My only surprise was that some of the rooms in this hotel are still smoking rooms. I booked a hotel room through a discount website and when I reached the hotel, I was stuck in a smoking room. I checked with the desk attendant if it was possible to switch to a smoking room if there was one available, but unfortunately she seemed to look down upon me when I mentioned I reserved the room from a discount internet cite instead of paying full price, and said that since I reserved the room for a discount, there was 'nothing she could do.'
Sheesh ...I'm still a paying guest at the hotel, aren't I? I was stuck with the smoking room. It was a little uncalled for, I thought.
I was only in the room at night to sleep, but myself and all my luggage smelled like smoke the rest of my trip. I thought all hotels were smoke free by now, but just be sure you book a non-smoking room if you'd like one. - Just a helpful hint from a non-smoker. Other than my personal situation/incident, great hotel and a great location.
