Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel Kicks Off Summer With Renaissance Global Day of Discovery

Event Marks Start of Summer of Discovery at Dupont Circle Hotel

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2013) - Summer is all about exploration, whether traveling to a new destination, taking a class or visiting the gems just around the corner. Renaissance Hotels celebrates this spirit with the Summer of Discovery, a season-long calendar of RLife® LIVE events at Renaissance locations around the world.

To kick things off, more than 100 hotels around the world hosted a Global Day of Discovery on June 19th, and the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel was excited to participate in the second annual event. This hotel near Georgetown, DC welcomed both guests and locals for food-centric festivities hosted by food writer Nevin Martell. Local micro-brewery DC Brau sampled beer, Capital City Mumbo Sauce provided tasty treats and DJ Adrian Loving kept the party going.

The chefs at this hotel near Adams Morgan flexed their culinary muscles, too, turning out delicious (and beautiful) dishes including Capital Chicken Wings tossed in Mumbo Sauce and "Steak Em" Chili Half Smoke hot dogs.

"We make a promise to our hotel guests that every time they step into a Renaissance Hotel they are inspired to discover and experience something new and meaningful," Toni Stoeckl, vice president for Renaissance Hotels, says. "Celebrating Day of Discovery is just one way we are helping guests to Live Life to Discover this season by encouraging both travelers and locals to make the most of their time by visiting a new local art gallery or listening to an emerging musician perform in one of our hotel lobbies."

The Global Day of Discovery was just the first event on this Dupont Circle accommodation's summer calendar. To find out what's happening here and at Renaissance hotels around the globe, visit, or connect with the brand on Facebook ( and or Twitter (@RenHotels).
