Very convenient location. Stayed there every year for the past 11 years. We never use the car after we get there. Just walk everywhere. Hotel is in the process of remodeling. Minimal disruption. Would highly recommend.

I'm sorry, there are no smoking rooms. We have designated smoking areas on property, but rooms and balconies are smoke free to ensure the cleanest and freshest environment for all guests.
