Stayed a few days and are covered in bed bug bites . We have traveleved from Florida to visit family . We are alarmed at the reviews posted and the little response they have recieved from the hotel . We will have to contact them as we have left not knowing what to think. Now that we have confirmed what they are we are truly dissapointed .We will be calling the Health department .

I checked in on 28 June. I too was on the eighth floor. After the first day I didnt notice anything. On the second morning I woke up itchy but didnt think much of it and didnt really notice bites. I did have a couple but brushed them off as mosquito bites as I had been walking around the nite before. Today I got up and I was covered with bites. I had no clue where I got them from. Went in to work and showed my friend and she freaked out and said I had bed bug bites. Quickly called the hotel. Th

ey said they would move me. Got back tonite and they did move me to the fifth floor. All my stuff was in plastic bags so I think it was heat treated. At least they said they did. I am very upset and itchy and will never stay here again.

Stayed in a room on the eighth floor at this hotel during the BIO convention on June 17, 2015. Returned from dinner to find bed bugs on the comforter. Hotel promptly switched my room, but one cannot unring a bell. I surmise they probably had many incidents recently because I had to fill out a report at the front desk and the hotel was out of blank forms- we were told they had recently printed several.

The hotel also recommended putting clothing in the dryer when we returned home. However, thi

s does not account for the eggs the bugs could lay in the luggage, or on anything else that came into contact with any surface in the room. The eggs can be killed with high concentration ethanol. Improper handling may be part of the reason the hotel is infested. Beware before booking

stayed in the hotel in may and june 2015 and was bitten by bed bugs so had to change rooms on 7th floor.
colleague staying on the 8th floor had many bed bug bites.
the hotel seems infested with bed bugs and management seems indifferent to the problem.
in 2015 if you're planning on staying don't. Its gross.

I just stayed in Room 922 on 7/16 and 7/17 and my arms are now covered in bed bug bites. I awoke early (3am) on 7/17 because of the itching and soon after saw a bed bug on top of the sheets. The night manager came up and took pictures and the bug itself, but did not offer anything else. To make matters worse I spoke to the manager later in the morning around 8:30am and he stated that his housekeeper says the bug was a "spider" and this was "normal summertime activity." I've written a complai

nt via their web site and am awaiting a response. I'm now home and freaking out about the possibilities of having brought them with me, but will be laundering and inspecting everything.

I spent a night there in July 14,2011 found a bid bug on the bed , I picked it up with foil paper and brought it down to the front desk. the offered to move me to a different room but i was on my way out anyway. INITIALLY , i WAS NOT SURE WHAT THE BUG WAS BUT i ASKED THE STAFF TO UPDATE ME SO, A MANAGER SPOKE TO ME AND TOLD ME THAT THE EXTERMINATOR WILL BE IN TI IDENTIFY IT AND SUGGESTED THAT i THROW ALL MY CLOTHES IN THE DRYER WHEN I GET HOME.

I stayed at this hotel Dec 10-15, 2010. The first room we stayed in was on the seventh floor. After the first night my room mate had several welts on her collar bones and arms. We thought they may have been spider bites but after looking into it realized they were the typical "breakfast, lunch, dinner" bite pattern for bedbugs. After talking with the front desk, who said there were indications but no proof of bed bugs in the hotel, we were moved to a new room on the top floor which was supposed

to be bug free. I had no bites from the first room but the first morning in the new room I had several bites on my ankles and wrists.
The hotel management was very helpful and understanding and provided hot water washing and drying to kill the bugs in our clothes and bags to package our belongs into. Thankfully this meant we did not bring bugs home with us.
