Sheraton Hotels Go Smokefree

Great news in the fight for clean air:
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Sheraton Hotels & Resorts and Four Points by Sheraton Hotel brands will ban smoking at more than 300 hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Caribbean and Canada.

The new policy follows one implemented at Westin Hotels & Resorts, which became smoke-free in 2006. Westin and Sheraton are both owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

Some 8,000 rooms at the hotels will be cleaned, including treatments for air conditioning, walls, rugs, upholstery and hard surfaces.

Smoking will also be banned in public areas in the hotels but there will be a designated outdoor area at each property for guests who smoke.
Will Virginia legislators clear our state's air this year? They'll get another opportunity today.

Great! FYI: there are now TWO smokefree restaurants in Shirlington: Busboys & Poets and the newly renovated Ping (Charlie Chiang's).

You're right, I forgot. Although they don't have many choices for vegetarians, they are very accommodating.
