    Don't pay rack rate!

    by

    I worked at the Colony South for almost three years, so I know it inside and out. I'll give you my honest opinion, without sugar coating. The rack rate for a standard room is $169.00--don't pay that much. You can usually negotiate a much better rate. Ask for $119.00 on a standard room, that's about what they're worth. The hotel has recently renovated its rooms and is on its way to becoming a smoke-free hotel. It is a really charming place, especially during Christmas time when the lobby is decorated, the huuuge tree is up and the fireplace is roaring. When I was working at the hotel, the front desk staff was friendly, polite and accommodating (I should know, I was the supervisor!) but I can't speak for it so much now. The operator, Emma, is a wonderful woman--and the front desk manager, Gabriela, is AMAZING. She is so warm and bubbly, if you meet her you'll fall in love with her.

    Unique Quality: There is a fitness center with indoor pool, spa services and sauna. As a guest, you have free access to the fitness center (including all classes they are offering at the time) so take advantage. It really is a great facility. On premesis is the Wayfarer Restaurant--delicious Italian cuisine. Try the Frutti de Mar. THE CREAM OF CRAB SOUP IS A MUST HAVE. They also have a nice lounge (The Decoy Lounge) with special event nights throughout the week, live bands on the weekends, and all kinds of great food specials. Wendesday night is karaoke night. It's a hoot. The International Cafe is open daily until about 5pm, they serve delicious coffee, sandwiches, soups & salads and have great lunch specials. Complimentary shuttle service to and from National Airport (call to schedule in advance) and Branch Ave. metro station. There is a laundry facility on the 2nd floor. ATM in the building... salon on the first floor (I wouldn't use it though). If you have a problem and NEED IT FIXED, Tim Nicely is your man. Ask for him specifically. There are suites--ask how much it would cost to upgrade. Sometimes you'll get a good deal. High speed internet access, balcony rooms, racquetball & tennis courts. I think I covered it all!

    Directions: Off of The Beltway 95/495 you take exit 7A (Branch Ave. South) and it will be about 5 1/2 miles down on the left hand side.

Hillary [of] Clinton

"Clinton, MD Top 5:"

Now, Clinton is by no means a tourist destination--there's not alot to offer. If, in your travels, you find yourself stationed here it probably means that you are in the military and that you've picked up a stint on Andrews Air Force Base (home of Air Force One). For several years, I worked at the front desk of Clinton's premier hotel: The Colony South Hotel & Conference Center. We caught the Base's billeting overflow on a daily basis--flight crews, Navy personnel & when the Air Show was in town The Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, Golden Knights and even the Canadian flight team, The Snowbirds were our guests. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked, in desperation: "What is there to DO around here?" I turned many in the direction of Waldorf, MD a neighboring city with a plethora of food and strip malls; or Old Town Alexandria, VA just a hop over the Woodrow Wilson bridge with some fine dining & fun shopping. But, as a Clinton-girl, born and raised, I've got to give local business, history & recreation a toot where a toot is due...

Clinton Top 5 (in no particular order):
1. Cosca Regional Park & Clearwater Nature Center: www.pgparks.com/places/parks/cosca.html
Why? Beautiful Park with man made marshlands and a lake with paddle boats. Great hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. The nature center has some wonderful exhibits, special events and a bunch of local wildlife and birds of prey to view.
2. Colony South Hotel & Conference Center (The Decoy Lounge): www.colonysouth.com
Why? Because the other bars in Clinton are dirty and gross. The Decoy has karaoke on Wednesday nights and cheap Fajitas on Fridays. Live bands on the weekend. Also check out the fitness center & spa for massage therapy & body wraps.
3. Mary Surratt House: www.pgparks.com/places/eleganthistoric/surratt_intro.html
Why? A little history. She was the first woman hanged for her involvement with the Abraham Lincoln assassination.
4. Miller Farms: 301.297.9370
Why? Fresh local produce & home made jams and jellies. A TON of old fashioned wholesale candies. AWESOME bakery with doughnuts, pies, fudge & soft serve ice cream (made with local fruit). Also, I'm neighbors with the family that owns the business and they're good folks!
5.) Texas Ribs & BBQ: www.texasribsandbbq.com
Why? Best local restaurant hands down. Carolina pulled pork sandwich with colseslaw and a sweet tea. The food is fantastic, the service is great and, on a side-note, I once won $600 playing Keno there!
