"Best Wedding Ever"
I cannot even begin to describe how amazing it was to have our wedding reception at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. By the end of the night, nobody wanted to leave and all of our guests were saying how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Luckily enough, we were able to invite all of our guests to continue the celebration at Pusser's which is the bar connected downstairs - which was also a great experience.Sent on 05/27/2019
The Chesapeake Ballroom, where our reception was held, is absolutely gorgeous. If you're not looking to spend a ton of money on extra decorations, you won't need to because the simplicity and class of this ballroom is enough in itself. Attached to the ballroom is a covered patio that leads to a spacious outdoor patio that overlooks Downtown Annapolis and the United States Naval Academy, which is absolutely gorgeous during the day, and especially at night when downtown is all lit up. You cannot beat the views that this venue provides and we were getting compliments on how amazing it was the entire night.
The food was absolutely phenomenal and the service was beyond compare. My husband and I were treated like celebrities and the staff was always making sure our needs were met and they exceeded our expectations.
Christina was an absolute pleasure to work with. From day one, she made it easy to plan what we wanted and made the whole process seamless. I will recommend this venue to ANYONE who is getting married in the future and is looking for a gorgeous night that they'll never forget. Thank you to the entire team at the AWH from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a night we will cherish forever!

Mother of the Bride
Omg! Sarah Lubawski and the entire staff were absolutely amazing. During the planning, they were quick to respond and gave sooooo many helpful suggestions. The wedding day (June 15, 2019) was unbelievable. Sarah and the staff had everything under control- the ballroom looked beautiful, service impeccable and they even packed up all of our personal items at the end of the evening. The bride was overwhelmed with how perfect everything went at the hotel. We had 17 rooms booked by family and the bridal party and they all were very pleased. I can’t say enough great things. As a picky mother of the bride, I couldn’t have been happier! Many thanks to everyone at AWH!!!!Sent on 06/17/2019

We love, love, love working at The Annapolis Hotel! The venue and staff are impeccable! And yes, the views are pretty spectacular as well!
This is a beautiful venue for a wedding with waterfront views and within walking distance of all the wonderful things that Annapolis has to offer. What a great location for a wedding! The team at the hotel is knowledgeable and professional and the food is delicious. A true weekend experience for wedding guests.
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!
