I stayed on the tenth floor the night of May 17th, 2012. I saw three small bugs on one of the two double beds but the front desk had already made me change rooms, as the first one they gave me had unmade beds and a room service tray full of half eaten food.

I was extremely anxious (and still am) because the neighbors in my five-unit, self managed condo will make me pay for the entire building to be treated if they find out I have bed bugs and the exterminator said it costs thousands of dollars to get rid of bed bugs because you have to take apart the furniture and really turn the place upside down. In the past I was blamed for a flea infestation, just because I was the one who did something about my problem even though my neighbors had noticed them first. I panicked at the thought of both treating a bedbug infestation and being accused of negligence for not letting anyone know about the possibility. The hotel is sending a service to my place tomorrow but if their presence alerts my neighbors to a problem, I will have to try to find a way to recover something because I cannot afford to deal with a bed bug infestation. My one night stay became a nightmare! The hotel has so far been very cooperative but the misery of having these bites all over me and not being able to go to work or teach has taken its toll on me already.

Had bed bug bites on my arm and legs. Didn't realize what it was until I had left the hotel. Hotel management was very forthcoming, treated the room as well as reimbursed me for part of the stay.
