Menorah lighting in Hotels
« on: October 24, 2012, 11:16:17 PM »
Has anyone had any experience with this? I'll be out of town for part of chanukah and staying at a hotel. Has anyone had any experience with a lit menorah in their hotel room? That is, were there any problems with the smoke detector going off, or the fact that it was a non-smoking hotel.

Thanks

Interesting opinion I remember reading in a sefer with regards to menorah on a plane. His shita was that the most mehudar way to light on a plane was to use an electric menorah, without saying a brocho.

IMO it's different, whereas in a plane it's probably a Sakkanah, I'm sure that with proper peoples skills you should be able to get approved to do it in a hotel.

Was on vacation once at a hotel over chanukah, there were no problems bh for menorah. We did put it out a little less than an hour later, so it shouldn't start smoking etc.

Varies greatly by hotel. I have done it in hotel rooms, on balconies...however once when I was afraid the smoke alarm might go off (it was a smoke free hotel) I asked, and wasn't allowed to light anywhere on the hotel property- not even outside!

I did this year like pic attached and had no issues.

It's not the first time, and never had an issue.

I always watch it until fire is out.
Always praying for delayed baggage.
