For the past several years, along with thousands of people, we paid paid "VIP" or "Presidential" level tickets (unlimited drinks) to various sponsored New Year's Eve events in one of DC's multi themed hotel ballrooms. These huge events suit us because we like a variety of social dancing and a sit down dinner (vs buffet). Lately we've been disappointed in the quality of the bands at the DC hotels and we came across a flyer to see "Fabulous Hubcaps" at Holiday Inn, Solomons Island. We had not seen the band but friends liked them. This hotel was an easy (70 min drive after work) from NoVA/DC and it was an all-inclusive price with room, buffet dinner, dancing, 3 drinks each, champagne toast, favors, breakfast & late checkout. When we arrived, the hotel Mgr was very welcoming. Nice room with King sized bed. Food was basic Italian and some seafood. Like the DC hotels, you sit at a table for 10. Without any diversions like early admittance to the various international ballrooms & caricature artists, palm reading, etc.. it seemed like a long wait after dinner for the band to start. The New Year's Eve party favors here were dull & they ran out of headpieces. A handful of women wore their own fancier NYE headbands. While it's fun to load up on a variety of glitzy party favors & unlimited drinks at the DC hotels, you can't beat the price for this event. We missed the sit down dinner too. What we liked was the band's music (people were dancing from the 1st song), the large wooden dance floor, easy parking & ambiance. The staff at breakfast were so warm & friendly. We would definitely return and spend another New Year's Eve here.
