“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We stayed here to be close to family in Eastport and were able to take advantage of walking to many of the local attractions. The room was a good size, smelled very clean, and was comfortable. It had two closets so there was plenty of space to unpack and store our gear. The valets were very helpful and quick in retrieving our car since we were in and out so often. We are also Gold Marriott members and enjoyed an adjoining room with my father in law, even though it wasn't guaranteed. The view was terrific of Ego Lane, the state house, and the US Naval Academy. Overall, it was a great stay and we would recommend this hotel. The only thing we missed was a pool for our kids but with so much to do, we didn't have much time to use one anyway.

Dear Sue H,
Thank you for staying us while visiting your family in Eastport. It is just a shout walk or water taxi ride from our hotel. We are happy we could accommodate your adjoining room with your father in-law and provide you with great views of the State House, The Naval Academy and of course the famous Ego Alley. We appreciate your comments on our valet service and on housekeeping cleanliness. Come back and stay with us again.

My husband I spent the weekend of Father's Day at the Anapolis Marriott Waterfront. The location of the hotel is the best. The view from our waterfront balcony was priceless.The room was clean and the staff provided us a good service despite the high volume of occupancy the hotel was experiencing at that time.

We stayed at the Marriott for a Sunday evening to avoid driving home to Baltimore for a change. We loved the location so close to the city dock and Main Street. The room was ample and clean with a nice view of the town. The carpet seemed brand new and everything functioned well.
The front desk staff were nice and efficient both on check in and check out. They have Pusser's bar attached for a convenient watering hole or lunch spot. Hard to beat this hotel for comfort and convenience.

Dear kjtripper,
Thank you for staying with us over a Sunday night and avoiding all the traffic back home! We enjoyed your kind comments about the hotel and our great staff! You are right, the carpet is new. We just completed our hotel renovation last month. We do have an excellent waterfront location with walking distance to anything you desire. Please come back and stay with us again.

As a Gold Marriott rewards member, I am promised a free "upgrade" if it is available. There are four room categories available at this hotel as listed on the internet...city view, water front, water front balcony and allergy friendly "pure rooms". Upon check-in, I made that upgrade request and was told that they didn't upgrade without the appropriate payment. I was given an un-renovated room at the front of the hotel which smelled of mildew. I requested another room and was given one on the side of the hotel overlooking the parking lot, the bridge and a bit of water. It was much nicer as it was renovated but still not water front and still considered city view...not even a "pure room".

I later called an found out that waterfront room and balcony rooms were available and were not all booked or utilized during my stay

My complaint is that Marriott and I have an agreement that if I stayed at Marriott and acquired enough stays/points, then my "elite status" would give me an upgrade at their hotels if available. Why else would anyone make an effort to achieve an "elite status" except to get the published and promised benefits?

Marriott, don't make promises that you won't keep. Any hotel branded "Marriott" should abide by your published and promised rewards.

No, I would not stay at this hotel again and would not stay at any Marriott that doesn't abide by the promised and published commitments made by Marriott to their "preferred elite clients". And, further, I may consider whether continuing my "elite status" is really worth my efforts.

Dear AdeleAlan,
Please be advised that unfortunately due to limited number of rooms, we do not upgrade guests to the waterfront rooms.
We do try to upgrade to a high floor or Pure room based upon availability. Marriott Rewards states the upgrade is at the discretion of the hotel.
Thank you for staying with us. We hope this will clarify the issue.

I just returned from a very nice stay at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront. The location of the hotel is second to none. It is in the heart of historic Annapolis and right on the water. The hotel is currently being renovated but the work did not disturb my stay. The room was a very nice size and immaculate. There is a nice restaurant attached to the hotel called Pusser's which is right on the water. So you can sit outside and enjoy the water views. The food wasn't much to write home about but my group enjoyed grabbing a couple cocktails out there after a long stay. The next time I visit Annapolis I will be sure to stay here.

Dear AZRamblinMan,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our centrally located hotel on the waterfront. Pussers has the best views of the boats sailing by and the best pain killer cocktails. Come back to see us soon.

The location of this hotel is WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!!! This place is right on the water, and has you right in the middle of all the action! If you want to get around the harbor, just call the water taxi for a few bucks to take you anywhere! This hotel has been recently renovated, and it is beautiful!! We'll definitely be coming back to stay again!!

Room Tip: You'll want to stay in a harbor view room, for sure!
