The Hyatt Place at the Portland Airport prominently posts signs which warn of a $200 charge if you smoke in their rooms. But what happens when the room stinks of air freshener, not smoke?
I have stayed there twice in the past month and both times I was assaulted with the smell of excess air freshener as I opened the door to my room. The basic problem is that the windows to this hotel do not open and the HVAC controls do not have a vent or outside air option. As far as I can tell, the ONLY way to get fresh air into your room is to leave the bathroom fan on for hours. I tried this and the room still reeked after 5 hours.
My guess is that the housekeeping staff uses the air freshener to compensate for the lack of ventilation in the rooms. I have complained twice to the front desk about this and their response is " we will notify housekeeping".
I am not overly sensitive to odors or perfumes , but for some reason I can not stand the smell of these rooms. Otherwise, the Hyatt Place would be my first choice of hotels at the airport
