Please insure accurate information on Hotels

This page, sponsored, copywritted and apparently written by Trip Advisor, contains the names of several hotels which do not in fact permit smoking.

Either it's an invalid link or that article has been removed?

The link show sup for me, but the forum is likely not the best place for this. Try contacting Trip Advisor help directly with this concern, especially if one of your own listings is here.

The filter is actually for non-smoking rooms, but the title at the top of the filtered results shows Hotels with Smoking Rooms. That's what I see at least. Very strange.

How strange that we all seem to get something different!

Rob's link works fine for me, and the filter is set for "Hotels with Smoking Rooms", exactly as the title at the top.

Rob, as you well know, corrections are not a piece of cake on TripAdvisor.

Um, that was my bad. I clicked on Amenities and thought I was choosing Smoking, but there's no Smoking, only Non-Smoking Rooms. When I went back to the link, that filter was still on.

How did you get a filter for Smoking Rooms, Rob? Am I missing it and it's there?

Silvia. When you click on the link rob provided, on the left side, right under the map, it says "Your Selections". Right underneath that, in green ink, it says "Hotels with Smoking Rooms". You can "x" it out, if you wish. But the filter seems to be set for smoking rooms in hotels.

So very, very strange that not everyone can see this page. Hmmm ! Looks like they don't want people from Australia, Canada or the UK coming to smoke in New York.

Yes, yes, indeed. I saw that and clicked on Filters to see if there was a Smoking category, as I was surprised such cat existed. When I thought I found it, I clicked on it, but instead it was Non Smoking. I went back and checked again, and couldn't find Smoking.

Are there smoking hotels in NYC? I thought that most states had long ago forbidden smoking in a place of work.

There are the odd hotels here and there.

The law provides for hotels to allow smokers within the room - as it's not in a public area. Exact same laws in Australia.
