Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi has banned smoking in its 1,740 hotel rooms.
The move is based on feedback from hotel guests, spokeswoman Mary Cracchiolo-Spain told The Sun-Herald.
Smoking is still allowed in the resort’s 95 suites. It also is allowed on most of the gaming floor, and in the gourmet restaurants. Smoking has been banned in the buffet and café as well as in the spa and salon.
According to the newspaper, groups who advocate non-smoking have repeatedly asked the Biloxi Council to ban smoking in restaurants and casinos. The council each time voted against a law and allowed business owners to create their own policy.
