“Gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed at this establishment and we are going back again. This hotel is clean and nicely decorated. It is located within walking distance to the heart of Annapolis. My wife and I have decided that whenever we are in Annapolis we will always stay in this hotel. The front desk service was excellent. Jacque was one of the nicest front desk employees we have ever encountered at a hotel. Because of her hospitality she has shown us, we have booked a room to stay here during our Easter vacation.

My husband and I recently stayed at the o' Callaghan in Annapolis while joining some boating friends for a winter meeting. We choose this hotel because we could valet park our car for $18/day and walk everywhere we were going. While the rooms were clean, I noticed that the bottom sheet on our king size bed was too short for the bed and there were only 2 bath towels available in the bathroom. When we checked in and out there was only one person on the desk so guests had to wait. Also, when we checked in there was no bellman/valet present so we just parked our car and took the key in to the desk as did 2 other incoming guests. A family who was checking in front of us had to get a cart and load their own luggage. I had checked beforehand about room safes but when we went to use it we could not make it work. We called the desk twice because we had to be somewhere by a certain time and after the second call someone came. I stayed in the room while my husband went on while the batteries were changed. It was quite a procedure as the inside panel had to be unscrewed and removed and then the batteries had to be taped into the proper position. The safe should be checked and batteries replaced on a scheduled basis as should any other lighting or equipment. We did have a late night sweet in the bar and the service was prompt and the sweet was good. Overall I felt that the hotel was being run on a shoestring and needed a facelift.

Dear pbrown_011,

Thank you for taking the time to share the feedback on your stay with us and I sincerely apologize that it was not up to par. We do have a valet on duty at all times, there is absolutely no reason that you should have had to park your own car;I will make sure that we address that with our team here.

We do regularly change the batteries in our safes, I apologize that for some reason this one was not working properly and am sorry for the delay and inconvenience that caused you.

If you are travelling to Annapolis again, please contact me personally to make your arrangements so I can ensure your next stay with us is a much better one. My email is lesleyp@ocalaghanhotels.com.

Thank you again for your feedback, it certainly helps us improve.

Many thanks

Lesley

What a great Hotel. Came to Annapolis for a Navy College lacrosse game. Rooms are spacious and reasonably priced. Rooms are clean have a refridge. Beds are comfortable and a geat long hot shower was had. It is right at the beginning of town. Easy walk into town and there is a free trolley stop across thae street that will take you into heart of town so once your car is parked no need to use it. Checking in was a breeze and anytime you neede your car it was brought to front of hotel immediately. A special Thank you to Jackie (front desk) for her patience and understanding in a slight booking problem and also for making us feel like we were friends who came to visit. Overall one of the best hotels we stayed in...

Our stay at the hotel was great. The room was clean, good price for the area and very friendly staff. The location is within walking distance to shopping areas and we walked to a show at the Rams Head. For no particular reason we did not eat at the hotel but we did stop at the Irish bar in house, very nice. This is now “my place” to stay in Annapolis.

Room Tip: Our first stay here. We had a regular king room and it was nice.

We had a scheduled meeting at the hotel, only to discover that each party thought the other were making the arrangements for a meeting room and related services.
On literally an hours notice, we had our room set up, with food and beverages ready to go !!

These guys are good !!!!! Great people, great place !

I echo many of the other reviews. The staff was friendly and attentive. Neat and Clean rooms. The valet car return was always very quick. The hotel location was perfect for West Street window shopping and dining. Plus, the price was right compared to other nearby hotels.
