The New Yorker Hotel (NYC): “BED BUGS!”

Date of stay: April 2011

I stayed in the hotel April 16th 2011, with bed bug bites everywhere. Location and service is fine but I obviously would not return because they are most definitely infested. Also, the shower was scorching hot and the only way to fix it was to shut the hot water off completely but that may have been an issue only in the room I stayed in.

Bedbugs are no more of a risk in NYC than any other city anywhere. One of the worst outbreaks was in Ohio.

Bedbugs are pandemic, world travelers. Australia has had a serious infestation and dealt with them for the past decade. They attach themselves to clothing and secrete themselves in luggage and can turn up anywhere and everywhere in our now global society.

In the U.S. health departments take the report of bed bugs seriously and can shut down any public accommodation like a hotel until the problem is eradicated. So, a list good today really may not be relevant tomorrow for the problem most likely was cured.

In 2008, as I recall, a 4-star Washington DC hotel was forced to close its doors until it solved the bed bug problem. It didn't take them long to get it fumigated and its doors re opened.

Cool CANADA -- Toronto Report -- June 10, 2011

NEW Reports of Toronto bed bug infestations spike by nearly 40% in 2010

Toronto has more bedbug infestations than any city in Canada

Tristin Hopper Jun 10, 2011

Reports of Toronto bed bug infestations spiked by nearly 40% in 2010, says a report released Friday by Global News. City officials recorded 2,106 infestation reports in 2010, a 38% increase over the 1,528 cases reported in 2009. The Global report was compiled with City of Toronto data obtained through access-to-information laws.

The numbers do not necessarily mean there were 38% more bedbugs in Toronto in 2010, it may just indicate a bedbug-savvy populace that is more inclined to report their bedbug problem, says Reg Ayre, manager of Healthy Environments for Toronto Public Health. “I’m not seeing a massive exponential growth of bedbugs across the city,” he says.

However, there’s no denying Toronto remains in the throes of a bedbug renaissance. The epidemic has prompted the growth of a massive anti-bedbug industry. In Toronto, the Yellow Pages abound with companies that will poison, scrub or cook bedbugs out of a home. In 2009, a Toronto business became the first in Canada to offer bedbug-sniffing beagles.

Re: The Bedbug Registry -- USA Hotels Bed Bug Listing

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Alpharetta, GA on June 27 and the next day noticed a string of 6 red itchy bumps on my right arm. My doctor says they are bed bug bites. For $139 a night you would think you would have a clean, safe room. I'll never stay at a Hilton again...

Bed bugs are one of the most irritating creatures on the planet. They are little insects that suck human blood for their survival. Though the commonly accepted is that they are too tiny to be seen, it's not entirely true. These insects often come to life in our homes at night, therefore making it all the more difficult for us to spot a bed bug infestation.

Bed bug in Los Angeles (see the link in my profile) is another issue than NYC.
