Bed bugs at the W Hotel. How many points?

My standard advice for hotel room arrival bed bug checks:
- Pull back the covers and look for small brown stains, which are likely bed bug feces.
- Pull back the sheets and look at the mattress.
- Use the luggage rack to store your bag rather than the other bed or furniture - bed bugs don’t climb well on the wood or metal surfaces most luggage racks are made from.

If you see any evidence of them reject the room immediately. Don’t wait until bitten.

I’ve rejected 2 of the last 100 rooms I’ve checked into. That ~2% rate has been pretty consistent in my 19 years of business travel around the world.

Which W? Help out your fellow fish! And I’d say points and $$ for luggage and dry cleaning costs.

I’ll reveal the location once the deal is complete with the hotel manager.

😷 this is my nightmare. I’ve seen a few posts about this over the last few months. You guys find out because you get bites? Or should I be checking the mattress on arrival every time?

Woke up with bites? Oh f no! 100k points AND free nights and reimbursement of things needing to be replaced. Or...you Yelp df out of them.

They offered 36k for 3 nights or cash.

The equivalent of your stay. If 3 nights, enough points for 3 nights. Plus cleaning and expenses

Sorry not cash but free stay.

They already offered to heat treat the luggage overnight.

I’d say 100k points plus re-imbursement for anything I had to replace (shirts, luggage, etc.). However, I have zero experience with this

did you wake up itchy with red bumps or find the little critters before going to bed?

Woke up with bites...

Anyone with experience in how many points are realistic?

Thanks PwC3!

I got 30k points for a roach in the bathroom once. I’d expect more for bedbugs

Yeah I got 30K after a 1 night stay for a random small unidentifiable bug I found when I woke up on top of the comforter and killed on my bed. The guy at the front desk was mortified when he asked how my stay was when I went to check out.

My worst nightmare. I won't let the hotel get away easy

All the points

Pretty obvious but has anyone else thought about the impact on effective comp that comes with the lack of travel, and the consequences for talent management? Banks are jacking base salaries to the moon, but our industry is barely budging.

Consider the loss of food expensing that had netted us hundreds of dollars per week. The lack of payment in lieu of travel on weekends. The rewards points/miles we’re not accruing. The tax-free nature of all of it. Is it any surprise we're hurting for talent?

Our leadership says catching delta is “mild” and we can do “more research”. They won’t require vax cards. Some of our live in partners either don’t have insurance or have health concerns like asthma. So, coworkers don’t want to go either 😵
