With over a decade of experience inspecting hotels, our newest Mystery Guest Program is designed to identify travel risks for guests. The performance of each individual COVID security program and its integration into the existing hotel product is also examined.

Most importantly, we want to gain a better understanding of how compatible global Safety Programs comply with government regulations and whether there are any inconsistencies or similarities.” said Stefan Vito Hiller, Lead Hotel Inspector, Sky Touch Global

As part of hotels new marketing, chains have published their COVID safety guidelines online to let guests know what steps they have taken. We strive to rate hotels and find out what individual hotel groups do better than their competition.

Can hotel chains keep their promises and how are the individual commitments delivered to the market? We also want to find out what impact COVID safety measures have on customer service and if the safety for guests is compromised in any way.

To paint a realistic picture of the current situation in hotels, the Sky Touch Inspectors checked in at all hotels from August 22nd to August 30th, 2020:
