Smoke-Free Hotel Rooms

There are few things in life more disgusting than the rancid smell of someone else’s cigarette smoke entrenched deep within the curtains, carpets, and bedding of a hotel room. Gag!

No offense to you smokers out there, but your stink remains long after you’ve checked out. Even non-smoking rooms tend to be similarly soiled; smoke, after all, floats around and settles where it pleases.

That’s why I was excited to learn that one hotel chain is doing something about it. Westin Hotels & Resorts have now banned smoking entirely within their establishments. In doing so, they had to throw away all the bedding and drapes — the lungs of the smoking rooms — and thoroughly de-stench entire hotels.

I don’t know about you, but Westin has now won my business. And now Marriott is following in their footsteps. Thank you!
