We checked into the Hotel on June 30th, 2013, with my girlfriend and her two sons. The first night one of the teenagers said he was bitten by something. He had red bumps on his arms an shoulders. I thought he had mosquito bites. The next day the other teen showed me similar bumps and they scratched them until they bled. I reported the incident to the Hotel and they sent someone to inspect the beds. we returned to our room and found no evidence of anyone touching the bedding. The beds were unmad

e and nothing had been moved. I went down to the Housekeeping Manager, Juan. I asked him what happened and was told they did a visual inspection. On my insistence they sent experts to inspect the beds and they also found no evidence of bedbugs.I was assured that they did a thorough inspection and came up with no evidence of bedbugs. We went around and around until it was time to check out. The Manager of housekeeping Gave us breakfast on the house as some sort of compensation for our experience but now I know I should have gone further and demanded something more. I have never had any experience with this and never expected this at such a nice hotel.Now that I know better nothing surprises me. Room 476 will forever stay in our memory of and our stay at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights, in room 657 and had no problems with bugs of any kind.


I checked in on Feb. 18/11 to room 616 and awoke on Sunday Feb. 20/11 with blood on the bedsheet next to the mattress where my left shoulder was resting. Unfortunately, due to fatigue of a very late arrival, upon initially checking in, I only checked a about two feet of the mattress for evidence of infestation. Later the morning of Feb. 20/11, I noticed a itch on my left shoulder and scratched and noticed blood. I notified the hotel on Feb. 20/11 and my room had already been changed that day for

a better view to room 646 for the remaining 5 days of my stay.

i went to St. Francis Memorial Hospital in the evening on Sunday Feb. 20/11 after the assistant manager of the hotel on Sunday night Feb. 20/11 thought my shoulder appeared to be bitten by "spider" bite. i was examined by Dr. Travis Harris on St. Francis Memorial Hospital Emergency Room who noted that the skin appeared to have swelling and redness associated with a insect bite and then a subsequent scratch. He did not think that it was a spider bite but a bite more consistent with a bed bug or mosquito. There was no evidence that the skin was necrotizing so a spider bite was ruled out and i was told not to further scratch the area to reduce infection risks. Since there are not many mosquitoes at this time of year in San Francisco, my dermatologist suggested that I treat this as a bed bug bite and take all the precautions with returning home from the hotel by leaving my luggage outside the house and taking my clothes off immediately at the washing machine and put them in hot wash and dryer before going to the bedroom to reduce the risks of bringing the eggs home to hatch.

The hotel had both rooms 616 apparently and 646 inspected by Echo labs for bed bugs infestation and they could not find evidence of active infestation of bed bugs. However, as a physician I pointed out to the hotel that the an early or mild infestation is difficult to detect in the early stages and that bugs can go for months without re feeding and they agreed with this. The Echo labs technician said that the bedbugs are winning the "war" at this time in history. The hotel offered to ""superclean room 646 and clean my clothes before departing on Feb. 25/11 and did so. The hotel management mentioned that bedbugs can travel through electrical circuits outlets from room to room so it is difficult to be completely safe and the next traveller can bring the eggs on the luggage or clothing to the hotel.

So be very vigilant and check the whole mattress and the box spring in the cracks and plastic coverings especially at the head of the bed where the bugs like to hang out and bite softer skin areas than the the feet.
