We had booked a room at this hotel for it's convenience to downtown. We had specified a NON SMOKING room with a king bed for me and my wife. Upon arrival to the room, which had a non-smoking sign on the door, we immediately noticed a very heavy cigarette smoke smell. Upon further inspection of the room, we realized that it previously was a smoking room, that had been heavily smoked in. Looks like they just changed the smoking sign to a non-smoking sign. There were cigarette burns on the fixtures in the bathroom, and the stench was horrible. At this point, we had to be downtown, and it was useless to find another hotel on game day in Athens. As we were leaving the room and walking down the hallway to the exit, we noticed a VERY heavy smoke smell. 75% of the rooms on this non-ventilated hallway were SMOKING rooms, including the rooms adjacent to our NON SMOKING room. Needless to say, we spent the night in HELL, and a day later me and my wife have sinus issues and all of our luggage and clothes reek of stale cigarette smoke.
