I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and can honestly say that I slept very well. When I first arrived, I immediately noticed the smell of smoke in the room and then noticed the ash tray. I have an allergy to smoke and also have laryngeal difficulties and so am very susceptible to smoke. I immediately went back down to the front desk and asked if they had a non-smoking room. Since I have a deep and scratchy voice, it is often misconstrued that I smoke! They showed me another room that smelled just the same as the first and since I liked the location of the first room better, I decided to stay in that one. Apparently they do not have specific non-smoking rooms and since they provide ash trays in the rooms, "people can smoke in their private room". My neighbor did and I was awakened one morning by the smell of smoke. Still my room was very well situated, the staff kindly supplied an air freshener specifically for cigarette smoke and left it in my room. The staff were very nice. The room was also very quiet and situated right next to a park. I was right over the lobby and heard nothing from below. The breakfast (only until 10 AM even on weekends) was very good. I would strongly recommend to the hotel owners that they consider making one of their floors a non-smoking floor for those of us who really need it. Knowing that anyone can smoke in all the rooms will prevent me from staying at this hotel again.
