Only once did that happen and I was walked to a different hotel, my bonus awaded, and an apology from the manager. In days gone by they could always claim that a nonsmoking room was not available but since they are all NS that;s no longer the case.
Ionization does nothng for me except give me headache. Softgoods in the room absorb the smells of smoke, and on and on. So I prefer not to inherit someone else's smoking violations.
Jerry I have not had that since Marriott went smokeless some years ago. A smoked in room bothers me so much I simply would have had to go to the lobby and sit up for the night. Marriott says if you smoke they charge you a $200 restoration fee, accordingly, I would think you would be entitled to a $200 endurance fee for staying in the room.
Thank-you both for the information. This is the first time this has happened to me and it was late and I was too tired to make a case out of it. The front desk gave me a can of "Spray", but I really got a headache from the room.
Will discuss with the GM prior to my next stay!
