Renaissance Times Square Staycation (plus win a stay!)

renaissance-timeout-staycationI’m so excited! As some of you may remember, Charlie and I partnered with the Renaissance Hotel in Times Square a few weeks ago for an epic staycation and our campaign video is now done. The video really says it all, but to be in gorgeous, spacious room, at a pet friendly hotel where you have the pulse of the city at your finger tips and then as soon as you close the door it is so quiet and tranquil was magic. And the unexpected lambs and details in the hotel and on the balcony was such a cute touch! (Also scroll to the bottom for your chance to win a 2 night stay and exclusive discounts!).


As you can see from the video we had an absolute blast during our stay. The theme was #UnexpectedNYC and they delivered! Owned by the Marriott, we had a beautiful, newly renovated terrace room on the 4th floor with a balcony that overlooked Times Sq. I mean, look at this view from my balcony! All of Times Sq is behind me!

Stay Here: Renaissance Hotel Providence Downtown


Over the weekend I visited Providence for PVDFest, which celebrates the arts in all forms. Live music, dance, parades and visual art lines the streets for the four day festival. Perfectly located in downtown Providence, with a nothing of a walk from the train station (just a few blocks), we stayed at the Renaissance Hotel. As part of our stay they took us on a tour of the historic building turned ultra modern hotel which originated as a Masonic temple in the 1920s (the blueprints still reside on it’s walls).


With a grandiose lobby, extremely friendly and helpful staff the hotel features 9 floors, 264 rooms, 8 suites with 46 different variations of layouts to match your needs.


I stayed in beautiful room number 935 on the top floor with up an unbelievable view of the State House. Featuring the most comfortable king size bed, desk, and television, which I was too busy exploring to watch it was a very welcoming stay. I also loved the sign in the bathroom which read, “Think less, live more.”




Other amenities of the hotel included fitness center, meeting rooms, club lounge. As well as high speed internet for the rooms and complimentary wireless in all lobby and public areas. The hotel also featured a downstairs bar and restaurant called Public Kitchen.

On Wednesday evening, I was invited to R Lounge in the Renaissance Times Square hotel for Nivea’s announcement of their newest Celebrity Kiss Ambassador Couple and unveiling of the 2013 New Year’s Eve Program. And the couple is… Extra’s (and now X Factor host) Mario Lopez (or as I prefer, AC Slater) and fiance Courtney Mazza!
