Thread: Smoking allowable hotels

    Smoking allowable hotels

    Seems my favorite hotel has gone non-smoking - Vogue. Seems the Nelligan is also 100% smoke free. Would anyone know of a smoking allowable hotel that also has a jacuzzi?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bonaventure Hilton took my reservation for a King smoking room (through Expedia), but when I got there, they said they had no smoking rooms. (They also did not have my reservation and had to call Expedia, but that is another story). But because it is only two floors, she put us on the lower floor (still at the top of the office tower), so it is a short walk to the garden to smoke. It is not the same as smoking in your room, but better than getting the elevator downstairs.

    Seems MTL is turning into California. Never have any luck in SF with smoking rooms also.

    Avoid the Marriott chain entirely. The Mormons have deemed it completely non-smoking.
    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!

    agreed. Been using Hilton holtels mostly for the last 3 years. Bonus is that they have a great travelers' program.

    BTW, I've discovered that the Hyatt has 10 smoking rooms and that the Bonaventure has only 4 since the reno. I didn't call the Queen E. I've never liked it. However, Fairmonts in general are nice.

    Maybe time to quit...although, nobody likes a quiter.

    Any recent info on this topic of smoking allowable hotels, preferably 3 or 4 star category? Before Marriott went non-smoking you could guarantee a smoking room. Now they have an expressed written policy against it and will charge $250.00 for smoking. Any comparable Montreal hotels that will guarantee a smoking room? -or- which hotels give you the best chance of getting a smoking room at check in without guaranteeing it?

    According to the InterContinental website, they have about 41 smoking rooms and the Hyatt told me they have only 9.

    Thank you for any further insight on this subject.

    Marriott is stating they are saving a lot of money with the non-smoking policy. Easier clean-up, less headhake to manage room avaliability, less carpet/furniture damages...

    I usually go to the Residence Inn on Lincoln and had some SP who went for a smoke on the balcony, even if it's not allowed. Usually, if it's done carefully, without throwing the butt downstairs or on the balcony and, being careful so the smoke doesn't blow back in rooms, they won't know so they won't complain! I tell the ladies to hide the cigarette as soon as they see another door open. All rooms have a balcony. Some are "shared" and some are private.

    How do they know if I smoked in my room?

    Do they have special sensors? Smoke detectors?

    Non-smokers will notice the smell of cigarettes right away. Especially if they are in an otherwise non-smoking environment.

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    You bet! It's absolutely right! Non-smokers don't have "smell cells" gumed-up in tar, they work! LOL!!

    In hotels, they'll go with smell but also tell-tales details. Most smokers can't do a 100% cleaning job so, there's going to be ash somewhere, tobacco particles, a drowned cigarette butt in the garbage, a glass used as ashtray but not cleaned properly, a cigarette burn on the carpet or furniture... The maids don't go around with a magnifying glass but they can often find traces...

    What is less certain is how often the hotel will actually charge the fees. Getting in a pissing contest with a customer is something they want to avoid so, unless there's a smell or damages, they'll usually don't complain.

    The problem is, a smoker, or somebody who had somebody else smoking besides him won't detect the faint smoke odor left in the room. Even a non-smoker will need to leave the room for a while (about 1 hour?) and come back later in order to notice the smell of smoke if the smoking was done besides him. If the maid is a non-smoker and she walk-in, she will pick-up any smell of smoke.
