We are local Annapolitans and stayed at the Loews Annapolis back in July when a storm left us without power in the middle of a terrible heat wave. We chose Loews because we knew they took dogs, which was perfect for us. They gave us a little gift bag for our dog and were overall very accommodating to all of the locals who needed a place for themselves and their pets.
Our room overlooked a courtyard, which for me, was a letdown. I'm not sure how many rooms have a view of the actual outdoors, but if we were ever to stay there again, I would definitely try to get one. The courtyard not only provides little "view", but it can also be a little loud at times with kids running around, etc. The service was fine, but I definitely felt like they were doing us a favor. When we decided to extend our stay indefinitely, we were told we could cancel as late as the day of. We really appreciated this, given the situation, but the girl at the desk made sure we knew what a favor they were doing for us. ("I don't know how we're making any money here!") We were there for three nights and the bill was close to $1000 (for three nights), so I can guarantee they were making money. I read that they were only charging $99/night, but we were never told about this rate and, if it is true, I feel like I was cheated of that money. (We payed upwards of $200/night...an unexpected expense in our summer.)
Overall, it was a good experience. It wouldn't be my first recommendation for friends and family coming into Annapolis, but it is definitely a good option. The location is within walking distance of everything in downtown, including the beautiful neighborhood of Murray Hill. We enjoyed the "city living" for a few days, and I admit I was a little sad to move a few miles further out of town when our power came back on (finally!)
Make sure to join their rewards program, which costs nothing. This got us free internet. There is valet parking, but we parked a little further down in the lot and paid nothing (well worth a <5 min walk to hotel.)
And, of course, welcome to Annapolis and enjoy our quaint hometown!
