The Annapolis Inn

144 Prince George Street , Annapolis, 21401-1723 USA (Show map)

About

Only one block from the center of town where historic points of interests abound, The Annapolis Inn is surrounded by the quiet and serenity of historic and majestic Prince George Street, boarded by the Chesapeake Bay, the United States Naval Academy, St. John’s College, the Annapolis City Dock, and the Maryland State House, the oldest state house in continuous use in the United States where George Washington resigned as Commander-In-Chief of the Continental Army and where the Treaty of Paris was signed ending the Revolutionary War. In keeping with its historic surroundings, The Annapolis Inn was once the home of Thomas Jefferson’s personal physician while Jefferson lived in Annapolis. Erected in 1762 the house and land were still part of England. The United States was yet to be established, and Marie Antoinette was yet to become the Queen of France. The Inn still displays the original aristocratic elegance that it possessed with spacious entertainment rooms and bedrooms, ornate gold-leaf plaster crown moldings, marble fireplaces and southern pine floors. The Inn is furnished with a blend of 18th Century furnishings from around the world accented with ten custom-made Swarovski crystal chandeliers and sconces, English tapestries, hand make oriental rugs and 100% Italian linens. Our custom designed baths have a look of rustic elegant charm with combinations of tumbled, honed and polished marbles, heated marble floors, towel warmers, massage therapy tubs, showers, and bidets.

Can't wait to go back

4.6 on May 05, 2008

Having traveled to Annapolis multiple times, I found The Annapolis Inn to be the best place to stay on my most recent visit. It is truly top notch on par with places I have stayed around the world. The innkeepers (Alex and Joe) made us feel like family and were very responsive to our requests and questions. The house is exquisite and no expense has been spared with heated floors and towel racks in the bathrooms to the hand painted sinks. The location is unbeatable and extremely convenient to visit the Naval Academy as well as the downtown area. The breakfast is amazing all the way from the presentation to the various courses. We can’t wait to get back to Annapolis to stay at The Annapolis Inn again soon!

About the innkeepers

Several family members owned BandB's, and Joe was their Summer help while in school, so it became a natural evolution in later years. We were both born, raised and educated in NYC. Joe worked in the field of Human Resources and Alex was a High School teacher. Alex also studied at the famous Peter Kump Culinary Institute (now the Institute of Culinary Education) in NYC. He had classes with Julia Child, Marcela Hazan, Mary Ann Esposito, Penelope Casas, Jacques Torres and Giuliano Bugialli.

Italian Panettone French Toast
Panettone is an Italian holiday bread that outrivals brioche or challah bread in texture and taste. It is made with an assortment of flavors and ingredients that give it a highly aromatic and flavorful taste. We dip the thick slices of Panettone into our own special batter to complement and accent the Italian tastes raising the dish to an extraordinarily delicious and unique taste.
