In a time when hotel competition is fierce (with a surge of new hotels and resorts opening worldwide and more than a dozen new hotel and resort chains debuting in the past five years), guests are able to make an informed decision when booking their rooms. This also applies to smoking policies. More hotels are actively making a point to let potential guests know that they are non-smoking. Some hotel chains now reference their non-smoking policies, but many still do not list this information on their websites as the smoking policy can often be dictated by the actual property. If their policy is not listed, smokers should assume these hotels are non-smoking. To be sure if the hotel you want to book is either smoker-friendly or smoke-free, it’s always best to call the hotel directly.
Many hotels that do not allow smoking inside their guest rooms or public areas, may provide a smoking area outside the hotel’s physical building or in a courtyard or garden. This, however, is not considered an option for most leisure and business travelers who smoke.
When it comes to hospitality, an important thing for hotels and other businesses to remember is that one size does not fit all.
