y cash $100 today.\" Oh.
I woke up the next day with a couple of red bites on my side. The day after, more bites on my arms and hands.
I was sitting on the bed working on my laptop when a little mouse ran across the room. My final straw. I went down to the front desk to let them know. They offered me another room. I said I\'d look and see. It smelled horribly of cigarette smoke.
I got on expedia and got myself booked at another hotel (which was fantastic - Century Plaza Hotel and Spa).
I asked if they\'d received word of these problems before.
\"Well, definitely the mouse is a first.\"
(Meaning, yes, we\'ve heard of the bedbugs).
\"And I wonder how it got all the way up to the 11th floor?\" (This said skeptically, as if I was possibly imagining or making up the mouse?)
Also, \"Are your bites itchy?\"
\"Yes,\" I replied.
\"Well bedbug bites don\'t itch. They hurt.\"
\"Then perhaps your hotel has given me fleas.\"
(By the way, bedbug bites DO itch. These were definitely bedbugs.)
Sandman offered no rebate or anything at all for any of my troubles.
Incidentally, Sandman Hotel was close to GM stadium which had hockey games going on. So the whole hotel seemed jam-packed with loud, drunk men with their faces painted, carrying cases of beer, and making a lot of noise. If that\'s your thing, and you don\'t mind bedbugs or mice, or shabby surroundings, or being jammed in an elevator with drunk hockey fans, and don\'t need to cash traveler\'s cheques, or want room service, you will love this hotel.
