Itchy at the Hilton on 06/24/2014
I stayed at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago from June 10-13. I woke up the 2nd morning I was there with terrible fresh bites on my feet. The bites were in rows - consistent with how bed bugs bite, I soon learned. I searched the bed and found tiny bugs that looked like very small black seeds. The bites were extremely painful and itchy. They woke me up throughout the night they itched so badly, and hydrocortisone provided no relief. The hotel moved me to another room, but needless to say,
it was a miserable stay. If I could have left, I would have, but my work obligation prevented me from doing so - I had to stay another night, and it was miserable and sleepless.
