Very interesting smoking survey from HET

I just did an online survey from HET. It started asking about how many times I visited in the past 12 months and which casinos I visited but then moved onto the smoking issue. They asked if I smoke and how the smoking ban has influenced my visits.

What I found very interesting was they then asked how I would change my visit pattern if Showboat became TOTALLY smoke-free. I really hope they get a positive response to this and make the place 100% smoke-free. Of course, I said it would become my #1 casino if it went 100% smoke-free. I think that would be a great solution. Allow smoking at their other properties and keep one for the non-smokers.

I found the Taj on Tuesday not smoky....but Marina was really smoking.

It would be a great compromise to see a casino from each group go nonsmoking. I may even return to HET after 5 year for that promise.

Is this a survey they emailed to you? Or one that's online somewhere?

I received that online survey as well. I was hoping that they would ask my opinions about HET properties, slot machines, customer service, etc. I was disappointed that they only honed in on the smoking issue.

Once again HET does NOT get it. They are so worried about lost profits due to the smoking ban. Why are they NOT concerned about the quality of their hotels and casinos? Basing my opinion on the Harrah's properties on the Boardwalk - all the HET properties need vast improvement in all areas.

The domination HET of the AC casino industry was the beginning of AC's decline. They can blame Pennsylvania, the smoking ban, and the economy all they want - but this still does negate the sad fact that HET is too cheap and greedy to make much needed improvements. This is the major factor in lost profits.

I also got this survey and filled it out. It seems like they are thinking about making Showboat non-smoking.
