Upscale NYC hotels don't clean rooms, change sheets

Some luxury Manhattan hotels don’t fully clean rooms among guests amid a coronavirus pandemic, a new report has found.

Three different Midtown hotels don’t even bother to replace pillowcases or clean surfaces that are commonly used, according to an investigation by Inside Edition began broadcasting Monday night.

Manufacturers with TV programs reserve rooms in each hotel and use a washable spray to apply the Inside Edition logo – only visible under UV light – for pillows, sheets and bath towels.

They also flush commonly touched surfaces, such as TV remotes, thermostats, and tables with washable gels.

The next day, using a new reservation with a different name, they check in to the same room to see if the linen has been changed and the surface is wiped.

At the Hyatt Place Times Square, the logo is still visible on sheets and pillowcases under UV light – indicating they have not been replaced, the report reported.

While the table has been cleaned and towels replaced, the gel is seen on the remote control when placed under UV light.

A few blocks away at the Hampton Inn Times Square Central, the sheets and pillowcases had not been changed either and the remote control or thermostat were not erased, according to the report.

At the Trump International Hotel overlooking Central Park, sheets and towels are replaced. But the pillowcase was not there and the table and remote control were not erased.

A Hyatt spokesman told the program that they were “very concerned” about the situation.

“We are working with hotel owners to ensure the hotel implements appropriate cleaning protocols that are consistent with Hyatt’s commitment to cleanliness for the safety and well-being of guests,” the statement said.

A Hampton Inn spokeswoman said she had conducted her own investigation and found that “our household team relies on visual inspections of room cleanliness to determine which areas are of concern, deviating from our protocol.”

“This is a violation of our standards for cleaning every room,” the statement said. “Both our household and management team apologize for this error and we are retraining our team members to strengthen our procedures.”

A representative for Trump International Hotel did not return program requests for comment.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
