Sarah L is the BEST! Amazing Venue and Team!

Sarah Lubawski and the entire AWH team were amazing to work with. When I researched vendors, she was the first one to return my message here on Wedding Wire. Planning my wedding out of state, I needed a responsive team, and Sarah L from the hotel was amazing. She answered all my emails promptly, always sent updated invoices and event orders, adjusted day of timelines based on my suggestions, and happily worked with all my vendors day of my wedding seamlessly. The day of my wedding she was like a ghost behind the scenes making everything run perfectly and would check on me throughout to ask if I needed anything. The food ended up being perfect and they accommodated dietary restrictions well for my bridal party getting ready in the morning and cocktail hour / reception. For being directly on the water, their pricing was comparable and even a bit better than other hotels for large parties in downtown Annapolis. 100% recommend. The day was perfect!!

Incredible team and beautiful venue!

We have nothing but good to say about this venue and the team that helped us prepare for and execute our special day! Sarah was our wedding coordinator -- working with her prior to and on the wedding day made the wedding planning process so much easier! She was extremely communicative, kind, and helped our vision for the day come to life.

We had nothing but wonderful compliments from our guests about the venue itself, food, and staff. We chose their Elite package which gave us everything we wanted and so many options! Looking back at photos and video of our day, everything looked so elegant and classy. We can't recommend the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel enough!!

The Annapolis Waterfront Hotel is one of the chicest venues for which we have done event flowers. ...And let's talk about that fabulous harbor and bay view from the gorgeous deck! Sara, the event coordinator was so responsive and easy to work with, I was so impressed. It was a joy to create floral arrangements to coordinate with such a tastefully designed event space. It made my job easy. Very impressive, Annapolis Waterfront!
