In a recent nationwide reassessment of star-grade hotel ratings 138 hotels in Yunnan Province were punished by the China National Tourism Administration, with 27 hotels being revoked of star-grade qualifications, according to a China Hospitality News report citing Chinese media.
There were more hotels punished by the national tourism body in Yunnan than in any other province in China. Yunnan is one of China's most popular domestic and international tourist destinations, but the development of its hospitality sector seems to be lagging behind the growth in visitors to the province, with inflated star ratings common.
Aside from the hotels that were stripped of their stars, 14 Yunnan hotels were downgraded, 50 were ordered to rectify before a given deadline and 47 received suspended assessments.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
