Although its redbrick exterior blends with the city's 1700s architecture, this hotel's interior is airy, spacious, and modern. Guest rooms, decorated in a sailing theme, include coffeemakers and terry robes. A free hotel shuttle bus takes you anywhere you want to go in Annapolis, and a complimentary breakfast is served in the Breeze restaurant for concierge-level guests.

We were not impressed. A week before our stay, I requested a room with a courtyard view, based on reviews I had read. I was told I was assigned room 457. I re-confirmed 3 hours before check-in while laying over in Atlanta. Upon check-in, was told our room was changed due to "inventory issues". Overlooked the parking lot. This could be "fine" if it were the only issue-read on. Valet and bell staff on check-in were nowhere to be seen even though the
desk was "staffed". Our Loews First "Welcome Amenity" which was supposed to be waiting for us at check-in wasn't delivered until our last night after multiple and repeated requests. Room doors weren't properly sealed so bright light streamed in from the hallway. The air conditioning didn't work well-had to set it way low to make the room comfortable. When I went to take a shower the next morning, there was only lotion (?!) and conditioner in the shower-no shampoo. Hot water was slow to come on and, when it did, was inconsistent. The television didn't work. They did switch our room the second night (after I complained about all the problems) to a courtyard room but, by then, my opinion had already been set. These issues could be considered "acceptable" for a less-expensive hotel, but I was paying $158 a night (plus $16/night for parking). You could pay less and get the same or better service/amenities. In this case, we definitely did NOT get what we paid for. Look elsewhere-there are plenty of nicer places to stay in Annapolis.
