Best Night of Our Lives!
We loved our wedding venue, the Hotel Annapolis! They are currently transitioning, but if you hear good things about Lowes, Hotel Annapolis, or Graduate, it's where we had our special day and it was absolutely perfect.Sent on 09/30/2019
We primarily worked with Shannon Draley in the planning stages. We picked this venue because it was local, parking was plentiful for our guests, and the convenience of having everything right there at the hotel was unbeatable. Our food, drink, accommodations, rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/dancing reception were all through the Hotel Annapolis.
Food was a top priority for us, and the hotel DELIVERED! Our tasting was easily our favorite part of wedding planning. The appetizers were incredible -- full cheese and fruit/veggie displays, mini quesadillas, shrimp wrapped scallops, beef and pickled onion crostini, bruschetta, and mini crab cakes. We had a bountiful buffet dinner -- caesar and house salad options with toppings to pick and choose from, baked potato soup per our custom order, crab cakes with Old Bay remoulade, mahogany chicken, beef carving station, steamed broccoli and carrots, and parmesan risotto.
The entire service staff tending to us was so responsive, kind, and positive. They checked in on us frequently, assisting with set up to bring our vision to life, hunting down a nice podium for our ceremony readings, refilling our glasses and getting us drinks from the bar during the reception. Truly lovely. We felt so pampered.
The Power House was an excellent spot for us. Perfect size for our guest count. We had the ceremony on the first floor, cocktail hour on the second floor, and dinner/dancing on the third floor. They recently renovated, both in the hotel and in the Power House, to reflect a nautical/Annapolis theme. The brick and big windows of the Power House remain the most beautiful element of the space. Looking forward to getting some great pictures back soon!
We would recommend this venue to others! We were able to have a stress-free wedding because of the wonderful staff. We loved being within walking distance for historic downtown Annapolis, where we've had many a date :). We had plenty of beautiful photo opportunities, especially having our first look at the State House.
TLDR; Shannon and the service team at the Hotel Annapolis were amazing and accommodating. Our wedding day was flawless. This was the perfect event space, food, and geographic location for us as a couple to host our wedding celebration. 10/10, would recommend!

We just had our wedding reception at the Loews last month. We used their Powerhouse building and had the most unique and wonderful experience that left our guests raving. The staff was pampering, attentive, accommodating, and all around top quality. We worked with Holly Greve until her retirement, and then worked with Rosemary Whelan, who seamlessly took control of our event. They took care of everything we needed to and I would choose them again in a heartbeat. They hosted our crazy family for the weekend and gave us great cocktails (including a custom cocktail my guests demanded the recipe for), delicious food I want to go back and order, and gorgeous accommodations in the heart of the city. I would really recommend letting the Loews Annapolis handle your special event.Sent on 11/13/2017

I could not think of a better venue for our wedding. Growing up in Annapolis I always dreamed of a nautical themed wedding downtown Annapolis. My husband and I looked at over 10 venues between Philadelphia (where we currently live) and Annapolis. Holly Greve was the only person at any of these venues that asked us about our story and wanted to get to know us as a couple before trying to sell us on the location. Holly was a huge reason why we chose the Loews. From the first initial meeting until the end of our wedding Holly and her team were there accommodating any need or request I ever had. The Loews is the best hotel in town. Every detail we had planned with Holly was executed perfectly. The next day they had everything packed up waiting for us to take it away. I can't say enough about the Loews, Holly Greve, and her team.Sent on 07/30/2017
The only hiccup my family and I encountered was that we knew we had a dollar minimum to hit but we didn't realize until later that the minimum did not include tax which ended up being another $5k or so. Re-reading the contract it is stated but not clearly.
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
Friday and Sunday Wedding Reception dates eligable for Discounted Packages, up to 10% off!
Contact us directly to inquire about Exclusive Offers available to Graduate Annapolis Couples with local vendors!
First time ever.....We are offering NO MIMIMUM! We want to invite you to experience a true Annapoliatan wedding reception, where the service is second-to-none, and our hotel is located in the heart of it all.
