We stayed 4 days in the Maryland inn and 2 nights in the Governor Calvert house. Two very different stays. My wife found the Maryland to be dated, old, and loud. TV would go on at 3 in the am 3 nights in a row . We think this was because of thin walls and strong remotes, not other worldly reasons as one guest was claiming to us. If anybody is walking nearby you hear it. The Calvert house room was much nicer, newer, quiet and less dated. Also the room was not as dark. The location is excellent and really can't be beat. 20+$ a day to park a car so we did not get one. Can walk everywhere in Historic Annapolis and take taxi to movie or mall. Many fun places to eat and drink within walking distance. No need for a car. Staff works hard and seem very busy. Rolls and coffee in the am are nice but will not pass for a breakfast for the average person. So I think the location trumps other issues, but in my opinion, stay at the Calvert over the Maryland. The location is great.
