July 25, 2009, My husband and I checked into the Best Western Uptown Hotel at 10:00 pm. At 11:30 pm, I went to bed. My husband joined me at 1:30 am. At 2:30 am, I woke up ithcy with bumps. I screamed because I felt something crawling on me. We turned on a low light, pulled back the bedding and saw tons of bugs crawling on the bed. I was bitten over 300 times in 3 hours. I had a major allergic reaction to the bites. We just got to Vancouver from Calgay, AB. I never heard of or seen bed b
ugs until that night. The hotel handled the entire situation very bad. I have pictures of the bugs in the bed and of my bites, I have the hotels and medical reports in regards to this matter.
I spent the next day at the hospital because my face, hands and legs were swollen right up.
My husband did not get bitten. I was told by the city and Vancouver Health Authority that some people who get bitten don't show bumps.
