IMPORTANT please note, the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel is a SMOKE FREE one. Any guest who smokes in their room will receive a $200 cleaning fee on their account. Please make sure you don't get one of these!

Can you smoke outside the building?
As far as I am aware, Vancouver is a smoke free city. That said, if it's anything like the UK there are
probably smoking areas but you would need to ask the hotel where those are.

I don't think conga falls under the category of "dance". They're like macarena or YMCA...

If it's a Homecoming, there's gotta be proper music and dance u.u *Daydreams about firts homecoming ever 'cos sadly we don't have that kind of stuff in Italy, we just watch it in the movies and daydream a lot about it*

If the ballroom is equipped with wifi technology, will we be allowed to live tweet?

Hi... Fee wifi is available only in certain areas such as bedrooms and I think the coffee shop, main foyer etc but not in the ballrooms as such
