I have decided to write only after reading the previous posting of 10/18/10 and the hotel's response on 11/11/10.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel on the nights of Sept 12, 13, 14 of 2010. We had packed very protectively for possible bedbug exposure and quite fully researched what to look for. On the morning of 9/13 I awoke with one bite on my finger which at that point I was willing to believe was a mosquito bite. We checked again and saw no evidence of bedbugs. On the morning of 9/15

I awoke with two more bites and by then the one on my finger had gotten worse. We checked again for bedbugs and found at least three pieces of evidence in my bed, none in hers. We notified management and they sent a crew to inspect. With a very quick, cursory glance all evidence was dismissed as "fuzz" and "mosquito bites". The mattress was quickly grabbed and turned over, thus losing the pieces of evidence. The room obviously did not have a huge infestation, but it did have a few, which probably would not appear as a moving bedbug(s) in the middle of the morning. We were told the room would be sealed off and further checked, though we do not know if this happened. Overall, we found the response to be dismissive.

Yes these matters are serious and accusations should not be reported falsely or casually. They should be treated as such by the hotel also, as the anxiety that results to the occupant is quite severe and lasting. And the bites are no fun either.
