I stayed in the Illinois room at the Delta queen over the 4th of July holiday a couple of years ago. I too had mutiple bedbug bites after coming home.I didn't know what they were, looked them up on the internet. I was too embarrassed to report it-treated it myself with a 2-3 weeks worth of benedryl caplets and cream.

This is in responds to the Bed Bugs report. Thank you for your comments. We take them very serious. As soon as we seen your pictures the other day we called our bug man out again to check rooms. There was nothing found in the room or any bed bugs anywhere on the boat. We apologize for any inconveniences cause while staying with us. Please accept our apology.

We noticed the swollen, red rows of bites (about 16 bites in all) the moment we woke up but weren't sure what they were. John, at the front desk's only response was, "we'll have our bug guy come look at it." The bites got redder, angrier and somehow more solid throughout the day and we realized we definitely encountered bedbugs. We called John again, I had to prompt him to take my number so the manager could call me, which he never did, though I have called two or three times since. In summary,
it was a HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE and I would NEVER stay at this hotel again due to the complete APATHY of management. Did I mention the bedbugs?!
