These days, most hotels are all non-smoking. Some hotels don’t allow you to smoke on the property unless you are inside of your own car. My wife and I stopped smoking cigarettes about 10 years ago, but our noses are still very sensitive to the smell. I can smell a cigarette from a hundred yards away. My wife and I went to visit some friends and we stayed in a hotel. Our room was on the third floor. Halfway through the first night, my wife and I started to smell the rotten stench of cigarettes. I got up and looked around the room, because the smell was so strong. I honestly thought for sure someone was inside of our room. The smell was coming from the HVAC unit. My wife and I could not figure out how the smell of cigarettes was coming from the HVAC unit. We turned off the system and the smell disappeared. When we turned the air conditioner back on, we smelled the awful stench of cigarettes again. My wife finally opened up the curtains on the window and the two of us realized that someone on the second floor was hanging out of the window with a cigarette. The odor from that cigarette was coming up to the third floor and right into our room via the HVAC system. I thought about calling the front desk to complain about the person on the second floor, but I didn’t want to be that person. Instead, my wife and I decided to sleep with the air conditioner off the rest of the night.
