Historic Inns of Annapolis includes three properties in Annapolis, Maryland: Governor Calvert House, the Maryland Inn and the Robert Johnson House. Here’s what each one offers:
Governor Calvert House
The Governor Calvert House has rooms with two double beds for families (and then rooms with one king bed for couples). Rooms feature large bathrooms with tubs — a plus for those traveling with little ones. Complimentary Wi-Fi is included. The hotel is located across the street from the State House. Note: All guests of Historic Inns of Annapolis must check in at the Governor Calvert House; check-in desks are not available at the other two properties.
Situated on Main Street in Annapolis, the Maryland Inn features rooms with two double beds for families (plus rooms with one queen or one king for couples or single travelers). There’s a Stay & Play Room with a living area, as well. Complimentary Wi-Fi and access to a 24-hour fitness center are included in rates, and there’s an onsite Starbucks and full-service restaurant called Treaty Paris Restaurant and Drummers Lot Pub.
Robert Johnson House
The Robert Johnson House has similar accommodations to the Maryland House, including rooms with double beds and Stay & Play Rooms. Wi-Fi is included at this hotel, located by the Governor’s Mansion and across the street from the State House.

A fabulous location. Walking distance to the Capitol, Main Street, restaurants, shops, etc. Rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. Very good size rooms. Meeting rooms and catering are first-class too.
We stayed in the Maryland Inn, which is one of three properties located near the Capital and harbor. You have to check in at another building, which takes a little time, but there is an electric shuttle to take you and your luggage over to the Maryland Inn. The Inn is within easy walking distance to the Naval Academy and most other locations in the historic area. We did not experience any noise from the street or from other guests, although we were there in the off season. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the valet parking is prompt. There are plenty of decent restaurants and bars near the hotel. This is an old building in which many of the original details have been preserved, so be prepared for numerous changes in level (the elevator works but is funky) and small rooms. I don't understand why they put a king bed in a room that was designed for a double. I suppose guests want huge beds but the be doesn't leave room to move around easily --we had to put the chair by the door so as not to trip over it.The bathroom was clean although a bit cramped.If you like hotels with personality, as we do, this is perfect. If not, there are plenty of Holiday Inns.
