New York Woman Sues Waldorf Astoria Over Bedbugs

October 25, 2010

A Long Island woman claims her one night at the Waldorf Astoria hotel has cost her $13,000 because her room was infested with bedbugs that came home with her.

Susanne Igneri filed a lawsuit against the upscale Manhattan hotel last week in Nassau County.

The Wall Street Journal obtained a letter from an exterminator hired by the Waldorf. It stated that a complete inspection of the room found no infestation days after the Igneris’ departure.

Igneri’s complaint claims bugs encountered during their Feb. 20 stay gave her 6-year-old daughter “permanent scarring to her face, legs, stomach, groin and body.”

She says her child also required treatment for “psychological and emotional injuries.”

Other suits over bedbugs have been reported in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
