New York City's Hotel Carter Named 'Dirtiest Hotel in the USA'


No, I didn't read it in a magazine but, rather, in today's USA Today travel section item by Kitty Bean Yancey; her piece follows.

    A dirty list, but some hotel has to top it

    The winner of a dubious honor โ€” the dirtiest hotel in the U.S.A. โ€” is the Hotel Carter in Manhattan, according to TripAdvisor's just-released annual list.

    The 700-room hotel on West 43rd Street in the Times Square area tops TripAdvisor's filthy list for the third year, based on member reviews.

    It gets hair-raising ratings from travelers on TripAdvisor.com, with tales of bedbugs, yucky bathrooms and lurking ladies of the night. In August, a housekeeper found a woman's body under a bed, the New York Post reported. Calls to the hotel for comment were not answered. Go to TripAdvisor.com/dirtyhotels for the full list of lodgings where cleanliness has been an issue.


Ms. Yancey's blog has more.

Here are TripAdvisor's 2008 Top 10 Dirtiest Hotels, "chosen by our members as beyond scummy... prepare to be utterly disgusted."

A room costing $134.00 @ night should be cleaned and have a clean bathroom plus clean drinkable water and be held to the same high standards as any other place that deals with the general Public ... there ought not be places that are filthy ..it is one way that harmful germs are spread around from one location to the next.....it is not good for our environment...I feel that any place that deals with the Public needs to be held Accountable as any other place does... so there needs to be something done about the FILTHINESS!!!!!!!!!!

The head remains outstanding.
