Stayed here for one night on a Living Social deal (excellent value). Really wanted to see Annapolis for the first time (despite living so close in the Greater DC area for the last 5 years) so I pounced. The property is about an easy 10 minute drive from historic downtown Annapolis, so if you stay here you should plan on having to drive everywhere and park.
First impression was a very clean, very modern property. Reminded me of a newer and more modern version of most of the Hampton Inns I've stayed at. That's a good thing, as I've yet to have a bad stay at a Hampton.
The desk clerk was friendly and efficient and was able to check us in early (at noon). A large wedding party was also checking in to this hotel (and filled most of the rooms). Unfortunately, they were quite noisy when they returned to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning but that's not the hotel's fault. First impression of the room was that it was clean and modern. Best analogous hotel is a Hyatt Place -- room isn't much larger than a standard hotel room but has a half divider wall in the middle between the bed and a little living area, which has a microwave, fridge, and an extra sink. Only design quibble with the room is that it's difficult to adjust the TV as far as it needs to go for comfortable viewing in the area where they placed the seats. Minor issue.
The one major issue we had (which resulted in the loss of a star) was the AC unit. Like many hotels of this ilk, they have a large unit under the window near the bed. This thing was NOISY, and awoke my fiancee multiple times during the night when it would kick in. It sounded like a chain saw revving when it started up. I also note that it was connected to a digital thermostat on the wall, which is nice, except the temperature was way off. It was utterly freezing (and I like a cold room) until we put it up to around 75, which was way off. Anything that disturbs our sleep loses a hotel at least one star, so there we go.
The complimentary breakfast the next morning was very similar to what you'd expect at a Hampton Inn. They had some hot options (eggs / sausage from a can) and a waffle maker which was a really nice tough. Everything else was similar, the coffee was nice and strong.
Rooms are very similar to a Hyatt Place with different design details.
Hotel itself is very similar to a Hampton Inn with different design details.
I recommend this property and would stay at another SpringHill Suites in the future.
