This Hotel Will Give You A Discount For Not Using Your Phone On Vacation

Sometimes screens offer a welcome distraction from the daily grind, but what about when you’re on vacation?

With study after study suggesting that phones and other devices distract us from family time, one hotel is launching a program designed to help guests connect with each other rather the internet.

Wyndham hotels are offering customers a five percent discount if they agree to literally lock away their smartphones.

The special “Reconnected” program will provide families with a safe on a timer that won’t open until the predetermined time has expired. In exchange, guests will get a blanket fort kit and an Instax camera to capture memories.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The program will be available at select Wyndham Grand hotels (including Clearwater Beach, Orlando Bonnet Creek, Chicago Riverfront, Hotel Galvez and The Mill) from Feb. 23 through Sept. 3.

Sounds like a great way to recapture family time and spend less time hunting down chargers.
