    I don’t think you can ask them not to nap as a means of trying to control THEIR sleep schedule. That said, you are absolutely within your rights to set certain expectations on sleep hours (ex: lights out after 11 or midnight, go to the lobby if you want to watch funny Vines). I also don’t think you can put a restriction on them coughing; that’s just their body!

    If that doesn’t work: earbuds and eyemask. They make very comfy ones.

    onepeople101 :  Tell her she can’t vape in the room that you (or your work) paid for, if she wants to stay up all night vaping and watching shows then she can pay for her own room.

    If she’s coughing, you can’t do much about that. And the idea of asking her to take a nap at 7 PM is really strange, don’t do that.

    I’d straight up tell my sibling they can pay for their own room if they want to vape.

    And yes, go to the lobby if you’re going to be rude all night.

    Napping I wouldn’t touch.

    Are you in a smoking room? Because most hotels don’t allow vaping in the rooms. They consider it the same as smoking. 

    I think you are 100% within your rights to say #1 they can’t vape in the room; and #2 if they want to stay up they should go to the lobby. This is a trip for work afterall. You need some sleep. 

    You can’t ask them not to take a nap though. That’s going too far.

    My own husband goes to the lobby when we’re sharing a hotel and he wants to stay up late while I go to sleep. I then do the same thing in the morning when I wake up before him. This is just basic courtesy? 

    I would not be sharing a room with my sibling if they behaved this way though.

    I would definitely ask them to go elswhere while you’re trying to sleep. Even Fiance goes out to the balcony to watch videos when I go to bed before him on holiday.

    No vaping in the room unless the hotel allows it. I wouldnt ask them not to nap, though.

    I’m with PPs unless you 1- asked the sibling to come with you and 2- you were fully aware of their vaping/ sleeping habits when you asked your sibling to join you.

    Earbuds or ask them to hang out in the lobby. Or fork over some money for the room

    No vaping and no disturbing you after lights out at 10. He can handle his own sleep schedule to fit these perameters.

    onepeople101 :  My husband vapes so I’m curious to know what sort of vape he uses that is illegal in some states? Or do you mean he vapes a certain type of juice that is illegal in some states? Because that’s definitely a thing but they’d have no way to tell that going through airport security. Vape equipment is thoroughly checked at the airport because of all the batteries and whatnot, but it most certainly is allowed to be transported as long as you follow all the proper rules and regulations about how to pack them. 

    Sorry for the tangent!
