Marriott’s Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel is helping people unplug and recharge with their “Zen and the Art of Detox” weekend package.
At check-in, participating guests surrender their laptop, iPhone and other digital devices for safekeeping until departure. Literary classics and other forms of analog entertainment fill the digital void inside deluxe king rooms. Package rates vary between $199 – 399 per night.
In the future, helping consumers unplug may be as valuable a service as connectivity once was.
