The Intercontinental Montreal is now offering a Digital Detox hotel package for those who want a brief escape from technology. In recent years, many hotels and resorts have begun catering to the needs of travelers who are looking to ditch their smartphones. This hotel package not only helps guests unplug from their digital devices, but it also helps them relax and unwind.

The Digital Detox hotel package from the Intercontinental Montreal includes a one-night stay in the hotel's Tourelle Suite, provided that guests surrender their digital devices upon check-in. Following check-in, guests will be able to access the hotel's fitness center, the water circuits at Bota Bota and spa-sur-l’eau in the city's Old Port. The package also includes cocktails at the Sarah B. bar and dinner at the Osco! restaurant. The package even include a gourmet breakfast and a selection of magazines on health and happiness.

The tech-free hotel package caters to those who are looking for a brief, yet luxurious escape from modern technology.
