May 19, 2008 By: Mark Rogers

The Honolulu Advertiser is reporting that smokers who puff away in non-smoking hotel rooms may be faced with a hefty cleaning bill that could be as high as $500, a fine one smoker was hit with when he broke the rules in the Aqua Palms & Spa, a property in Waikiki.

On average, the fee for cleaning a non-smoking is $150 to $300. The cleaning fee pays to shampoo carpets, clean drapes and bedspreads and to banish the smell of smoke in the room. Aqua’s $500 fee is meant as a strong deterrent to the behavior, and the larger fee seems to be working in most cases.

As of 2006, Marriott lodging properties in the U.S. and Canada became 100 percent smoke-free; and Hawaii-based Outrigger Hotels and Resorts and its Ohana properties have all been smoke-free since 2006.
