The Marriott chain is usually our first choice, so I was a bit concerned about the previous posts about this hotel which generally stated that this property was aging and not up-to-date. But we decided to stay here based on the manager's comments to the posts indicated that the hotel had been recently refreshed/renovated. It certainly has been.
Because I post regularly on TripAdvisor, I went in with a discerning eye. Our room was spotless. Newly-painted, bedding was in perfect condition and carpets were clean. Aleah greeted us at the front desk and was so friendly and helpful. We requested a quiet room and she assured us that if we found the location too noisy to please give her a call and she'd find a quieter location. We never heard any sounds except for an inconsiderate guest who slammed their door at 7 am. I normally sleep with earplugs because of either outside noise or loud A/C, but I didn't need the earplugs this trip. Our room was on the first floor in the back of the building and it was a perfect location. No outside noise and the A/C was a steady hum. The king-sized bed, pillows and bedding were unbelievably comfortable. I woke up and told my husband that it was the best night of sleep I ever remember having at a hotel.
The pool was the perfect temperature for a very, very hot day. It was cool yet not cold. There were no towels when we first got there, but by the time we got out of the pool, a large bag of clean towels had arrived.
We chose not to eat breakfast at the hotel, but instead found a wonderful breakfast shop, Eggcellence, a short drive away. There are a lot of shopping centers in the area, so there are a lot of restaurants. The location is fantastic if you don't want to stay in the downtown, touristy area of Annapolis - and with that traffic there, I wouldn't want to. The hotel is convenient to the highway and right next to the great shopping area, Annapolis Towne Centre.
Overall, a comfortable stay. Clean, modern and updated hotel. Would definitely stay here again.
