The DC-Baltimore area is served by 3 international airports (BWI, IAD, DCA). Public transportation from the airports into Annapolis is limited, therefore we recommend taking a shuttle, taxi, or renting a car. Parking at the hotel is only by valet ($24 plus tax/tip per night). Parking is also available at nearby downtown parking garages (, ~$12-16 maximum per day). Within downtown Annapolis, trolleys, buses, and walking are the best modes of transportation. There are many excellent restaurants, bars, and sights within walking distance of the hotel.
