WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 -- In a city as cosmopolitan and vibrant as Washington, DC, visitors never have a shortage of things to see and do. But when the monuments have been observed, the shops have been visited and night begins to descend, what's an energetic traveler to do? That's where the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel steps in. Its new Sip, Savor and Sleep package takes the guesswork out of the evening in an irresistible way.
Guests who book the package begin the night at the hotel's M Bar with two complimentary appetizers. The distinctive hotel is located in south of end of Washington, DC's Dupont Circle neighborhood at 1143 New Hampshire Avenue and M Street, NW. The stylish hotel flaunts a cosmopolitan lobby bar featuring a rotating exhibit of local artwork. From velvety Ricotta dip with grilled rustic bread to Korean BBQ Beef "Bulgogi" sliders, to Asian chips and salsa, the M Bar's focused menu is full of tempting flavors. To complement the dishes, the package also includes two drinks. This means guests can choose from a wine of the day, select beers and a variety of specialty cocktails, including the cocktail classic with a twist like the Brazilian Cure and Cucumber Mule.
For this hotel, two Metro stops away from the hip Adams Morgan neighborhood, however, food and drink are just the beginning. While at the M Bar, guests can relax to the sound of live music -- a rotation of artists performs at the M Bar as part of its special Rlife LIVE events. And when it's time to tuck in for the night, this Dupont Circle hotel won't disappoint. The package includes deluxe accommodations for two nights where guests are treated to 37-inch, flat-panel HD televisions; plug-in connectivity panels; plush bedding; organic Aveda products; and boutique styling.
Located near such attractions as Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and numerous museums, parks and restaurants, the hotel is a prime starting point for any number of adventures, and the package's two included $10 metro passes provide an ideal way to see them.
The Sip, Savor and Sleep package is available through September 7, 2013, with rates starting at $174 per night.
