Despite the fact that an estimated 42.1 million American adults still smoke, it's hard to find a good hotel these days that'll let you light up in your room (hope you're happy, C. Everett Coop). But that's all about to change, thanks to Smoketels: a just-launched reservation service that helps you book cig-friendly accommodation at over 100,000 properties around the world. Not only that, but they don't charge a booking fee for any of their 250,000 rooms (or a cancelation fee, for that matter).
The site rears its smoky head at a pertinent time too; indeed, with recreational pot restrictions dropping across the country, Smoketels might just capitalize on a whole other set of smokers. We foresee a hazy, if not bright, future ahead.
