I was lucky enough to spend a night recently at the Mayflower Inn & Spa in rural northwestern Connecticut. This Relais & Chateaux, five-star, five-diamond inn and its spaespecially its spahave been lauded by just about every travel publication under the sun and accordingly, they charge sky-high prices. So needless to say, my expectations of the amenities were high. I noticed the first oneor the lack thereofwhile we were still in the parking lot: no cell service.
What does everyone think? Is enforced cell phone withdrawal a welcomed amenity or is it irritating, a tad Big Brother perhaps?
