True, I picked the smoking room as it was the right size and there were no non-smoking rooms left. We did make it clear that we would prefer a non-smoking room but it seems none was available. "Smoking Room" is an understatement. It was a "Smoking Den". The first night we could not sleep because the stench was so intense. We advised the front office and they cleared the smoke and put a special filter which made it more bearable for the next couple of nights. Now the good part: Great Doubletree Service. Great Doubletree Cookies (plenty of them). Nice size room. Excellent in room Coffee (Wolfgang Puck). Perfect location in Waikiki. Near the action but not too near. Easy access. Nice surroundings. They do respect the HHonors Gold Status (Internet, Continental Breakfast and Cookies) Nice Bell Boys. Nice supervisor (gave us Cookies). If it wasn't for the smoke I would have rated it better. They should have done the smoke cleanup before we arrive and not waited until we complained. It was really unbearable. Otherwise good value (if you get a non-smoking room).
