Stayed 10/8/14. 3rd floor. Had just got in my room and saw something crawling on the bed near the pillow.
Grabbed a glass to catch it and sure enough it was a bed bug.
Showed the critter to a couple people on the staff who said they never see them and that they spray every three months.
They moved me to a recently renovated room on the 6th floor where I did not see any traces of bugs although I did not sleep well all night.

Stayed at the hotel night of June 25, 2012. Did not feel anything that night but the next morning noticed bites that looked like mosquito bites. By the next evening they had started to swell and by the following day I was covered with blotches. I know that it was from this hotel because it's the only place I stayed during that period and when I came home I had no further bites. Fortunately I seem to not have brought them home with me. I've notified the management of the hotel as well.

December 6, 2010, Courtyard by Marriott Washington Embassy Row, 1600 Rhode Island Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20036 (Fifth floor, room #518). I checked the beds when I checked in and only saw two small stains on the bed. So small I could not conclude if they where bed bugs. It was a cold December night on embassy row early in the month. I ordered extra blankets since the window did not properly close. Well, when I woke up the next morning I had several defined bites on my body! When I examined the b
ed covers, I noticed bugs sitting in the blankets on the bed. I reported the problem and was informed that they will clean the room. When I returned that night it looked like they just took the covers from my room and replaced it with a new one. I went to sleep itching myself all night long. I could not sleep and woke up. I searched the internet for a new hotel to move to. That morning, I immediately checked out of the hotel and into a Marriot in Rosslyn. I will never stay at that hotel location again! I am still wondering who next might be the unlucky customer to get stuck with the nasty blankets.
