In one of these hopefully rare events, I’ve found myself needing to daven Shemoneh Esrei in a hotel lobby. I tried finding a quiet place, only to realise mid-way one of the workers telling me I was not supposed to be there.
I had to move my location some distance away from my initial location, and then continue with Shemoneh Esrei. In such a situation, would my tefillah be acceptable? Or, should I have to restart from the beginning after I changed positions?
This was Maariv ... would it make any different if this was Mincha (or even Shacharit)?
Furthermore, what are the acceptable and non-acceptable reasons to permit change of location during Shemoneh Esrei?
