“Lovely B&B in Historic Annapolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a one day get-away to Annapolis for some much-need R&R and chose Chez Amis, based on Trip Advisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. Chez Amis is a charming bed and breakfast nestled in historic Annapolis and just a few blocks away from the harbor and many shops/restaurants. We were warmly greeted by Elly and Joe, who provided many helpful suggestions regarding where to have dinner and other local attractions and checked us right in to our very comfortable and elegantly-appointed room (love the Parisian theme). Our room was very clean and large, had a king sized bed and toiletries provided. There was no detail forgotten and we had a very comfortable night's sleep after enjoying a nice seafood dinner at Carrol's Creek.

Breakfast the following morning was delicious and filling, with warm zucchini nut bread, berries with cream, and a cheese and artichoke egg bake with turkey sausage. There were beverages, home-made cookies and candy available at anytime for guests. I would highly recommend this lovely B&B to anyone planning a trip to Annapolis.

We loved our stay at Chez Amis! Elly was a wonderful and made us feel very relaxed and at home. We also had a service dog who was very welcomed by both Elly and her own dog. The bed was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and more than enough to fill us up. Overall a very nice experience.

My wife and I stayed at Chez Amis while visiting relatives in the Annapolis area. Chez Amis was my favorite B&B stay in years. The inn is beautifully decorated, exuding dedication to its French theme and to the history of the city. It was clean and comfortable and convenient to everything in the historic district. Tthe Naval Academy, the historic area and its waterfront are a short walk or water taxi ride away. Breakfasts were imaginative and delicious and other guests were friendly and engaged. Elly's hospitality was unbelievable. She provided great advice on restaurants and useful advice without being intrusive at all. After we left for dinner she noticed that we had left a small bag with some gifts for our relatives behind, then personally walked to the restaurant, bringing us the bag minutes after we left. We will be back again when we are in the area.

Room Tip: One room opens into the living room but guests there said that their room was quiet and comfortable...

There is no on site parking. However, there is a garage a few blocks away. The location is in a small quite town. Easy walking distance to boutique stores, a local theatre, and dining. While sleeping in the room, I could hear people outside talking, skateboarding, etc. Perhaps, they were leaving the downtown bars. The innkeeper has a fairly good size dog that will greet you at the door. We had a good hot breakfast although a little crowed for 8 at the dining table. My room was clean, and I would stay there again. I've stayed at lots of B&B's up and down the East Coast. Chez Amis was very comfortable and down to earth...a place to relax and enjoy the town. It's a nice change from traditional hotels.

Room Tip: A great place to stay during a Navy game or that boat show.

Elly T, Owner at Chez Amis Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 7 November 2013
We’re glad you liked our cozy bed and breakfast right here in your home town of Historic Annapolis. Regarding parking, your stay here was via a gift certificate so perhaps you didn’t see our website that describes parking in the public garage just down the street and our 50% discount off that modest parking fee. Thanks for, on average, the 4 out of 5 stars for the TA sub-categories, we’ll assume the overall rating of 3 is a TripAdvisor programing anomaly. Hope to see you again soon!

This was the first time my husband and I had ever stayed in a bed and breakfast and we were a bit hesitant but Chez Amis exceeded every expectation we could have had. It was extremely clean and struck the perfect balance of having all of the modern amenities but keeping the Annapolis charm. Elly was such a wonderful host - she was so welcoming and willing to help with anything we needed and WOW ... her breakfast cooking was amazing!! Chez Amis is in the perfect location to explore Annapolis and is within walking distance of absolutely everything, including great restaurants and shopping. Elly seems to have thought of everything to make people feel welcome - my husband and I shared our news that we were expecting and wanted to have a quiet getaway before the baby and when we came back that afternoon she had an adorable baby gift for us - so thoughtful! Seriously, Chez Amis is a must-stay if you are going to be in the Annapolis area - we sure hope to make it back there!!!

My husband and I cannot say enough great things about the Chez Amis B&B! Elly was a wonderful host. Her cooking was phenomenal; we very much looked forward to her breakfasts each morning and all the little details that made the meal above and beyond enjoyable. Beyond that, the room (Law Library) that we stayed in was clean and very comfortable. Elly went out of her way to make our stay special and we would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway to the beautiful town of Annapolis!

So I'm that guy that usually thinks BandB's are somewhat weird and would rather stay in a big hotel. HOWEVER-- I would come back here again and again. This is a GREAT stay. Wonderful husband and wife running it. Very welcoming. Very clean. Great breakfast. I left an item of clothing and the owner washed it and mailed it back to me within a week. Great location-- you can walk to all of the downtown restaurants. Also a lot of great amenities: soda, some beer, water, cookies, coffee, tea, board games and a really good selection of dvd's that we watched in bed that morning. Overall-- a great value and wonderful Inn.

Room Tip: The downstairs room (not sure what its called) is very roomy and very private.
