Savagely Bitten on 06/07/2014
I was a male guest a the St. Louis Arch Hyatt in room 1685 on June 6, 2014. I was only in the bed from 10:30p-3:45a. I woke up to shower and get ready for work.. I immediately started itching around my ankles as I walked towards the shower. I looked in the mirror and saw a bite by my neck, then noticed another on my arm. I had been viciously attacked in a short time by bed bugs!! These be bugs are very aggressive! ! I call guest services and they said they will have a third party investigation
and get back to me.. RUN from this hotel!
Bitten at the Hyatt on 01/10/2014
We stayed in this hotel on Dec. 4th. I woke up with some bed bug bites on my neck, which I discovered as I drove away. The staff was lovely at the hotel. Very helpful. Our room was gorgeous. I decided not to report the bed bugs on this site and tell the hotel directly so they could address it directly. I did so and told them that I had not planned on report it to this site. This is how they responded. They told me if it was determined there were insects, they would let me know. They never u
sed the word bed bug. I explained that it was not in question. I had been bitten. I explained that I believe the bed bugs were not in the bed, but on the orange round pillow I had used to work for several hours. The hotel called a professional bed bug service. The service declared the room clean and called me to report it. I am posting here because the denial started from the second I made the call to report it. I do not know if the pillows on the bed were checked by this professional service. The initial call I made showed me that they weren't interested in locating the bed bugs. When I explained where the bed bugs were, I was not convinced they cared to locate the problem. I think it's sad that they showed not concern for infestation. They need to stay in the room themselves.

I am a fly attendant and had a layover at this hotel the 16th of Nov. I awoke and found I had at least 50 bites on my neck back stomach and chest. I had an allergic reaction to the bites and the next day they had blisters or postures at the bite point. Yes this does happen . I told the manager and he said the hotel has never had bedbugs. Said he would follow up with me after the outside company checked it out.....guess what? They called and said no bedbugs....hum. Wish I could post pics as well
....it may make some squeamish . I had to eat a Benadryl every four hours to keep the itching under control. My face was swollen and it was a tad uncomfortable as a working fligh attendant out in the aisle. My guess? Hotel changes mattress and does a quick clean of the room....then calls ECOLAB....this is the company they use. I had not stayed in any hotels prior to this incident for 12 days so I did not bring them in. I do not seek damages from the hotel.....just accept responsibility and fix it correctly......how dare you lie to your guests...
4th of July Guests on 07/10/2013
Four of us stayed at the Hyatt July 3-7, 2013. Housekeeping changed our sheets on Friday the 5th, which was the same day one of our four guests went home. When the remaining three of us got home we became very itchy and our feet and legs were covered in bed bug bites. The fourth person did not have any bites leaving us to the conclusion that bed bugs were brought into the room with the new sheets on the 5th. I called the hotel and a manager stated he would report to housekeeping and return my ca
ll the next day. The manager had the audacity to say we got the bug bites from the Festival at the Arch. We did not even attend the Festival! It has been three days and no return call has been made. I plan to follow-up with corporate. There should be an option to share photos on this website.
DISGUSTED on 03/23/2013
I recently stayed at the Hyatt St. Louis Arch from March 18 -21st and was attcked by bed bugs. My arms are covered with disgusting bumps. I can't stand too look at myself and it has ruined my weekend plans. I thought it was weird that I was the only person living on my hall and that all the rooms on the hall were getting new beds. If they knew they had an issue on this hall they should have assigned me to a different room. These bites are so embarrasing. I wish there were a way to upload pi
ctures and video of my arms. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!

I took seemed to have brought back bed bugs after staying at this hotel for 2 nights in 4/2012. I did not see any while there but the day after I got home we started noticing bed bug bites. I had to fumigate everything, move, and have an inspection.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Sept, 2011, I woke up the next morning with bites on my neck. I immediantly contact the hotel to let them know which room I was in, and of the occurance. They responded through housekeeping stating that there were no bedbugs. $1500 later, I can ensure them that there were begbugs in fact the room must have been infested because they somehow came home with me and I only stayed one night. I called and reported the situation again to the Hyatt, St Louis at the Ar
ch, and never heard back. I work for a multi million dollar company in Chicago, who has had the Hyatt on their preferred travel list, I have reported this to corporate who has now removed this hotel from our preferred list. The Hyatt needs to address this issue, and not ignore their customers when Bedbugs are clearly a problem.

i had gone to the hyatt for a conference and woke up with bites! during the night, i felt as if i had the "creepy crawlies." coudn't sleep. about 2:00am i finally decided it wasn't me. i flipped on the light and saw blood on my sheets. so, i threw back the sheets and ...HELLO! there they were.....
i called the front desk and by the time security got there they removed 1 lonely bug and flushed it down the toilet. i was promptly moved to another room, different floor.... securi
ty was very pleasant. they even turned down my sheets. however, as i told them "do you Really think i'm getting in another bed of your's?!?"
the whole building was very sweet. they did try. but this is a serious matter that their root beer and popcorn could not ever fix.
i was told later that "the inspection lab didn't find any bugs which had feed. there was one dead bug. but no bed bugs".... i have Several pictures which beg to differ. please God... don't let them appear at my home.....in my bed.....!!!
