After sexual assault reports, TripAdvisor adds 'safety' filters for hotel bookings

Originally published at:


Not that it’s unbelievable but it does blow me away that staff at a hotel would assault a guest, and that TripAdvisor would then have to add a filter that gets rid of places with such histories. Why not just de-list the place altogether until the business had made tangible positive changes? I would not want to patronize any place like that.


Or maybe a 0 star rating with a giant red warning “WARNING: GUESTS HAVE REPORTED ASSAULTS BY HOTEL STAFF” and no ability to make reservations etc… until the issue has been resolved.

Leave it up, so people get the warning, but disallow actually booking anything.
