Whether checking social media, responding to work emails or online shopping, mobile phones can consume us. This offer from QT Hotels and Resorts gives guests a chance to pull the plug on digital baggage.
QT Hotels and Resorts is prominent in Australia and New Zealand. The Power Down offer gives guests a reason to disconnect. Upon arrival, guests give their phones to the hotel for a self-imposed 12-hour (or longer)break.
Guests arrive and the hotel takes care of participating guests’ phones 7 p.m.–7 a.m. During this time, guests are treated to extra amenities in their room and at the property’s bars. In-room amenities include complimentary wellness bowls, juices and supplements or wine and cheese at the bars on property.
Guests also receive in-room wellness gifts to support them throughout their time without their device. The goal is to center guests without succumbing to their nomophobia, or the fear of being without a mobile phone.
Guests can check out the new offer online.
