Feature

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.

After the swift drop-off process, we took the escalator to the lobby to check in. With no one ahead of us in line, we were checked in and on our way to our room on the 30th floor in no time.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
