The Beijing Tourism Association met with five luxury hotels after being accused of not changing bed sheets and cleaning toilets between guests.
The five hotels are JM Marriott, Shangri La Hotel, Hilton, Intercontinental, and W Beijing. The association said on Sina Weibo Tuesday that it takes this issue very seriously.
A video showed employees from Better Choice, Better Life, an independent assessment organization, checking into five different luxury Beijing hotels posing as guests. They found out the hotels failed to change and clean beddings and toiletries before the arrival of new guests.
The organization posted the video on Sina Weibo on Monday.
Using "invisible" paint which can only be detected by UV light, the organization's employees sprayed several stamps on sheets, toilets and toiletries.
When they returned to the same room, the stamps were still there.
The video shows that these employees even found a used condom under a bed in JM Marriott.
"I used to spent more money to stay at these luxury hotels because I thought they're cleaner than cheaper hotels. Now, I am torn between the hotels," a Shanghai-based journalist surnamed Wu, told the Global Times.
