I spent 2 nights at Mela and got back home last night with a rash on one arm. Can't find the bite, but an itching red rash covers my whole right arm (allergic reaction). I have never had such a reaction in over 15 years therefore am confident it might be bedbugs. I was happy to see there were no reports when we booked the hotel, yet now I am devastated thinking I may have brought back the bugs home... I yet have to wash my clothes and clean my bed in hope that it's not too late.
nse to inquiry about possible bedbugs
Hi , since all the bed bug issues the city has experienced for
the past 2 years, our hotel has taken an aggressive preventive approach. We treated our entire hotel, put covers on all of our mattresses and bring a dog in to inspect quarterly. When we have brought the dog, fortunately there has been no problem identified. We have him also inspect guest luggage storage areas and have had the dog previously detect the issue on guest luggage and we treat those areas more often than others. The pest control companies say there is no way to completely be preventive, but to stay aggressive and that is the approach we have adopted. I will go and check the room in which you stayed, but do not know of any issues in our hotel. I am sorry this has
happened to you, but unfortunately airports, planes, almost any type of transportation has the same visitors we do and the transference is inevitable. I will report to you if we find anything. Again sorry that is how your visit ended and hope it was not something that was part of our hotel. Have a wonderful week.
