Summer of Discovery Makes Music at Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel

Local Musicians Perform at Downtown Washington, DC Hotel's Day of Discovery

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2013) - Summer begs for its own soundtrack, and on June 19th, the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel got things started with a day of music for Renaissance's Global Day of Discovery. A kickoff for the brand's Summer of Discovery, the day-long celebration was hosted by more than 100 Renaissance hotels worldwide, and this hotel in DC city center was thrilled to play a part.

The celebration at this hotel near Verizon Center kicked off with a live performance from FrameWerks, a six-piece R&B band, and finished with singer-songwriter Laura Tsaggaris taking the stage. The day gave both guests and locals the chance to discover something new, which aligns perfectly with the brand's Live Life to Discover mission.

The second-annual Global Day of Discovery is the starting point for Renaissance Hotels' Summer of Discovery, a season-long calendar of RLife® LIVE events at Renaissance locations around the world, including these downtown Washington, DC hotel accommodations.

"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."
