Same name for hotel and activities page

Hi,

is it possible to have a name for a hotel and activities on the same name ?

Yes, two separate businesses may have the same name, regardless of the category.

The Ahwahnee Hotel (in Yosemite National Park)

Hotel page: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g61000-d119543-…

Tourism (visit a historic'architectual building activity) page: tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g61000-d53…

======

I think it's incredibly confusing. Folks post reviews for a stay in the hotel on the 'building' page and then their review does not 'count' toward the overall ranking, nor do other potential hotel guests see that review.

that's very true, I have the same issue for a friend hotel, he have a hotel and activities have the same name, in main time he want to have only the hotel name to be online, because he don't want to put his activities for confusing the reviews and ranking as well he cant give it another name, dose he have the rights to ask TripAdvisor to delete the activities page .

I think it makes more sense for him to ask that the two things be renamed a bit differently. Maybe add the word "hotel" to one.

Using the two I linked, perhaps TA could call one "The Ahwahnee Hotel" and the other "Historic Ahwahnee Building." That might help members to figure out which one they want to review.

Your friend as owner can access the Owner's Forum and ask what other business owners have done to avoid confusion.

And no, your friend cannot ask to have a business removed from TripAdvisor database.

An example of three listing for the same place is Chewton Glen in England

Spa tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g503837-…

Restaurant tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g503837-…

The variation in names helps reduce but does totally eliminate it
