This hotel made our trip to New York quite miserable. The room we were at (1106) was infested with bed bugs. It was not just a single bed bug, but multiple nests of bed bugs at different stages of development in one of the mattresses that are evidence of long-term infestation. Luckily, I was travelling with an entomologist that quickly identified the plague and took photos and videos of the infestation to document the whole thing. We are in the process of sharing this with th

e hotel management.

As soon as we noticed the infestation we immediately left the room and contacted the staff. The staff was apologetic but seemed surprisingly unphased by the situation. They offered to change the room but at that point, we were too concerned that the infestation was widespread so we decided to leave. We were then left at 1 am, homeless in search for a hotel with a vacant room in Manhattan. This ended up costing us substantially more since it was a last minute search

We also found out that they are aware of the issue and have an exterminator that goes there twice a month. Looking through the reviews of Seafarers International House here and in other places it is clear that we are not the only people complaining about this issue.

How is Seafarers & International House allowed to operate a hotel and rent rooms with a known public health issue is beyond our comprehension.

We have plenty of photos and videos documenting the whole infestation
