Here is what Hotel whisperer Bjorn Hanson, 61, the dean of the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management at NYU, is saying about bed bugs in NYC:

“What is the status of bed bug infestation in NYC hotels?

It’s under control. Every hotel I know has frequent inspections, which these days means bringing in dogs to detect bed bugs. The public relations risk of any sort of allegation makes inspections more important than many other issues. But
sadly, the challenge is that a hotel can do an inspection and make sure every room is uninfested and then one guest arrives who puts a suitcase on a bed and  two weeks later you have bed bugs contaminating a hotel.”
