We are coming down the 1st week of May and staying at the Westin St. Francis as part of a work related bonus award. My DW and I have yet to explore S.F. and will extend our stay a few extra days. For a change we thought to stay at the Handlery a similar quality hotel. DW is a smoker and was wondering if a smoking is allowed outside the room on the balcony. If not, are there areas where smoking is allowed?
In Canada the rules seem the same with regards to distance from an entrance and in certain public places such as line ups, bus shelters and what not but she is curious if the laws are more stringent in Union Square area.
