I stayed at the Pontiac for 2 nights. A few days later I had about 25 freaking bed bug bites.

I really should have researched about the Pontiac Hotel before I stayed there. I stayed at the Pontiac for 5 days. I did not see any bites while I stayed there. After I arrived back New York, 2 days later I saw red raised itchy bumps on my arms and feet. I am now freaking out because I am so concerned that my home is infected. It was a very cheap hotel ($60/night). I would have stayed somewhere else even I would have to spend exrra money. Now I am thinking about calling a pest control pro
fessional to investigate my home. What a headache...

I got maybe 500 bites in one night. It happened in mid August 2011. It was my first and only time in the hotel. I left it one night later.

I was severely bitten by bed bugs at the Pontiac hotel. From the looks of the rooms and hotel in general, I should have suspected they might have a problem.
I stayed many times in this hotel from 9.26.11 - 10.26.11 and only got severely bitten by bed bugs during the last week. I believe I stayed in room 474, but I suspect other rooms were infested as well.
I know the Pontiac is one of the cheapest single-room hotels in the city (about $60 a night), but if you can afford about $25 more, I s
uggest the Fitzgerald (about $85 a night, taxes included).
