Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 1, 2008
Renaissance Seattle Hotel offers guests an insider's look at Seattle's diverse gallery scene. Beginning in October, Renaissance's General Manager Rene Neidhart will guide hotel guests on an intimate, evening tour of the First Thursday in Pioneer Square Art Walk.
Winding through the cobblestoned streets of downtown's oldest neighborhood, art patrons will accompany Neidhart to the cream of Seattle's art venues, enjoying complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvre as the tour progresses. With more than 60 galleries, coffeehouses and shops participating in the Art Walk, there's something for art aficionados of every stripe. Neidhart -- an avid follower of the Seattle art scene and 15-year Seattle resident -- will escort guests on a relaxing stroll to many of the city's most highly regarded galleries. Participants will discover art in a variety of styles and media, from the sumptuous antique prints of the Davidson Galleries to the provocative modern works shown at Soil.
"Renaissance customers are explorers," Neidhart says, "so we strive to give our guests not only an exceptional Pike Place Market hotel experience, but a memorable experience in our city." With 30 years of hotel experience, the Swiss-born Neidhart chose the Art Walk as Renaissance Seattle's way to participate in Renaissance Hotels & Resorts' worldwide salute to the art that makes each of our hotel's locations unique.
For guests who don't have the good fortune to stay at the Renaissance on the first Thursday of the month, Neidhart and other Renaissance staffers can provide advice on where to find the best of Seattle's art. With tips on where to see dynamic public art installations and ornate historic buildings, the Renaissance Seattle, Washington Hotel celebrates our city's vibrant arts community.
