My suggestion: use OpenStreetMap data instead. You get OSM vector data and load it in software like Maperitive which actually has an imitation of Google Maps style and then either export it into a bitmap with a custom DPI or into SVG, which you can then load into Inkscape or Illustrator.
You can even add your own POIs before exporting, but that requires a little bit of learning of OSM and Maperitive.
Here's a sample rendering of Berlin with Google Maps-like style I've made some time ago with Maperitive (click here for the full size):

Does anyone has experience with printing out maps from Google Maps? I am trying to add specific icons representing various points of interests on a map. Is there an easy way I can do this on Google Maps and then print it out? Otherwise, do I have to export the map out as a graphic and then to add the icons from there?
