Will smoking still be allowed in rooms?

I was wondering...once the smoking ban goes in effect, will there still be rooms available that allow smoking? I've reserved a smoking room at Caesars for November, but now I'm wondering if the whole casino/hotel will be smoke free?

I believe there will still be smoking rooms.

Last time we were in Vegas we encountered something truly stupid. We stayed at Excalibur. We had a non-smoking room on a floor that was supposedly entirely smoke-free. However, right as you came off the elevators, there was a little sitting area and smoking was permitted there. So much for the floor being non-smoking. You had to walk through it to get from the elevator to your room and the smoke drifted down the hallways so the entire floor reeked of smoke. The room had a faint odor though it was tolerable.

Just to hopefully clarify the smoking ban....the casinos will be completely smoke free as of 10/15 in NJ. This is through an ordinance enacted by the Atlantic City Council, NOT the State of NJ. The State law still applies as far as restaurants, etc., and permits a hotel to offer up to 20% of its rooms as smoking rooms. Note I said "permits" not mandates. The generally idea is that your hotel room is not considered a "public area" so you are free to smoke in a smoking-designated room. (I won't speculate about whether rooms used by "working girls" are "public places" :)

The casino floors will be smoke free and it is way too late for an appeal on this issue so it should be considered a done deal.

PA casino floors go to 75% smoke free as of 9/11. If and when casinos are built in Philadelphia, however, they have to abide by Philadelphia's law which bans smoking entirely on the casino floor. PA casinos outside of the city limits are subject to the state law of 25% max. Indian tribes who own or operate casinos in PA will have to abide by the 25% law because these casinos are not on tribal lands as they are in CT and elsewhere in the US.

I hope that clears the smoke on this issue :) [sorry, couldn't help myself!]

I booked a smoking room at Ballys 10/31...I was under the impression that the resorts were mostly non smoking rooms. I was shocked to see that they all pretty much still have smoking rooms.

As far as not wearing a seatbelt...feel free to drive 85 miles on the Garden State Parkway too!!!

You can choose not to wear your seatbelt..... And you may be ticketed in a state where they are required by law

choosing to not wear your belt puts you at risk alone, smoking will put everyone around you at risk.
