Companies Going Smoke-free
In a hotel-chain first, Westin Hotel & Resorts (starwoodhotels.com) has just enacted a smoking ban in the guestrooms and public spaces in all of its 77 U.S., Canadian, and Caribbean properties. The Westin Chicago River North, Westin New York at Times Square, and Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort are doling out free one-day passes to fitness centers for guests who turn in a pack of cigarettes at check-in now through Apr. 30, 2006. The River North's shop is stockpiling Nicorette gum, patches, and inhalers. Also jumping on the fresh air bandwagon, Six Flags is expanding its current policies (no smoking in children's areas, ride lines, or water parks) to create isolated smoking zones.
