There's a Westin about a mile from the harbor.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

Most of the hotels outside of town have free shuttles to the show so don't be wary of being farther out. Less expensive, too. Before we started sailing down we stayed at Lowes and the hotel next door (Irish name, can't remember what it is) because we liked to be within walking distance. I always had to call for reservations by February or March. They fill up quickly.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

If you're trying to reserve a hotel room for this year's show you'll probably have to stay in Baltimore or one of the hotels near BWI. Commuting across the Bay Bridge to hotels on Kent Island/Grasonville can be an option too. Now would be the time to start thinking about reserving a room for the 2015 show.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

Checkout hotwire.com and see how you do. We have had good success with them, as long as you don't mind not knowing what hotel you are getting. Their star rating is pretty conservative.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

I believe the hotel with the Irish name is O'Callaghan Annapolis Hotel.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

DC and Baltimore are much bigger towns than Annapolis, and you can combine the boat show with some DC sightseeing if you stay in DC.

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

Consider Bowie or BWI area as mentioned. You may get lucky finding a room private redsidence or B&B like many do doing graduation week from the Naval Academy.

Cheers

There's a LOT of hotels within 10 miles of Annapolis. Any of the hotel search engines will find some for you. There are a few that won't give you a name until you commit, but most do. I've used Expedia quite a bit. Thursday is the best day to go, it's VIP day. Costs more but crowds are a lot smaller.

If you have to drive into town,most people go to the Naval academy football stadium parking lot to park and they have buses to take you right to the gate. The wait time is seldom more than 5 minutes.
