“Spectacular Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We chose this hotel due to its close location to the U.S. Naval Academy. It is absolutely perfect and a very easy walk to the Academy as well as Main Street. The hotel is not inexpensive; however, the staff more than made up for that as they made sure that all of our needs were met. When we arrived one of our rooms was still being cleaned and the staff sent up a bottle of wine to the room we were in so we could have a drink and enjoy the waterfront view from the balcony --- that was totally unnecessary but a real nice touch. To highlight how great this staff was, I can say I stay at Marriott hotels all over the world and this staff is the best of anywhere I have stayed. We had two rooms that had a great view of the waterfront and both were very clean and had ample space. The fitness center is basic but very nice. The hotel restaurant is also very good. If you are planning to visit the Naval Academy you should book here.

Dear Shev61,
We are only a couple blocks from the US Naval Academy enterance and perfect location. Pussers Landing overlooks the Naval Academy and many Naval Reunions stay with us! Thank you for your comments on our staff service. We think we have the best staff in Annapolis!

The staff was very accommodating, but you sort of expect that from a Marriott. What surprised me was how helpful they were when I left something in my room. They located the item and were helpful and concerned during the process of shipping it back. Much appreciated!
Thank you Michel!

I loved the location as it is in the heart of the town, and the views were spectacular.
I'm not sure if all the King rooms are as large as mine, but it was very spacious with tons of work space.

Just returned from two days at the Marriott Annapolis Waterfront hotel during the annual festive Sailboat Show. Lots of people and vendors, beautiful views, and great service by hotel staff. Nice view from hotel room. Great food and drinks, and valet parking. Easy to walk everywhere in the restaurant areas of the city.

Room Tip: Economical city view is a prudent choice, but balcony rooms overlooking the Severn River are the bes...

Dear jczerwonky,
We are happy you enjoyed Sailboat show! You had incredable weather. We do have beautiful views from many of our rooms and Pussers Restaurant but the balcony rooms should be booked in advance as they are reserved quickly by our guests! Thanks for the feedback.

This is an older, smaller hotel in the Marriott chain, but it enjoys an unparalleled location with part of the hotel literally on stilts over the Severn River and a dock alongside the outdoor bar. At all hours of the day or night, people pull their boats up to the hotel to enjoy dinner or the lively bar scene. The rooms tend to be small, but they are typically well appointed and most have views of either Downtown Annapolis, including the capitol building, the Naval Academy and its beautiful Chapel dome, or the waterfront along the Severn.

Dear Steve G,
You are right we have the best location overlooking the Waterfront, The Bay Bridge, The Naval Academy and The State House. We are a small boutique Marriott that enjoys taking good care of our guests. Many of our guests come by car or boat. Thanks for staying with us.

We did go during the busiest time possible: Powerboat Show AND Navy-Air Force game. Considering how incredibly crazy packed the area was, the staff never missed a beat (even when the bathroom ceiling had a leak from the overflowing tub in the room above -- they came in less than 2 minutes and settled it swiftly and with a smile). I am sure the room cost had a lot to do with the demand, so I will leave it up to others to find a better deal. Nevertheless, it was an unbeatable location to see much without getting back into the car.

I have stayed at this location numerous times. Staff is always cheerful, rooms are clean and the location is great! However, the plumbing is becoming a problem. The sinks take hours to drain and once, nasty water came up the drain and knocked the drain plunger out of the pipe. I notified the front desk each time, they wrote it down, but nothing was done. I even checked out a day early due to these problems. I'm trying to find a better/cheaper place for my future travels to Annapolis!

We were able to score one of the rooms with a harbor view. It was absolutely beautiful! A large sailboat docked right outside our window/deck. We woke to the sunrise over the water. It was a memorable stay. The room itself was large and pleasant but the view was the best part of the Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the harbor are best.

Dear FirstClassMedford,
Our waterfront rooms are the most amazing views. We are glad you enjoyed the sunrise!.It is important to book those rooms early. There are only 23 waterfront rooms. Our other rooms also have views of Ego Alley, the State House, the Naval Academy Chapel, the Annapolis Yacht Club and more. Come see us again soon.
