During the pandemic, everyone’s pretty paranoid about catching something and you know what? Rightly so. No-one wants the covids and you’d think hotels would try their utmost to abate the fears. Nah, no chance. They’re not changing the sheets.
It’s the bare minimum, you would have thought. Changing sheets, while annoying, is pretty easy and if for some reason I had someone coming over to sleep in my bed, you could put money on me changing the sheets.
To test how well certain hotels kept their rooms clean, Inside Edition decided to visit three in New York and spray their bedsheets with invisible-yet-harmless paint that shows up under a UV light.
They then checked out of the rooms and later rebooked the same rooms, bringing with them their cameras and UV lights.
Have a watch…
That’s right. Basically no hotel actually does any cleaning apparently.
Before we start, it’s good to see that the set piece from The Dark Knight is still in use, behind whoever’s presenting this show.
I like that the Trump Hotel stayed very true to brand and point blank denied any accusations thrown at them. You’ve got to respect them for sticking to their morals there, don’t you? They know their audience.
Meanwhile, I’m a huge fan of how the second hotel worker said “oh let me go get the manager” and then he literally never came back. Such a temporary fix but he stuck to his guns. That is very admirable. They should make him the manager.
Actually for all we know, he could have been the manager. He was certainly dressed like a manager (ill fitting suit and all that) and he was using his training to get out of there as quick as possible.
Probably leave it a while before you go to any hotels…
