The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article today about the trend of hotels fining guests up to $250 for being caught smoking in a non-smoking room. As long as the policy is clearly spelled out for people, that seems reasonable. But if the Swissotel Chicago really is giving housekeepers "a $10 bonus for every smoker they catch" (in the WSJ's words), I'm creeped out. Does anyone really want housekeeping to be incentivized to sift through guests' trash?
