First Nonsmoking Hotel in Puerto Rico

As of last week, the San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino is officially a non-smoking hotel and the first in Puerto Rico to institute a no-smoking policy. The ban is instituted throughout the entire hotel, including the rooms, balconies, lobby, bar and restaurants, with the hotel's Stellaris Casino following suit on March 1. In October 2006, Marriott instituted its "Smoke-Free Hotel Environment" strategy, encompassing all of the company's lodging brands in the U.S. and Canada. The program is optional for Marriott's international properties.
