Stayed here 10/13/13-10/16/13 and first morning I woke up with 3 bites on my arm. I looked at the mattress and did not see any signs. My husband said to me today he has small red dots all over his chest and I have a huge itchy bite on my leg. I can not say for sure if the room had bed bugs, but the signs point towards yes.

Stayed there on 8/23/13. Left with red bites on my legs.

We stayed at the Westin Times Square in Room 2910 with our family for two nights -- Saturday 6/29 into Sunday 6/30 and Sunday 6/30 into Monday 7/1. I discovered two bite marks close together on my husband's arm as we were driving away on 7/1. I then noticed two bite marks on my foot early this morning - 7/2. I then examined both children. My daughter had a bite that she had been scratching in her sleep. She had first noticed the bite on Sunday night. When I examined her I found two more bi

tes, one at the top of each of her legs. I did not notice any bite marks on our son.

I left a message for the hotel representative this morning around 9:30 and I am waiting to hear back.

We we at The Westin New York at Time Square last February 2012 (19th to 26th) and didn't noticed any bedbugs or other undesirable insects in or outside the room. We would stay at this hotel again, certainly!

Stayed at this hotel July 9-11 2011. Did experience repeated itching in bed and one morning noticed a couple of small itchy bumps that lasted a few days. Kept wondering if they were bed bugs and kept checking sheets for any sign but never found any. Then was sharing this with a friend when I got home and she said you need to lift the mattress and look underneath it. Didn't know that and didn't do that so can't be certain. All in all found the hotel pretty clean for NYC.

January 2011 Checked out of hotel in am, thought I had bites in the pm. Called 3 times in 2 days, did not get an answer. Finally got them to call me back and they had to wait over the weekend to get the company to come to the hotel to check the room. Ridiculous. I have my suitcase packed in a plastic bag with thousands of dollars of clothes and fur "waiting" to see if there are bed bugs.

Stayed at the hotel 12/25-12/27 and found no traces of bed bugs. Checked the sheets, mattresses, and all was clear! Been home for a couple days, and still no traces of itching or bed bugs. We called before we went to see if they took it seriously, and we could not get in touch with manager, however, as I mentioned, our room was bed bug clean!

I stayed at this hotel SEPT 28th thru OCT 3RD,2010
and had no problems. No Bed Bugs. The reception was polite as I asked specifically for a room that had no history of bed bugs.
Hotel is very cognizant of the bed bug problems in the New York City area.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Five reports of bedbugs for this hotel can be found at bedbugregistry here:

I note the hotel does not have a good track record of professionally handling the matter and seems to want to sweep any occurences under the rug or wants to say the person was allergic.

I only looked up this hotel when I saw it featured on Project Runway and was quite surprised to see that they do not take bedbugs seriously.

No nearby bug reports
