“Great location, nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Stayed at the Governor Calvert House for a family wedding weekend. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. The wonderful staff accommodated several last minute guests. The food was delicious and the proximity to all the historic sights was so convenient for all the out of town guests.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with others ask for the rooms that have a shared balcony.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve, and I was pleasantly surprised. I was a little leery of staying at a hotel with numerous buildings and a concierge only in the main one, but the setup was perfectly fine. We stayed in the Robert Johnson building and received a free room upgrade. The front desk and valet were very nice upon check in, explaining where to go. The concierge even provided directions to a nearby, free parking lot, allowing us to avoid the $24 valet charge. The location could not be more perfect - on a quiet Circle one block away from Main Street. Even on New Year's, a room facing Church Circle will be quiet. The only minor critique I would offer is that the heating system is a bit loud when it turns on and off - we simply slept with it off. Otherwise, a very enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: Quieter rooms will face Church Circle.

My husband and I enjoyed a birthday celebration weekend this pre-Christmas weekend. We stayed in a king room on the 4th floor of the Robert Johnson House. Lots of natural light filled our room. Our view of the water over the roof-tops of Annapolis was like a postcard. Our alternate view was of the beautiful state house directly across the street.
Extremely comfortable bed with about a million comfortable pillows.
We did not encounter any other guests at all over our 2 night stay. Needless to say, it was very quiet.
The temperature was slightly uneven; a little too hot when the heat kicked on, but a little drafty with some old windows.
We will absolutely return.

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Historic Inns this past weekend on TripAdvisor. I was delighted to read that you generated some great memories and enjoyed your stay with us.

My husband and I stayed in a King sized suite at the Governor Calvert House over the Thanksgiving weekend and we loved our time there. The room was elegant, clean, and very comfortable. The front desk staff and valet services at the Governor's House were attentive and helpful. One of the best things about the House is it is beautifully located across from the State House and just around corner from an abundance of shopping and dining choices. We were able to leave our car with the valet and never felt the need to go anywhere else because everything was so close. We are looking forward to returning to the Governor's House.

Room Tip: When booking, ask for a room at the front of the house - these will give you a delightful view of th...

The location was great, which ws the Governor Calvert's house in the State Circle. Everyone was very helpful and offered great recommendations for breakfast and helped transport our large group to our resturant. We stayed in the king size suite which was lovely. I was able to capture a photo of the sunrising over the water with my phone. Our wedding party stayed in the hotel with us as well. The double and queen size rooms were smaller. But for the price and location it was more than a fair market price. Because of the great downtown location we were able to go out and enjoy the Annapolis night life. We live in the area so it is nice to be able to pass by the hotel and reflect fondily on our memories made there.

Room Tip: Go for the best and stay in the king size suite. For a few bucks more you will have a better experi...

We stayed in Governor Calvert's house in a double room. Whilst the hotel is a historic inn, there are modern extensions and our room was in one of these, so if the character of the room is important to you then it is worth checking first.

Our rate included valet parking and breakfast, both of which were to the standard expected. The restaurant was not open for dinner as it was Thanksgiving day, but breakfast was excellent.

Annapolis is compact and the hotel is in the centre opposite the state Capitol.

Nice hotel with friendly staff, this is a solid choice.

My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary weekend at the Maryland Inn. The room and bathroom were both very clean, and the reproduction antiques add charm. Check-in and check-out were a breeze, and staff were helpful and prompt with all requests. Our package included breakfast at the Treaty of Paris, and those meals were superb. The location right off Church circle was convenient to the trolley, shops, restaurants, waterfront, and the Naval Academy.

Two nearby restaurants (just a block or so away) we highly recommend are the Piccolo Roma and the Cafe Normandie.

The reason I don't rate the property 5 stars were the following small inconveniences:

The bathroom of our queen room was tiny, which wouldn't have been an issue if there had been any shelf space. But the only wall shelf was full of supplies, tissue, rolled-up towels, etc.. The elegant pedestal sink, single hook on the back of the door and teensy tiny corner shelf inside the shower itself left no space to put any products other than the floor.

The towels and sheets were okay, above budget chain quality, but not by much. The mattress had a slight depression in the middle and clearly needs to be replaced.

OTOH, there were quite a few pillows on the bed, and the bedroom had several chairs, desk, plenty of hangers in the closet, luggage rack, large flatscreen TV and adjustable heat. And we had a great view of the capitol dome.

Despite the inconviences, I would stay there again, but I'd be sure to pack some over-the-door storage for toiletries, and maybe bring my own pillowcases.

Room Tip: Breakfast is served in the Treaty of Paris at the Maryland Inn, so I'd request a room there if p...
