From Trip advisor.com for Hotel 17
Nov 12 2010
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the end of October. It was our last stop after an 8 week tour of the USA and what a dreadful end to an amazing trip. I booked this hotel in advance because of the excellent reviews on tripadvisor but how I regret this. I had no problem with the shared bathroom or tiny o
ld room but I did have a problem with the bites all over my body from bed bugs! I woke up after the 1st night and had bites on the whole of my body and on my face and they itched terribly. I complained to the front desk who immediately moved us to another room. This room was much bigger and modern than our dingy old room on the 7th floor and even had a flat screen tv but once more I woke up with even more bites.
The biggest disappointment was that we had stayed in the cheapest motels whilst visiting America and never experienced this problem. Furthermore we paid £100 a night for this room which I think is quite steep for the size and quality of the original room we were given. The bed squeeked everytime you moved and could hardly fit the two of us in it as it was a more like a single bed than a double.
DO NOT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO COME HOME WITH BITES ALL OVER YOUR BODY! HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
