Let me take a stab at answering this. First of all, while it may not
be obvious, you DO NOT need to be a Priority Club member in order to
reserve a room. AMS is trying to get the link fixed so that this will
be clearer. For now, you can just enter the desired arrival and
departure dates. For some reason, if you already ARE a Priority Club
member the page does not seem to load properly, anyway... that's being
worked on hopefully :-)
The ANA does indeed have a limited number of non-smoking rooms, but I
know the hotel is well aware that most IETFrs will want non-smoking
rooms and they will do their best to accommodate you (even if the
reservation system may not indicate availability).
Also, I stayed in an official *smoking* room at this hotel back in
November and they had "air cleaned" it prior to my arrival. I had no
issues, the room seemed as "clean" airwise as any non-smoking room
I've stayed in anywhere in the world.

on Friday (nothing odd there). I was, though, VERY surprised that there are
no non-smoking rooms available. All I got was:
1 SINGLE BED STANDARD SMOKING at ￥13,500.
If I want non-smoking, I seem to have to pay 23,000 and have 2 beds.
Is this other's experience as well? While I can survive a smoking room, I'd
really rather not. I haven't tried calling, so perhaps that's the solution.
Can anything be done to get us some non-smoking rooms since I suspect that's
what almost everyone wants?
