Apparently there are two kinds of people: the ones who don’t need to clear their in-boxes and those who do. I fall into that second category. I tend to get a little antsy when I know those messages are piling up so this new package from The Renaissance Pittsburgh definitely caught my eye. They’ve announced a new Digital Detox package for those who are overly attached to their electronic devices, perfect for people who have come to terms with the need to recharge themselves—and not their devices—for a night.

The package includes a one-night stay in a Deluxe King Riverview room, breakfast for two and vouchers for relaxing activities such as kayaking or biking. As one can assume from the name, the detox aspect includes the surrender of laptops, phones and other devices at check in as well as the removal of the TV and iPod dock station in the room. Instead, guests will be entertained by the addition of literary classics, playing cards and board games. An instant camera rental with limited film is provided to capture the guest’s device-free adventures throughout the city. When guests are ready to check out, their devices (which have been securely stored), will be returned. 

The Digital Detox package can be purchased year-round and makes a great gift for tech-obsessed friends and family. Those interested in the package can make reservations by calling 412-562-1200 or online here.  

Nominate Someone to Win a Digital Detox Package To celebrate the new package, the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel is launching the Digital Detox Challenge where someone can win the chance to get unplugged at the hotel for a night. To enter, simply submit a story on the Renaissance Hotel’s website explaining why the nominee desperately needs a break from technology. 

Nominations will be accepted until May 15, 2018 and one winner will be selected to win a Digital Detox package.

Following months of research, technical and creative presentations, interviews and evaluations, the Allegheny County Airport Authority announced the architectural and engineering firms selected to design a new terminal that will transform Pittsburgh International Airport for a modern travel experience. 

 

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.
