With the coming holidays just days away, last-minute shoppers are flocking to DC to tackle their unfinished lists, and many are turning what could be a stress-filled weekend of crowd-surfing and deal-hunting into a fun shopping adventure. In the heart of the nation’s capital, the Renaissance Washington DC Dupont Circle Hotel is providing a haven for would-be shoppers, where they can enjoy access to the best store specials and unique holiday finds, before taking the elevator home for the night.
Located steps from M street, central to Georgetown and Dupont Circle, the hotel is just a short walk from some of the area’s best known boutiques and shops, including Barneys New York, Anthropologie, the Nike Store, All Saints, Wink and H&M. Holiday decorations line the streets as shoppers stroll throughout the neighborhood, browsing for the best last-minute deals and looking for the perfect finds for friends and family. When they find what they’re looking for, the hotel is just a few short steps away.
Guests can unwind, recharge and continue the celebration at the hotel, which is honoring Festivus throughout the season. A Festivus pole adorns the lobby, where guests can pick an envelope and donate to a charity. A prix-fixe family meal includes dishes like jambalaya, meatloaf, candy bar cupcakes and eclairs, and guests can indulge in nightly specials in the lounge like mini reubens and lobster bisque shooters, with a percentage of sales going to charity.
It wouldn’t be Festivus without the Feats of Strength. Guests can participate by testing their might on the carnival game, High Striker, in the lobby. And instead of airing their grievances, everyone is encouraged to write on the lobby wall describing how they’d make the world a better place. It’s a unique and fun way to cap off a shopping trek to one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city.
Travelers can also take advantage of an exclusive holiday gift with the hotel’s “Our Holiday Gift to You” package, which includes up to $50 daily credit during the holiday season.
