As such, to protect and enhance our indoor air quality and to contribute to the health and well-being of our guests and employees, Nauvoo Temple House is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is prohibited in all the enclosed areas within the facility without exception. This includes guest rooms, common areas, conference and meeting rooms, private offices, hallways, elevators, stairs, restrooms, outside entrance and lobby areas and all other enclosed facilities.
If a smoking violation occurs in a room, the client will be charged a $250 non-refundable cleaning fee. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that our guests and employees are not subject to second hand smoke.
