A partial smoking bans in hotels do not protect guests from
dangers of tobacco.


Hotels, that have the smoking and non-smoking rooms, do not adequately
protect people from the dangers of tobacco. That is the conclusion of a new
San Diego State University study published in the Journal Tobacco Control.

Researchers took air quality readings and tested surfaces for evidence of
tobacco-smoke in a random sample of San Diego hotel rooms. Ten hotels
had complete smoking bans while 30 others had some dedicated non-smoking
rooms. Compared with hotels that prohibit smoking, hotels with only partial
bans had higher surface and air nicotine levels.


That was true even in the non-smoking rooms in hotels with a partial ban.
Only five U.S. states , Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, Vermond and Wisconsin,
require all motel and hotel rooms to be smoke free. Four cities in California,
including Santa Monica, have such a law. Researchers say guests who want
to avoid tobacco exposure should stay only in smoke-free hotels.
