We stayed here Saturday and Sunday nights of Memorial Day weekend to attend our friend's wedding that was at the Loew's Hotel in Annapolis. While most of the guests were staying in two hotels on West Street (O'Callahan's or the Loew's), we chose to go with the bed and breakfast experience for our stay. For the same price as the Loew's, the experience at Chez Amis was much more enjoyable than staying at a hotel. First, the owners Joe and Elly are fantastic. Joe helped us avoid the Memorial Day crowds when we arrived, helping us unload our luggage curbside and guiding us to free parking at a garage a short walk from the house. Elly is very warm and hospitable, making sure we could enjoy her home as if it was our own.

Chez Amis, we found, is in the perfect location, especially with the crowds we experienced in Annapolis over the holiday weekend. It is a 5 minute walk to the waterfront shops and restaurants, and a 10 minute walk to the hotels and restaruants on West Street. The location is ideal for walking everywhere in Annapolis and avoiding having to get in the car to go somewhere. We stayed in the State House Room, and it was by far the best room we have stayed in at a Bed and Breakfast. The quality of the room and bathroom was that of an upscale hotel, but with the touches and decor that made you feel like you were in a vacation home. If you are staying in Annapolis, you should first consider Chez Amis for your accomodations.

Chez Amis has once again exceeded expectations. We spent Memorial Day weekend here this year and were here in early July last year. We love it so much that we know we will be back again without a doubt. The Treaty of Paris room is relaxing and with the recent shower renovation (love the rainfall!), it competes with the best luxury accommodations. Elly prepares breakfast every morning. This stay we enjoyed her 6-cheese spinach and egg dish, stuffed French toast, fresh fruit, and homemade muffins. All were excellent! Joe, as always, was very helpful with suggestions and directions. Maggie greeted us every afternoon when we returned from our travels. The B&B is immaculate and always in order. The little touches such as afternoon snacks, cold beverages, wi-if, movie collection, and assorted magazines/papers/games just add to the perfection. Looking forward to our next stay.

This was absolutely the right place to stay the night before our wedding. Elly was the perfect hostess (and helped us celebrate our wedding in style). The breakfast was extremely delicious, and we happened to be there with a couple who was spending their 50th anniversary (!) in Annapolis, that very day. Elly also helped us get a cab to the courthouse and didn't mind watching our things while we were off getting married. Chez Amis is definitely a place we'll be returning to for our anniversaries!

Room Tip: We were in the Law Library. It was very nice!

We travel extensively and Chez Amis is at the top of our list of places to get away.
Owners Ellie and Joe Tierney could not make their guests feel any more welcome. The rooms are beautiful and extremely clean and comfortable. We love the Treaty of Paris suite located on the first floor. It is very spacious with a beautifully upgraded private bathroom with great tile shower.
Breakfast each morning is a special treat! Ellie always prepares something special that has you starting your day with a smile.
The location is perfect whether you are walking the shops on main street, touring the Naval Academy or visiting the waterfront. You are in the middle of everything when you stay at Chez Amis.
Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful Annapolis bed and breakfast. Give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed!

We looked at all the B&Bs but picked this one because it had a king size bed available. The photos show an old commercial building so the charm is not on the outside. Well, there is a wall painting on one side, it turns out. This is not like the old houses that are a B&B. But it had its own charms.
We are glad we did choose Chez Amis. The first floor room was spacious. We are early risers and were not disturbed by others. The guests at breakfast (2 delicious) and before all joined in the conversation. Elly was most helpful and paid attention to our every need. The location could not be better. So close to everything, including the theater, which was unexpected. The deal with Harry Browne's was great as was the meal. And Maggie with her sad look and friendly disposition was an added feature. She is a dog.
We were fortunate to find parking on the street and Elly offered a hang tag that allowed us to stay. There were no street noises despite its proximity.
Looking forward to our next visit.

We loved Chez Amis! Celebrated a wedding anniversary, and it was perfect. The location can't be beat for walking around Downtown Annapolis. The owners were wonderful and made sure everything was perfect. Breakfast was fabulous! Thanks very much for everything!

This was our first stay at Chez Amis and I hope it won't be our last. The stay was a combo birthday/anniversary gift from our children and we ended up being one of three couples celebrating anniversaries that weekend. And a fourth couple actually got engaged while staying there. These circumstances gave the stay a fun, communal atmosphere. Elly was very welcoming and helpful and her breakfast was amazing. We loved the fact that we could park teh car and not have to use it all weekend, since Annapolis is very walkable and the B&B is located right in the heart of the town, surrounded by history, good food and plenty of entertainment options.
