Hotel in Edison, New Jersey Invites Guests to Sip, Savor and Celebrate at Its RLife LIVE Events

An Action-Packed Calendar Makes the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel the Place to Be Every Night of the Week

ISELIN, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Traveling should be synonymous with experiencing the new and the exciting. At least that's how the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel sees it. Offering guests and locals a vibrant menu of events to try each night, its RLife LIVE calendar is designed to both entertain and highlight the best cultural offerings of the local community.

Accordingly, guests of this hotel near Rutgers University can look forward to sipping, nibbling and listening their way through their hotel stay. And because the events are usually scheduled for the evenings, travelers arriving for either business or pleasure can indulge in the best of the local arts and culinary scenes.

Case in point is the Burgers and Brews events scheduled for most Wednesdays between 6 and 9 p.m. As guests relax with a cold glass of local craft brew like Six Point Brewery's Sweet Action, they tuck into juicy burgers prepared by the hotel's nature-inspired OLIO Restaurant. (The burgers will no doubt entice guests to return for dinner another night at this dramatic space where inlaid mesquite log floors and hand-blown glass chandeliers complement the creative menu that features innovative interpretations of favorite dishes.) All this unfolds to original songs performed by the guitarist and songwriter George Smith of the band Splinter.

Events like this one demonstrate the indigenous, independent and intriguing nature of the Renaissance. And while such a reputation is enough to set the property apart from other Woodbridge hotels, it's only the beginning of what's on tap, so to speak. For example, beer enjoys another spot on the calendar but with an entirely different companion -- handcrafted chocolate -- on January 30. As part of the 2 Chicks With Chocolate event, guest speaker Tara Nurin teaches guests how to taste beer and chocolate the right way and how to arrange a happy marriage between the two.

Other nights expose visitors to equally compelling experiences. Mondays are given over to Sangria Night, for instance, and they are nicely balanced by Wine Night on Thursdays. Guests can also taste the fruits of one of the oldest and finest vineyards on the East Coast at the Unionville Vineyards tasting on January 28. Reverse happy hours and all-day happy hours litter the weekend days, meanwhile, just in time for guests to unwind after the workweek.

The RLife LIVE calendar may serve as one of the more inspired hotel deals in the Edison area, but there's plenty to recommend the property beyond it. The 22 meeting rooms, for example, can accommodate groups and special events of nearly any size, especially the 900-person Diamond Ballroom. On-site Navigators can point guests to the hippest restaurants, boutiques and events around town, and the chicly designed guest rooms feel simultaneously stylish and functional with exquisite furnishings, Plug-in Panels and decadent bedding. The sum of all these features is a premier property among hotels in Edison, New Jersey that gives guests extraordinary experiences they can't find anywhere else.
