    Do you vape in your hotel room when on holiday in a place where vaping is fine?

    Tl;dr do you vape in your hotel room? ;)

    I've vaped in dozens of "non-smoking" hotel rooms over the past three and a half years. Never had a problem except once when the fire alarm went off. Manager showed up at my door within 30 seconds. Came in, looked around, asked what the smell was, had I been burning candles or anything and left. After that incident, and only while vaping, I would cover the smoke alarms with a plastic bag or one of the shower caps they leave in the bathroom.

    Samething happened 5 years ago. After that I have turned the air conditioning down really cold, and blown my vapor towards the floor.

    In one hotel, they stated smoke free hotel, then had signs including ecigarettes. In that one I vaped in the bathroom with the vent on, like a teen ager smoking.

    I have. I've heard from several people who set off fire alarms but I never have - perhaps because I'm a tootle puffer. I also usually use unflavoured, but since a lot of flavours could be mistaken for toiletries I don't suppose it's all that important.

    I do it all the time and I have never set off the fire alarm. Just lucky? Maybe but I don't blow huge clouds and fill the room with vapor

    In most states, covering or otherwise tampering with a smoke detector in your hotel room is considered a criminal offense. And as most hotels that ban vaping consider it the same thing as smoking, getting caught could very well lead to some hefty charges and/or fines.

    If the hotel allows vaping, fine. If it doesn't and you insist on vaping anyway, it's all on you if you're caught.

    Yes I vape in hotel rooms....absolutely. I also don't use stinky juice. Furthermore, I'm using very old ecig "technology" so huge plumes are also not an issue...that coupled with 70pg 30vg and I'm all good.

    I ask when I check in, if they say no vaping, then it isn't a big deal to step outside for a vape. Some simply don't know what vape smells like and, by asking, they sometimes ask me to demo it for them. Once I do it's fine.

    As for smoke alarms, I've set them of with a humidifier because my roommate for that trip needed high humidity to sleep properly - that set off the smoke alarm. So will using the shower to steam up the room in some hotels.

    Best policy is, that if it is posted then, go outside, if the laws of the location consider vaping the same as smoking, get a smoking room or go outside. If there is nothing posted and, the law does not forbid it, ask.

    Ah. The ceilings were too high and I would have had to set up a rickety stepping system atop the bed.

    I just used the balcony :(

    This time...

    Looks like it's already been mentioned but be weary of fire alarms. For me, it would very much depend on the type of hotel as to whether I asked, vaped, or just stepped outside. I normally stay in some pretty questionable hotels, lol

    I have only been in one hotel since I started vaping and I vaped outside like a smoker, as I would most any non-smoking indoor place these days. I recently set off the downstairs smoke detector in our house by blowing a few clouds down there after 2 years vaping (and my office being right next to it).

    Honestly? I've only stayed in a hotel room one time since I've been vaping.. (No, I don't travel much.. lol) but no, I didn't vape there. I do follow rules, its respectful (imho)

    (I know, I know.. this makes me a geeky homebody or something... but it's only right in my opinion, I'm paying for the privilege of staying in someone else's place, so I follow their rules, whatever they are. It's not my home, it's someone else's.)

    Well I commend you for that. But I say screw the hotels for charging an additional "resort fee" to make us pay for things they have always given for free. I vape with the AC on full blast, away from any smoke detectors.

    Hahaha.. no.. I wouldn't be getting hotel rooms even if I was a non vaper/non smoker. I've seen the world, now I'm home.

    And coincidence? Probably not, unless he went to the same funeral in West Virginia that I did!
