"Get Out & Discover" is our way of bringing discovery to life for guests, allowing them to explore the best of our hotels and their destinations.”

The global “Get Out & Discover” initiative was created to bring the brand’s first-ever global advertising campaign to life for travelers. Launched in April, the “Live Life to Discover” campaign was created to provoke today’s lifestyle-oriented business travelers to explore a hotel or destination’s hidden gems.

The new multi-faceted “Live Life to Discover” advertising campaign aspires to ask today’s modern business traveler the question, “If you are traveling to a destination for business, why not make the most of your free time and discover something exceptional and unique?” The visually stunning print advertisements depict off-the-beaten path recommendations from various hotel Navigators who curate unforgettable moments for guests around the world.  The multi-million dollar global advertising campaign is currently running in 32 countries and can be found in key lifestyle, business and travel print media, as well as out-of-home sites in China and India.
