Does anyone know if New York City hotels are still having trouble with bedbugs?

Best answer:

Answer by NYC Kidd

It is vitrually trouble free. To be safe you should check creases in the bed linens, and seams and tufts of mattresses and box springs, in particular, may harbor bed bugs or their eggs.

Also, they may also be found within pleats of curtains, beneath loose areas of wallpaper near the bed, in corners of desks and dressers, within spaces of wicker furniture, behind cove molding, and in laundry or other items on the floor or around the room. Sometimes, characteristic dark brown or reddish fecal spots of bed bugs are apparent on the bed linens, mattress or walls near the bed.

A peculiar coriander-like odor may be detected in some heavily infested rooms.

The bedbug problem was overhyped on TV several years ago on a slow news day. They do happen, but is extremely rare. As long as you aren’t staying in a dump, you’ll be fine.
