(People's Daily Online) Beijing’s tourism administration questioned five five-star hotels caught in sanitation scandal on the morning of Sept. 5. Popular hotel brands including Hilton, InterContinental, JW Marriott, and Shangri-La are involved in the scandal, according to the administration’s official Weibo account.
The five hotels, which reportedly operated without changing bed sheets and disinfecting toilet bowls, have been ordered to carry out inspections and take measures to improve management and service quality.
Regular inspections of hotels will be strengthened to tackle such problems and to guarantee service quality, said Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development.
The hotels caught in the scandal said they have started inspections and promised to further standardize processes and keep a closer eye on guestroom cleaning, the Commission said.

Most of the 5 star hotels charge exorbitantly, but are their sanitory conditions up to standard? .What are some other things that are disturbing/interesting/unsanitary about hotel rooms? I might carry my own bed sheets for the next trips.

I think the Beijing officials have taken just another cheap and nationalist shot at foreign-owned luxury hotels to divert custom to the underperforming Chinese ones.

I have been to many five-star hotels in China and know that bed sheets do not get changed every day if the guest stays for several days. There is nothing wrong with a guest sleeping in the same bed sheets as the night before.

Do you know that in Chinese-run hotels the same bed sheets might be left there when a new guest is renting the same room? Do these officials check that?

The hotels accused here in fact advertise publicly that they hope their valuable guests understand that the bed sheets serve the same guest perhaps two or three nights. Why should that be unhygienic???

The other complaint is ridiculous too.
