Annapolis, Maryland Hotels and Travel Guide
Founded by Puritans in 1649, Annapolis has been nicknamed “America's Sailing Capital.” If you’re looking for Annapolis hotels, Extended Stay Hotels has two great places to stay, both offering great rates.
The United States Naval Academy is by far Annapolis’ most famous resident. Since its establishment in 1845, the Naval Academy has graduated more than 60,000 men and women into our nation’s military service.
Annapolis is also the capital of the State of Maryland and home to many of Maryland’s government offices. The historic state capitol building is just four miles from either of the Extended Stay Hotels locations.
In addition to government, defense and aerospace are important industries in Annapolis. ARINC, a provider of communications, engineering and integration solutions, is the city’s largest private employer. Also located in Annapolis are several facilities owned by global security giant Northrop Grumman Corporation.
After you are done doing business in Annapolis, be sure to set aside some time for leisurely activities. Baseball fans will want to know that the Baltimore Orioles’ park at Camden Yards is just 25 miles from either of the Extended Stay Hotels’ Annapolis locations. And, less than 30 miles away are the museums and public buildings surrounding our national government in Washington, D.C.
Visitors coming to Annapolis from late August through October can experience the second largest Renaissance Festival held anywhere in the country. Mimicking a 16th Century English faire, performers and visitors alike are encouraged to join the fun in full medieval gear.
Golfers should plan on playing the Eisenhower Golf Course, a terrific public 18-hole golf course that takes players through forestland, around one of Maryland's finest lakes and along numerous creeks and streams.
For a comfortable, convenient, and affordable Annapolis hotel, either the Extended Stay America or Homestead Suites Naval Academy hotels are terrific choices.
