The past is very much a presence along the streets, docks and waterways of Annapolis, Maryland. Brimming with history, the cobblestone streets are lined with boutique shops, eclectic eateries and unique architecture. The water offers its own agenda, with adventures from paddle boarding to sailing, tours of the United States Naval Academy and dining that features fresh local seafood, including Maryland’s famous blue crab.


Nestled in the heart of it all, the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel is the city’s only waterfront hotel. As a member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, the hotel provides uncommon luxury – with remodeled rooms, upgraded amenities, personalized service and breathtaking views all part of our allure. Flexible indoor and outdoor function spaces and a sophisticated take on meetings and special events make the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel a refreshing choice.


Each of the hotel’s 150 rooms has recently been updated to reflect the character of Annapolis. Mixing the vibrancy of this maritime city with a legacy of sophisticated hospitality, each room is completed with luxurious amenities, including C.O. Bigelow bath products and Starbucks coffee, and decorated with a palette inspired by the Chesapeake Bay. On-site business center, sundries shop, fitness center and valet parking are just a few of the most appreciated services.


Over 8,200 square feet of sun-doused and flexible function space allow either the board or the broader team to work and socialize in complete comfort. Enjoy the big things, like panoramic views of Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay, and the little things as well – like WiFi where you need it, meals masterfully rendered and experienced event staff to assist with every detail. Be sure to include an event on our newly redecorated, four-season outdoor patio.

Experience Annapolis through the lens of its diverse dining scene – where Maryland’s blue crabs share the stage with everything from ethnic favorites to comfort food. The food, friendly vibe and Annapolis’s only dockside seating at Pusser’s Caribbean Grille allow you to drink in the local scene without ever leaving the hotel and its grand harbor view. A wide variety of restaurants and pubs are within a short walking distance.


Compact and easily walkable, downtown Annapolis is home to more than thirty historical sites, including the United States Naval Academy and Maryland’s State House, which can be discovered and explored independently or as a group on foot or via trolley. Downtown’s beautiful boutiques, welcoming pubs, lively music venues and eclectic galleries can also be enjoyed during free time or as a group.


No trip to Annapolis would be complete without spending time on the water. Groups can experience sailing the Chesapeake Bay aboard Schooner Woodwind, paddle boarding with Capital SUP or cruising Annapolis Harbor via water taxi–all departing right from our hotel dock. Enlist the help of a trusted local event/team building planner, Destination Paradise, or ask your sales and catering manager for additional suggestions for off-site activities.
