    I'm sorry, there are no smoking rooms. We have designated smoking areas on property, but rooms and balconies are smoke free to ensure the cleanest and freshest environment for all guests.

    Yes, as long as you have a license. You can't really get down to the water from there but there are places along the River Walk where you can get down to the river. There is a guard rail along the river bank at the hotel.
