotel in the literal heart of the capitol. The only inconvenience is parking. Best advice, park and walk everywhere.
A few nice perks are full size quality towels, big TVs, top flight linens and firm but very comfy mattresses.
Would absolutely stay here again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

After reading all the reviews for this hotel I was excited to book it for our 10 year Anniversary weekend in Annapolis. I am very sorry to say that this was a very big let down. First, we arrived at around 3pm on Friday afternnoon only to have to drive around State circle for 20 minutes until there was enough room for us to park and give our keys to the valet. When we arrived in our room (In the Robert Johnson House) it was so hot that we could barely breathe. I tried to open the window but it was nailed shut. We realized that the A/C was not working and that it was blowing only very hot air into the room. I will say that once we called the front desk they were prompt in sending maintenance to investigate and fix the problem. While waiting for them I looked in the vents and the filters and the vents themselves were disgustingly filthy and the filter looked as if it hadn't been cleaned or changed in a very long time. The fan vent in the bathroom (which didn't work) was even more disgusting and full of what looked like mold. There was mold in the shower as well. I do not know where the rooms that are pictured on the website are because our room was extremely small and stuffy. (we booked a queen room and it was less than half the size of a normal hotel room I would guess) The second day while I was in the shower I found 2 bugs crawling up the shower curtain, and then found another one on the floor later on. No need to elaborate on that...gross.
The only positive thing I can say is that the location was fantastic and that is clearly what we paid for, because the room itself was no where near worth what we paid.

Enjoyed staying at the Calvert House during a wedding weekend trip. Room was nice. Bed was squeaky, yet comfy. Close proximity to Main Street and the fun of downtown. Parking was a little complicated, but the Valet wasn't too expensive. Would return again!

Our party of four stayed at the Governor Calvert House for two nights, and we all agreed there couldn't have been a better place to stay in Annapoplis. Centrally located right on State Circle, we seniors easily could walk to all the historic sights we wanted to see and pass charming shops and restaurants along the way. All the staff members we met were enthusiastically courteous, charming and very, very helpful. Though on the small side compared to a big modern hotel chains, our rooms had much more historic and decorative charm, with thick comfortable mattresses and big fluffy pillows, and they were clean, cozy and quiet. Great coffee and pastries woke us in the morning, and hot apple cider and fresh fruits were available all day and all night. The entrance and lobby have 3 soft and cushioned seating areas to make one feel at home ... we could "hang out" and chat or sit alone and read into the wee hours - So much nicer than a cold and cavernous hotel chain. The free shuttle was a big bonus for us since we wanted to dine at restaurants which were not in our immediate area. Just say "Yes" to Historic Inns of Annapolis!

Room Tip: At first I was given an interior room - very nice, but I find this type room very claustrophobic and...
