Hyatt Place Times Square not cleaning between guests during Covid?

This was a bit surprising given their clean commitment.

A rep for the Trump International Hotel denied Inside Edition’s findings.
True to their namesake, denying the facts.

I hope all these findings go straight to the Department of Health.

Not surprising at all. Anyone who seriously thinks properties are going to change anything is kidding themselves. Even before this hysteria, people already did gross things in hotels, brought sicknesses into them, etc and housekeepers should have been cleaning and changing items. However, everyone has always known they largely do not, at least not to the degree they should. This is a result of being understaffed, overworked, underpaid and general human laziness. Suddenly now because we have airborne ebola apparently, people are dumb enough to think they are going to steam blast and hand sanitize every corner of the room every night? Please. This is frankly exactly what I expected before, today and tomorrow.

Look, at least they changed the sheets and towels. That is more than the other hotels did... perplexed they did not change the pillow case.. where did that go while they changed the sheets, on the floor? Wow... anyway, not saying it is right, but the fact is, the Trump Hotel performed better than the other two... they all still failed.

These findings should not surprise anyone. Travel at your own risk. Inspect your room. Nothing different than before. Given surface contamination is not as much of a concern for Coronavirus as initially thought, it is still a risk for other viruses/sicknesses as it always has been.

Getting to the point where hotels can't even get staff to make beds/change sheets properly. Maybe they should just distribute sheets to guests at check in, in sealed plastic bags, and guests make their own bed.

I am a little curious how the news story was able to check in the next day and get the exact same room. Aren't there rules that rooms are supposed to be vacant for a certain number of days between guests and vacant for a certain number of hours/days before housekeeping even enters the room? Or do those not apply in NY?

A failure is still a failure and a threat to public health. At least the other hotels acknowledged the failure and promised to work toward a solution.

I would think they would be on top of it given their clean commitment but thatís shocking!

Stayed recently for $75 and it was fine. I am sure Hyatt Corp is on top of this given this negative publicity. So Is probably a good time to stay there.
Note the surrounding area is a bit sketchy. As there is no breakfast, there are places around to grab a quick bite. I would skip bagel/cream cheese from the deli down the street - it was hard as a rock.
