“Amazing Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I decided to stay here for a staycation with my wife. We live in DC so it's a 35 minute drive to Annapolis. First of all Annapolis is great. Especially if you live in a big city because Annapolis is perfect for getting away but still have ample things to do at your leisure. Or you can do nothing and not feel bombarded.

The hotel made the trip perfect. It was sweltering outside and the valet/bellman we hustling and maneuvering cars without hesitation and with a smile like it was 75 degrees and sunny outside. It was really 98 and hot as....well, you get the idea. Anyway, they were so eager to help and extremely polite. When we did need our car (only once because because of time constraints since everything is walkable from the hotel) it was brought to us quickly, with the AC blasting and soothing music on the radio. PERFECT.

Check-in was just as pleasant. The lobby is clean and spacious. Not a lot of clutter and the smiles behind the front desk made it so much more welcoming. The process was quick, efficient and extremely relaxing. At no time did I feel like we were being rushed away. I asked if the concierge could offer some advice on places to eat and the front desk woman (I'm kicking myself for forgetting her name) said that she is my concierge and began rattling off names of places with ease.

When we got to the room it was clean, smelled fresh and just the right amount of space. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was spotless and the tv remote worked (for some reason I must have bad luck with broken remotes) so we couldn't have been happier.

One morning I was suffering from the whiskey flu and I called down to the front desk to inquire about breakfast. I told the woman I was "tired" and she understood and gave me a concerned but jovial "get some rest". I did. Later on that evening, well recovered, I called back to ask about something else. Not realizing it was the same woman from earlier in the morning I was asked, "Can I ask YOU something Mr. Styles? How are you feeling now?" it was such a nice feeling.

I can go on and on about so much stuff, the awesome bartender, the courteous staff, the overall relaxing feel of the hotel, but I would need a lot more time.

Long story short, we loved this place and will be back again. No doubt.

This hotel is walking distance to the downtown area (free bus is across the street for those who don't feel like walking) which was a big must for me.

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and luxurious. The staff is friendly and attentive.

I'm pretty much guaranteed a great stay no matter where I travel as long as I stay at Loews.

I recently proposed to my then-girlfriend, now-fiancée, in historic Annapolis and chose the Loews Annapolis for our stay after. I could not have made a better choice.

We felt like we got the red carpet treatment from the moment we arrived. Mind you, when we first reached, my fiancée had no idea what was in store. The valet was great, friendly and courteous. After a schooner cruise and the proposal itself, we returned to the Loews for dinner at West. Excellent dinner (the dishes and drinks we ordered were very good), courteous wait staff and really nice chef who came out to greet us (I'd told them earlier that I was planning to propose that weekend and was coming to West as our celebratory dinner). The hotel room was great -- the hotel is being renovated and the rooms should be even better once that is done -- and we had a wonderful stay. Very special thanks to Ashley at the Concierge who shared her thoughts as I was finalizing the grand plan and treated us so, so well when we stayed. She even came to meet us in person -- very nice touch.

I'd recommend the Loews Annapolis very strongly. Also, within walking distance to the harbor and shops and restaurants.

This was our second stay at this hotel, The last time I got 2 Rooms for my kids and their friend,rooms are good size, This time hotel was being updated, new lobby is very modern now, New chef and remodeled restaurant looked nice, This hotel is not on the water so we ate elsewhere in downtown areas on the water, great food everywhere we tried. The valet staff at this Hotel went above and beyond at every opportunity from speedy service, To maps and tips about the city, And precise directions everywhere we went. We were booked into a double this Time through priceline ,We asked for a king room and were changed with no hesitation, Our room was kept very clean free coffee,newspaper everyday, free shuttle service, for downtown
area. I'am sure when renovations are done, this will be one of top destinations in Annapolis.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floors

Loews is located near the circle and in walking distance to Miss Shirley's. I stayed one night on July 20th and it was great! The restaurant in the lobby is delicious! Staff and service were excellent!

The only con about this hotel is they are renovating a portion of the hotel so there was construction noise and the smell of paint; but that didn't bother me.

I will stay here again!!! Thanks for the Free Figi Water and Snickers!!

I stayed at the Loews Annapolis Hotel on Friday July 19th only for one night and boy was it a pleasant stay. We had to stay somewhere in Annapolis due to traffic backed up for 3 hours on the bay bridge because of an accident. We called the Loews to make a reservation and they had room so we decided to book. The room was expensive for what was available and for parking to be 20/23 on top of it was a little much. However, the service we received from the valet Jason and Pat the next morning made the price for valet worth it. They really seemed to care about the troubles we had the day before and offer other options to beat traffic and get to the beach quickly. The hotel was great but the best thing about it was the service when departing. I was amazed at how much both these valets cared about our vacation to Ocean City. To bad we didn't get that when we arrived to the beach!

I will give five stars to the Lowes Annapolis hotel for their friendly and courteous staff, location convenient to walking downtown and being located on the trolley route. I can only give three stars for the actual room, which would have been satisfactory for a $100/night hotel, but was much less than I expected for $300/night. The hallways had a strange musty odor, the one bedroom suite was large enough and comfortable, but the only bathroom was located in the bedroom; meaning family members/guests in the living room had to come in the bedroom where I was sleeping to use the facilities. Also, wireless was not included in the $300/night price, nor was the $20/day self parking in an unpaved lot behind some dumpsters. I expected more. However, again, kudos to the lobby and front desk staff, they were exemplary.
