Smoke-Free Lodging

Smoke-free travel, including transportation and lodging, is popular and becoming more common each year. Preferences for smoke-free environments continues to increase, and even people who smoke are more likely to choose 100% smoke-free accommodations*. According to the Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation there is a growing movement throughout the US toward adopting smoke-free hotel polices in large chains, small independently owned and operated facilities and bed & breakfasts. In addition to guest preference for smoke-free environments, adopting a 100% smoke-free policy can help save your business money on cleaning and renovation costs.
