InTown Suites - Smoking Away
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- I have had cause to make a vocal complaint against Intown suites in Austin Texas. I have been greeted on a daily basis to a cloud of smoke outside my door every evening for three weeks so far from about six in the evening to 11, but sometimes till past one in the morning. I cannot believe that people are actually encouraged to sit outside all evening long and smoke and smoke and smoke. The establishment is in the shape of a T. At the intersection of the T on the south side is a backup generator. The same group of people sit atop this generator and smoke all evening. I have
called the corporate office 6 times so far and have never received a message back from them about it. The generator is right below my door. I have seen the Female courtesy officer speaking to them. They did not move
an inch afterwards. Clearly they have complete approval for what they are doing.
The brochure you get upon check-in indicates you can be thrown out for loitering and smoking in the wrong places. This Certainly Seems To Qualify. Austin has a smoking ordinance. No smoking within 15 feet of the doors and windows to an establishment. No Smoking Around Children. There are certainly kids about. This should not be a third rate dump. If you do not like smoke don't come here. The Courtesy Officer Smokes and I
have seen on occasion a manager lighting up.
