Don't use Airbnb.No really, don't use Airbnb.
Hotels are regulated in ways that protect *you*, the person who stays in them. Airbnb's profits come from arbitrage: it skips the cost of adhering to the regulations.
@ceejbot To the extent that the regulations are genuinely intended to protect people, this is true. But regulatory capture means that a large fraction of regulation is written by the hotels themselves in order to minimize competition.
