I am a wedding planner and recently worked with the AWH on a 200 person wedding. Melanie and her team did an amazing job! The room has a simple and clean aesthetic that makes it easy to add your personal style and create your own, unique design. AWH sits directly along the the water at Ego Alley (awesome photo ops) in downtown Annapolis. There is a fantastic patio off of the main gathering space for cocktail hour and lounging. This is not your "ordinary" hotel ballroom and you will not be disappointed in choosing AWH to host your wedding!

I am so happy we chose the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel (Marriott) for our reception. The wedding coordinator, Melanie, is AMAZING. Seriously, you will want to be best friends with her. She made the planning process so easy. She worked with our budget, responded to emails quickly, answered all of my questions. She was so sweet, honest, sincere, and she made us feel so special and gave us so much attention. She made sure that everything on our wedding day was perfect. If I could do it all over again, I will still pick the Waterfront Hotel just to work with Melanie.

It is a bit expensive, but we paid for the convenience of being downtown, close to a church, and being attached to the hotel. The venue is beautiful, right on the water. We got so many compliments on the food. The service was outstanding. It could not have gone any better.

It's not until you're already knee-deep in planning and just a few months from the wedding that you realize how fortunate you are to have everything in one spot. The Annapolis Waterfront takes care of it all, from space for both halves of the wedding party to get ready to a ceremony (with rain plan!) location to the reception to even a room for your first night as a married couple. This means so much less stress when trying to wrap up all the other details! Questions about the ceremony? Talk to Hilary! Questions about the menu? Talk to Hilary! Suggestions for where to take photos? Talk to Hilary! Everything is high quality and classy, just as you would expect, and the whole staff works hard to give you what you want and make the day run smoothly. There is a lot to be said for the benefits of experience, and that is felt full force with all the care and dedication you receive. You won't be disappointed!

I am absolutely speechless with the quality of service and support I received from the Waterfront Hotel! We began working with them a little over a year before our wedding date. Melanie, the Catering Sales Manager, (in addition to Lindsey) was with us every step of the way! She was such a dream! I was planning my wedding from afar, and I can't imagine having to do it without Melanie. Not only was she responsive to our budget constraints, she worked hard to ensure that our vision and quality desires were met!

The hotel itself offers a beautiful venue. Overlooking Eagle Alley in Annapolis, there is hardly a better view to be had! The rooms were all recently redesigned and are stunning, comfortable, and easily manipulated into the design you see for your wedding.

The food and the service was also incredible. No dry chicken, or over cooked steak here! Its quality food, and for a price that makes sense. Our server, Cheryl, was on top of everything and made sure that my husband and I had nothing to worry about.

This is a slightly expensive venue, but the quality of your event is unrivaled. It was a pleasure to work with this venue, and I feel so fortunate to have had them as part of my day!

I cannot say enough good things about the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel (Annapolis Marriott). My husband and I were torn between two vendors, but we ended up picking the Marriott because I loved the coordinator, Melanie. From the moment I sent in an online request to receive more information, Melanie was always so fast to respond and incredibly helpful - I just knew our special day would be in perfect hands! She was helpful in recommending vendors, providing suggestions and answering the million questions I always seemed to have.

When we had our tasting six months before our big day, we selected three entrees we wanted to try, several appetizers and we also were able to try each salad option. We also tried all of the house wines, and our server, Orlando (who also was a bartender at our wedding) made sure our glasses were full the whole time - which made for a really fun afternoon! We knew we'd be selecting the cheaper option entrees based on our budget, and we were very impressed with the portion sizes and how great they tasted! We ended up selecting the Chicken Picatta and Caribbean BBQ Salmon.

The day of the wedding, Melanie handled all of our vendors and even set up most of our decorations. Two of our vendors were VERY late, and I was so impressed with how well it was handled! The wedding, cocktail hour and reception were beyond perfect. Our guests are still raving about how well the food tasted and how on point the staff was. The bartenders were so nice and on top of things - something our crowd really appreciated. My mom (who Orlando the bartender remembered from the tasting) wanted a wine that wasn't available at our bar, and Orlando insisted on going downstairs to get it for her. She told me if she was walking around and Orlando saw her with an empty hand, he'd come up and give her a new glass. Everything was honestly so much better than we ever expected!

Thank you, Melanie and the Marriott staff for making our special day beyond perfect!

My Reception was at the Marriott, and it was an AMAZING DAY! The view is amazing, and guests spent a ton of time outside on the balcony. I have gotten so many complements about the food (a combination platter of steak and crab cake). I worked with Melanie to set everything up, and she was very helpful, flexible, and encouraging. We were able to add in a guest the day before the wedding. My reception went very smoothly, and as the bride, I didn't have to worry about anything.

Thanks for a wonderful wedding reception!

Hilary and team at the Marriott are amazing. They helped me to plan every detail from food tastings to the plan for the evening. I can honestly say that Hilary and her team allowed me and my mother to relax and truely enjoy the evening. They met with all the vendors the morning of so that everything was in place and were very flexible with quoting the bill and last minute changes in the head count. The food was plated and amazing and the bar tenders were polite, fun, and efficient. We could not have been happier with the location or the view. The only downside is parking when Annapolis gets busy but there is valet parking at the hotel.

As if the view of the Annapolis Harbor from the Annapolis Waterfront Marriott does not position this venue within the elite wedding sites of this area, the style, professionalism, and expertise of the hotel and catering staff secures their position at the top of the list. Courtney Ritterbush handled every step of the wedding planning process with an ease and grace that constantly calmed me as the bride. She is the reason every bride think’s they can be a wedding planner because she made it look so easy. Courtney was extremely attentive and available. She always answered my questions, which oftentimes there were many. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
On the day of the wedding, Alvin helped with our preliminary set up. Alvin was also very attentive and helpful. We had an illness in the family and many members could not come at the last minute, therefore we needed to make a lot of last minute changes. Alvin calmed my nerves and took care of any changes that needed to be made. When Courtney arrived for the day, she took care of everything, from making sure the table arrangements were in place to maintaining vendor contact. I was able to soak up each moment of my day because of Courtney’s unmatched professionalism.
I would also like to note a lovely lady named Alberta working at the front desk. While setting up the bridal holding room, she was our go-to front desk staff member. She took care of anything my bridal party needed while we were getting ready, which is just another testament to the never-ending professionalism at the Annapolis Waterfront Marriott. I cannot imagine planning my wedding, or having such an exceptional day, without the amazing support and service provided by Courtney and the entire hotel staff.
