There are any number of hotel chains that do not allow smoking in their rooms now, irrespective of state laws.

I believe the Westin, for one, and 4 Points by Sheraton.

Well...that does make it easy for people who are too stupid to look for a non-smoking sign and make a decision as to whether they want to stay at that hotel or eat at that restaurant or go elsewhere.

All Marriott properties went non-smoking several years back. The majority of Hilton properties still offer a choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms.

I quit smoking and start vaping a few months ago. I have vaped in non-smoking hotel rooms and even openly vaped in hotel lobbies with no issues.

Word of advice about vaping on planes - some of the planes have heat detectors in the lav and e-cigs can set them off...blow it in your jacket as a precaution. I vaped on a plane for the first time going to CA the other week.

That said, when I did smoke I smoked in plenty of non-smoking hotel rooms. Go in the bathroom, turn on the fan, maybe run a little steam out of the shower for good measure....never got busted ever.

Yes, I've been to NYC and I've seen Smoking Permitted painted, with a bright colors, into the middle of the street in front of the hotel. At nite, no problem, as there isn't much traffic, no fear of getting run over, but during the daytime, Yikes! Very, very dangerous!

And if you can't smoke in front of the hotel, and you move to an adjacent, non-hotel building, do these rules prevail as well? And then what & where?
Stand on the hood of a parked car? Walk to Central park?

Actually Im all for non smoking inside any building. As a non-smoker, its hard to get the smell out of your hair, your luggage, your clothes, and somehow the smell gets inside even after you wash everything prior to leaving the hotel. You shower but use a towel that smells because though it may have been in the linen closet, the odor makes its way in there and settles on everything.
I wouldnt go as far as sending smokers a block away or down the street though, heck, just outside the door on the front porch, back porch, or the stairwell is good enough. I really dont think smokers are aware of the lingering smell because they live with it, and thats their thing, their business. But I personally dont want to smell it on me though.
I have friends who smoke and am not going to put them down for it. All I ask is for me not to smell like it.
Just my 2c.
