    I'll have to be left in suspense!

    I live in the future over here ;) and I'm trying to go to sleep a little earlier than normal. It's 1am now so I'm going to hit the hay.

    I'll be sure to come back soon and get this interesting story,
    I hope your not kidding...

    Yes I am vaping in a hotel room. Even when it is a non smoker room. Vaping we all know is not the same as smoking. I think when I burn a incense there will be a lot of more smoke and smell, then when I use my tiny Penguin:). Imo don't see the harm when I am vaping in a hotel room.

    My friends and I usually do. Open a window if we can, or vape into the vent in the bathroom. At most we've had housekeeping tell us our cologne/perfume smelled great. ;)

    Honestly, BEFORE I set off my OWN smoke alarm, I'd probably have considered vaping in a hotel room that was non-smoking, but one tiny tootle puff directed in the right place as I was adjusting the thermostat was enough to set of THAT smoke alarm (I was really glad the husband was awake and gone for the day, LOL).

    If I want to vape in a hotel room, I'd probably ask for a smoking room since I genuinely don't mind the smell of even stale "cleaned" smoke, that or vape outside. I wouldn't want to fiddle with any sort of smoke alarm system to conceal it. Just because I'm a vaper doesn't mean I don't have other things that could catch fire, so it doesn't strike me as a stellar plan. Although quite honestly if I'm traveling by car, I'd rather camp anyway, (even if it's a campground spot, and my car) I tend to find them more peaceful than hotels.... No one in my family agrees with this philosophy if I travel alone but quite honestly, the hotels I tend to afford are probably just as risky anyway.... :)

    I once stayed in a hotel CASINO and smoking was only allowed on the casino floor... It was an easy trip downstairs, even when I was in the middle of dying my hair, once. I.Did.Not.Care because I was like, "Yeah, you'll let the gamblers do it but not ME?"

    Ive done it at every hotel Ive stayed at since I quit smoking heh. So far, knock on wood, I haven't set off a smoke alarm yet. I think as long as you're not blowing it towards the alarm, or blowing some ridiculous room-filling clouds you'll be ok. The vapor that we exhale isn't like smoke, which will float around and set off the alarm, unless you're head is pointed straight up, it comes straight out, and sinks downward while it dissipates. Thats how I used to get away with vaping at work where we had surveillance cameras in every office. Just point your head downwards, and that stuff will never float into view.

    Yeah but smoke alarms are different. One works by the flow of ions being disrupted (I think) and one works by having a light beam to a sensor. If anything breaks that then the alarm is set.

    Also, I’ve had a bad experience when I started vaping, the alarm in my house was on its way out so when you opened the door of the bathroom the steam would set off the alarm!
    Even my vaping from downstairs used to set the thing off upstairs regularly!

    My sister is a GM at a hotel with a no smoking policy. She said guests rarely ask. If they do they are told that vaping or e-cigarettes are fine to use in the rooms, but to crack a window. But she has seen hardware in rooms while doing spot inspections. Never a problem. But if they find ashes or stuff like that it’s an extra $175.00 on your room charge.

    I spent 3 nights in a Hilton, no smoking and vaped in my room in the morning and at night. I asked her if I should inquire and she said, “If you don’t see a sign, don’t ask.”

    Why wouldn't vaping be allowed in hotel rooms? I've never noticed it leaving behind any permanent odor like combustible cigs. Just saying. I don't ask anyway. No one can say no if you don't ask. And as for finding vape stuff in the room...Who can prove vaping was perpetrated in the room? Just like you can have cigarettes etc., and not smoke them inside. One can have vape stuff and not have vaped inside.

    Heck. I've been known to vape anywhere I'm at. Only the size of the cloud differs! And I do mean ANYWHERE: hospitals, offices, govt. bldgs. You name it.

    This may be a dumb question but does vaping actually set off smoke alarms? I've never had that happen. And I vape any and everywhere. The only place I've not vaped was on an airplane. At least, I don't think I did. But only because the idea didn't pop into my head at the time. Just an old renegade, I guess.:evil:

    Vaping can set off smoke alarms, yes. I have done it in my own house (granted, only with ONE tiny tootlepuff going directly up to the alarm which is directly above my thermostat, which I was adjusting at the time.

    I've gotten fairly cloudy and not have it happen other times, I think it's more proximity and sensitivity. I will say I was fairly surprised because we bought the house on an FHA loan and they made the sellers put in something like 17 smoke alarms. Of course, with the house fire, the only one that went off was the one original to the house. We discovered later they used pretty sketchy batteries, they shouldn't all have died within the time period they did (and no "beep" to change, either.) They may have been Mexican smoke alarms, or just the absolute cheapest thing available or whatever.

    In my youth, I was far less cautious about things, but you know, I'm getting more elderly. It strikes me as just as easy to either get a smoking room or vape where it is permitted. I HAVE vaped in government buildings (court house bathrooms specifically) but I refuse to feel bad because those were times of extreme stress, heh. With that said I was rather cautious. I had a much harder time with my dry mouth lozenge stash (food they said it was.... food) than getting my vape equipment past security, however.
