A couple of weeks ago, Ben Bethel, the owner of the Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix let us know that he would be selling e-cigarettes to his smoking guests. He told us:
We're tired of charging guests $250 for smoking charges, tired of deep-cleaning guest rooms after they're smoked in, and tired of chasing after guests who are smoking in our pool area and rooftop bar.
So, we're going to start encouraging guests to use E-Cigarettes, to the point that I'm even going to sell them at the front desk.
Not long after our story went up, Bethel had partnered up with blucigs to sell guests their brand of e-cigarettes for $10 each. Now we can report that the hotel is selling blucig's disposables product line with flavor options of Menthol and Classic Tobacco.
Not a smoker but still curious as to how these disposable electronic ciggies work? The cigarette contains a battery, atomizer and cartridge which allows over 400 puffs, or approximately one and a half packs of cigarettes in each disposable. All you need to do is pull on the activation tab and voila, you're puffing away.
Except instead of an orange hue at the end of your cig when you puff, there's simply a "blu" LED light. And for your fellow hotel guests, there's no secondhand smoke. Sounds like a win-win to us.
What do you think? Should more hotels be adopting e-cigarettes for their smoking guests? Sound off in comments below!
