Politics are heatin’ up, making it prime time to school yourself at the source with a visit to our nation’s capital – and not just because Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend is here. With its bevy of (mostly free) museums, a burgeoning food and cocktail scene, and nightlife that doesn’t suck, it’s no surprise The Advocate named Washington, D.C., as America’s 16th Gayest City in which to live, and that it placed amongst the 20 Gayest Cities to visit, as reported by OutTraveler.com. One more reason: Renaissance Hotels just joined the same-sex love fest with its Out in DC package.
Available at four key properties from now through the end of the year, the package is set to encourage guests to "come out and play" in DC’s many vibrant neighborhoods. Partnerships with Navigaytour and Blade magazine offer convenience, inclusiveness, as well as tailored amenities for a unique experience.
Included in the package:
- Deluxe accommodations (standard price)
- Free in-room Internet access
- A copy of the local gay newspaper and the Washington, DC Navigaytourbook, the “official” LGBT guide to the city
- Chocolate-covered strawberries
- Bottle of sparkling wine or water
Hotels include the vaunted Mayflower Renaissance in the center of Connecticut Avenue shopping, Renaissance Dupont Circle in the heart of the gayborhood, Renaissance DC Downtown, and Renaissance Arlington Capital View near Reagan National Airport.
The Out in DC Package is available now through December 31, 2012. Package rates start at $129 per room, per night and exclude tax and gratuities. Rates vary by hotel and are based on availability. Call 800-228-9290 or visit www.marriott.com/OutInDC with code VIQ to book.
