We dont smoke, but I doubt it since they have a designated smoking area.
Unless they've changed back, you can't smoke on balconies.
It's been awhile, but when we were there last, we saw people going out off the parking lot blacktop to smoke.
I believe they even warned about a large monetary charge if they caught you smoking on property.
I recommend you call the hotel directly and ask.
Not sure if interested smoke, but that's just me...
