not aware this wasn't permitted last time...maybe it was, maybe it wasn't... but as of now guess its a rule...
"Smoking – of any substances is prohibited throughout the building and anywhere on the premises. This is for the comfort of all our guests. No Smoking applies to ALL Substances including vaping and e-cigarettes and also applies to preparation of smokable substances. Non compliance will result in a minimum $150 cleaning charge will be added to your bill if you smoke or prepare smokable substances in your room or any public places in the building or premises. Persistence in non-compliance will result in expulsion with NO refund. Consumption of illegal drugs is not permitted ANYWHERE and offenders will be asked to leave, pay a cleaning fine and will be liable to prosecution."
can't see why there isn't an area on the grounds where one can do what they need to do but guess its their place so its their rules. Apologize to the smokers for this and perhaps this may have figured into a decision for some in whether or not they chose to come. Guess this will become a learning tool for future places we consider.
