I lived at the Covent Hotel from Dec 2005 to the end of Feb 2006, three full months. I did not know what bed bugs were and was being bit and scratching and finally found out I had bed bugs when Scott the desk clerk told me. I was very grateful to find out and at the time was given a new mattress and the room was fogged. I was Ok till the end of my stay there. I did not know the problem was to the extent it is now. Like I said I stayed there 8 years ago. Aside from this problem, I actually enjoye

d my time there living in a very exclusive neighborhood for a very reasonable price ($400 a month at the time). I do remember there was a little thievery there as I think I left my room open and I did notice a lot of drug use there. I don't think I could tolerate living there now if the bed bug problem is as bad as they say. But I am thankful at that time steps were made to rid my room of the bedbugs.

This, I garantee you us the worst case of bedbug infestation in any comercial building in the city of Chicago


These things lived in my books. Open a book and there were these BIG BLACK BUGS. I awoke every day with these nasty bites on my body. If you stay at this place, invest in bug spray, and sleep with the lights on.


UNBELIVABLE, the bedbugs in this place. I lived here in between leases. Holy crap! I had thought that bedbugs were a myth. Nope. HUGE ONES IN THIS PLACE!


I was in room 15, in the far northwest corner of this building, and I can attest to the plight of the men still living at Covent Hotel.

The bedbug situation is unbelievable (I became aware of the problem early on my second day there). I had to make moats for the bed legs in order to keep them from crawling up the bed posts at night- but to no avail: they would climb the walls & pop their body so that they would land on the bed.

I called the City after I left- I doubt anything has

been done since most tenants are extremely poor (with millionaires living right across Clark St. from them).

It gives me pleasure to see that most of the retail tenants have left- I hope the landlady's coffers continue to dwindle.

And I wish the best for the poor old guys who have to suffer in a place like this, in the twilight of their life.

I,ve been here a year now and the bed situation has gotten worse! I want to move badly, but dont have the funds to move nor secure an apt, so Im stuck here until my situation (or economy) gets better.

I have been barred from several homes because I transfered bed bugs to their homes. I do understand their position because I would probably do the same thing. In my opinon, "Ms.G" is the worse landlord that I,ve encountered! Between bed bugs,roaches,mental health issues with some of the tenants

,along with late night/early morning a**holes ringing the outside bell, Im losing it!

I set a date for the fall when I MUST be gone! I can't take it any longer!!!!

I was a desk clerk at this place for c.3 years.When I was there in the early part of the decade there were few if any bedbugs.Lots of roaches and a few mice were present.I have it on very good authority that bedbugs are in every room now.The desk clerks care but can do almost nothing.This place is so peculiar that you would have to see it to beleive it.If I was Mark Twain or Shakespeare maybe I could make a feeble stab at showing how goofy and bizarre the situation is there.There was very defin

ite illegal discrimation going on there.There was frequent stealing of possesions from tenants rooms by some of the maids.There is really not much a tenant can do except move. The owner is a mentally ill old lady who is becomming more and more senile.

As of 12/08/09, Slumlord Proprietor, "Ms G" has done nothing has been done to rectify the current bed bug problem. Talking with other men here, we all have the same problem: being bitten every night along with being up all night with very little sleep. As I'm writing this it is now 4:04am!

I am equally surprised at the numbetr of men who have been here for several years. Either lack of funds, comfortable with their present situation, or just have given up surprises me. It is my understandin

g that Hotel Covent has a 50% vacancy which doesn;t surprise me! This will be my last year here you can believe that! And as for Ms.G and Hotel Covent.........The best is yet to come for her...TRUST ME!!!!! My advice to men who are looking keep looking and avoid this place if you can!

my name is charles,i live at the covent hotel (
(about 1.5 month) i stop paying rent about two weeks ago and asked the landlord to please give me a new box spring and mattress, because the bedbug problem in this building is so bad that
it is hard to sleep at night. I also lost my
job because of the bedbug problem.my boss had
to let me go because of me scratching myself
around the customers and seeing little bug
crawling from under my hat or shirt.
I have reported to the deskclerk on sev

eral
occasions, have asked to have my apt. sprayed,
asked for new bedding (boxspring&mattress),
all the deskclerk could tell me was that he would tell the landlord but nothing would come of it.
I have had several conversationswith employees of
this building with no luck or help of any kind in regards to getting rid of the bedbugs this can help.

I`ve been here for 4 months and the bed bug problem is horrendous! I can't wait to leave!!!


I informed the desk person about the problem, but as always, your complaints fall on deaf ears and all "Ms G" (as everyone calls her) cares about is the rent money! I also was informed by a "realiable source" that she "secretly" puts an "X" by those who ar African_American tenants in her bldg. I was also informed that this practice has been going on for years, but was never challenged nor reported.

The bldg is in an upscale part of the city (East Lincoln Pk/Lakeview), which is no excuse for the terrible conditions it presently has.

I was living Room 12 for several months in 2006-07. Bed Bugs were all over the place, until I sprayed, but they kept coming in through a pipe in the ceiling after that. I moved out because I was being bit almost every night.


No names or room numbers, as this is anonymous. It\'s up to the occupant to aggressively fog and spray his room, which can reduce sightings to several a week. The scary thing is that obviously affluent and/or clean-cut men reside here--kicked out by their old lady, the landlord after one binge too many, laid off and lost the condo. Duh, do you think this just might wind in a 50-story building? Starting with the laptop?


this place is full of bedbugs. thousands if not millions in my room alone.
