Found 2 reports:

The second day of my stay at the Gem hotel, I woke up with 3 bites on my right neck. The following morning, about 6 - 8 more. I was also getting horrible allergic reaction to whatever that bit me. On the third day, I got bites on legs and my buttock as well, and the allergic reaction was so bad I had to go to an ER. When I was checking out of the hotel, I have collected more than 20 bites on my body.
We told the hotel about it and the manager said he'd check the room immediately. When we got ho

me we washed everything in hot water setting right away. The next day the manager called back and said they found nothing in the room but would gladly pay for a load of laundry'. I had a follow up doctor's appointment the second turn when I returned home. The doctor confirmed they were bug bites but he cold not tell what bugs. While I thought nightmare was over since we've come home, on the 4th day upon my return, I got 4 new bites. We freaked out, called in canine inspection to check for bed bugs. The sniffing dog confirmed that we got bed bugs in one of the suit cases and one of the backpacks we brought with us. Now we have to pay more than $2k on top of my medical expenses and the hotel would 'gladly pay for a load of laundry'. We are still trying to negotiate but we don't know what the outcome will be.

11/8/2012 - I came out of the shower to get dress and saw the bed bug crawling from under the mounds of pillow. I recorded the critter crawling around and I killed it. I brought it to the front desk to management. My room rate was discounted from $242 for the night to $199 (free would have been the appropriate move). The manager called house keeping and engineering to check it out.
