According to Pew Research, in 2019 two-thirds of Americans said they felt worn out by how much news they read or hear every day. That was before 2020, which Hotels.com says has created enough negative headlines for one thousand years, and that the US election season is likely to make things worse.
To help at least one American escape the election coverage, Hotels.com is offering the Under a Rock apartment in Farmington, New Mexico for just $1 a night between November 2 and 7. However, the website noted that the guests should vote before they come to stay.
Voting for the US presidential election has already started, and many Americans have sent in mail ballots instead of voting in person due to the pandemic. However, the official election day is on November 3, 2020.
The phrase "living under a rock" is usually used in a negative way to describe someone who knows nothing about normal things or what's going on in the world. However, the Under a Rock apartment offers a break from the world instead.
The apartment was built just over 15 meters below ground. Even though it has TV and Wi-Fi, Hotels.com tells guests to switch them off and take a break from the news.
The election week discount for the apartment went live on the booking website on October 9, and was given to the first person to make a reservation. However, Hotels.com is also giving a limited-time 20% discount on a few other properties with "rock" in their names.
