From opportunities to record music videos in exchange for free stays, chances to enjoy live-music performances by top artists like AWOLNATION in the most unexpected of places (like an elevator) or unusual culinary adventures featuring Andrew Zimmern, chef and host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods, all the way to discovering the local neighborhoods recommended by the hotel’s Navigator (lifestyle concierge), whenever guests stay at Renaissance Hotels, It’s Business Unusual.

 

“We want to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurial business travelers who crave the unexpected and provide them with experiences worth sharing,” explains Dan Vinh, Vice President Marketing, Renaissance Hotels. “Their experience at a Renaissance Hotel may give them a new perspective, help them do their jobs better or give them a fun story they can take home or to their next meeting.”
