Starwood Hotels and Resorts has announced its Sheraton and Four Points by Sheraton hotel brands are going smoke-free throughout the US, Caribbean and Canada.

Starwood says work converting 300 properties has begun, with around 8,000 smoking rooms undergoing extensive cleaning, including surface treatment, air filter replacement and deep cleaning of air conditioning units.

Smokers will be permitted to use designated outdoor smoking areas, Starwood says.
