“Excellent Customer Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We traveled along with several family members to Annapolis for I-Day Ceremonies at the US Naval Academy where our son began his plebe summer. We chose the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront for the location and consistent with our long-term Marriott loyalty. There was some confusion with our reservation at check-in and one reservation was inadvertently cancelled. It was the awesome service of the front desk staff, and Ms Nichola Harrilal in particular, that professionally addressed the situation. This is THE premier hotel location in Annapolis to take advantage of the waterfront, shopping and restaurants in the village. We regretted renting a car as everything, including the US Naval Academy, was accessible on foot. The waterfront location is perfect. This was a memorable visit for many reasons, including the great work by the Marriott staff.

Room Tip: Waterfront on higher floor recommended.

Walking distance to fun bars, restaurants, water sports, and strolling along the harbor. The hotel is home to the infamous "Pussers" bar & restaurant, which provides for a very interesting entertainment.

Dear Denise K,
We are delighted to have you stay in our fun town and great location. You are right about the water sports and we have a 78 foot Schooner Woodwind Sailboat that leaves from our dock each day. The best is having a Pusser special pain killer drink on our waterfront dock. Come see up again soon!

We are here now for two days - the location is fabulous. In a waterfront room for $369/night before taxes. Parked in the lot next door for $20 a day - cash or check only.
The room is a hodge podge of color and style - blue and tan swirly carpet (that appears relatively new). Black and gold checked desk chair, red lamp. It feels dirty. The desk chair is stained with stuffing showing. The bathroom is basically a small holiday inn-type minimalistic room. Sheets are gray - really dingy. The bed pillows have an odd musty smell - in fact went up the road to target and bought two pillows with cases that we will leave here when we check out.
Ate lunch at Pussers downstairs. The food and view were good - servers are of the home from college for the summer genre - slow and unskilled.
Annapolis has so much going for it, and the location and view at the Marriott are so good - if you don't mind a $400/night motel 6 room- this is for you.
I will attempt to post pictures of the room and view soon.

Love the new look, more contemporary!!! i have stayed here fairly often but too frugal to splurge for a waterfront room until i decided to try on this trip. The VIEW is worth the extra $40 - $60, it serene, exciting, refreshing, energizing, peaceful all at once! Enjoyed the beautiful sunrise as much as the twinkling lights and glistening water in the twilight. Definitely look forward to my next stay in a waterfront room.

Room Tip: Waterfront room is worth the price!

You really could not ask for a better location in downtown Annapolis. The staff just does not seem to be able to keep up with the building. I have stayed a number of times over the years and every year has the same issues. The hote is just not quite clean and a little beat up.

That said, being within an easy walk to the restaurants in downtown is very nice when visiting and you do not want to have to drive and find parking.

My advice is stay at the Residence Inn or Courtyard and cab downtown.

It’s a 70/80s Marriott that commands top prices; especially in graduation week.

I only stayed for one night and less than 14 hours in total, but what I got was a clean and large room; difficult to comment otherwise.

Reception staff very friendly and helpful and provided us with the house courtesy car to take us out to dinner and bring us back; nice touch.

The location is superb and I enjoyed a late night in the waterside bar.

Breakfast was a little processed and greasy for me though. Avoid breakfast here and take a walk (2 mins) into town.

My wife and I just completed our stay at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront. Our experience was one of the best we have ever had during our many trips. First of all the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront is a wonderful experience in itself; the location and view are magnificent. Upon our arrival we were met and taken care of by Doug at the valet parking service. He was very attentive, most helpful, and professional. But at check in, our true Marriott experience began with Nichola greeting us at the Registration Desk. She is absolutely one of the very best Marriott Representatives we have ever encountered. She has the unique quality of not just welcoming a guest, but of making the guest truly “feel welcome”. When she discovered we were there celebrating our 54th Wedding Anniversary, she personally saw to it our experience was enhanced well beyond anything we expected. As our short stay was ending we had breakfast at Pusser’s, and Sarah saw to it that our every need was taken care of. Throughout our entire stay we encountered nothing but professional personnel .

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade or a waterview
