im from the UK and ive never heard of a smokestack. I got that its probably a chimney, but why on earth would a hotel have a chimney? Only chimneys ive seen are for coal fires and you would be lucky to fit yr head in one, never mind your whole body also surely in 2012 a hotel doesnt have a coal fire

I would call it a chimney too. Too me a smoke stack is a pipe. There are older buildings that still have chimneys even though they may not be used anymore. Some places it is a problem because kids climb up on roofs and end up falling into them. Here in the U.S. we mostly use wood in the fireplace. I don't even know if anyone ever uses coal.
