Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel Entertains Dad and the Kids for Mom This Mother's Day

The Hotel's Unorthodox Package May Just Be Mom's Best Babysitter Yet

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/14 -- Much has been made of date nights among parents, but what about dates with one's self? A given period of time when a parent can forego the greatest sacrifice having children usually demands -- that of time -- to pursue interests that have nothing to do with cartoons, rainbow looms or homework. Such is the thinking behind the Leave Mom in Peace Package, one of the most inventive new offers to arrive at the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel. And it's just in time for Mother's Day.

While plenty of hotels near Georgetown, D.C. might invite mom to get away on property for a night, the Leave Mom in Peace Package takes a better approach. Inviting fathers to take charge of their children for a day or two, the promotion gives mothers the thing they want most: freedom. While they catch up on their summer reading from two years ago, indulge at a nearby spa or hit the town for the night, Dad and the kids can look forward to some bonding time within the chic confines and vibrant neighborhood of this Dupont Circle Metro hotel.

Once they check in and drop off the bags, dads and their pint-sized companions can head out to the International Spy Museum, complimentary tickets in tow, to explore the secrets behind the world's most secretive occupation. Afterwards, dads can choose an activity that best speaks to their kids' interests, whether that's rambling along the National Mall, picking out favorite animals at the National Zoo or dropping in on the White House. Families can also take advantage of their hotel's location near Adams Morgan in D.C. to explore the eclectic neighborhood's restaurants, shops and vibrant cultural scene.

At the end of the day, Dad and kids can relax in some of the most stylish Washington, D.C. accommodations in Dupont Circle. Plush bedding, flat-screen HDTVs and Aveda bath products (to remind them of Mom) all await. Dad and the kids can even plug back in, thanks to the package's free Wi-Fi access, to upload pictures from their adventures together.

After sleeping in the next morning, dads can save their wives the hassle of making at least one breakfast and take the kids out to M Brasserie. Breakfast and a late, 3 p.m. checkout are included in the package, as is a lovely bouquet of flowers dads receive to give to their wives when they go home.

The Leave Mom in Peace Package also includes valet parking and is available on May 10, 2014. Rates start at $299 per night. Dads who want to seize the opportunity to treat mom -- knowing that Father's Day is just around the corner -- should call 1-866-979-8070 to make a reservation.
