The Renaissance brand is all about lifestyle. It is all about coming to our town and discovering something new. Being more involved than just a stay at the hotel. In fact the motto of the brand is live life to discover. The Renaissance Phoenix Downtown wants that for their Navigators (the staff on property) as well as for their Discoverers (the guests) because THAT is what this brand is all about. We want to be known in the community as a hub of information and entertainment. A place that you come to for more than a hotel stay - but to be involved in discoveries of the town in which we are located. From art exhibits to parties and a sweet lounge to flash mobs - we have it all. And it finally all sunk in when we hosted a block party for the public to celebrate our second birthday. And of course - it was called #RBirthday Bash.
The theme of the part was "Denim and Diamonds" with a little casino night for charity. All the proceeds that evening went to the O'Connor House. There was mIlive entertainment by Dave Damiani and The No Vacancy Orchestra, along with signature sips, pop-up art by Shade Projects, an appearance by Boutique A Go~Go, along with a silent auction.
These palazzo pants from Jane.com were the hit of the night. And I am totally obsessed with them
- an outfit post featuring my Denim and Diamonds outfit is coming soon!
The night was a total success - we raised over $5,000 for charity! The art exhibits were awesome and it gave local artists an opportunity to show off their skills. I was able to meet discoverers from the area and discoverers that were staying with us at the hotel. The band killed it and the DJ that went in between sets stole my heart with tons of Michael Jackson - in fact my coworker and I both started doing the Beat It dance at the exact same time which was pretty hilarious. Dance parties with my coworkers, new friends, and great eats? I call that a successful night? And guess what? It doesn't stop there. The hotel hosts an R Life Live block part every quarter! So you need to come to the next one! I am falling more and more in love with my work place every day. And even though it is a challenge a lot of times - I am still pumped to be here! This is the start of something new (HSM anyone?) and something very exciting for me! What do you love about your job? What gets your pumped to go to work every day?
