[This really stood out: "you seem to think it is their job - again if you report something like this you could get fired. would you do it?" because yes, I do think it's their job to report a health risk. I understand time schedules and all that jazz, but if a housekeeper were to walk into a room covered in blood - are they supposed to clean around it? A health hazard is a health hazard. I don't care if they speak English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese - there is going to be someone on their staff who understands them. And furthermore, why do you keep insisting that someone will be fired if they report it? In my field, not reporting it would lead to termination. I really can't wrap my mind around this .. at all.[/FONT][/QUOTE] I can't either. I just read the bedbug registry site. One family staying at POR was removed from their room because housekeeping reported signs of a bedbug infestation. You would think that good hotels that care about their reputations would encourage ( and train ) housekeeping to look for evidence and report it. Then it can be dealt with in a timely matter, before it spread. Seems Disney does this..and hotel can get bedbugs but one that looks for signs and deals with them correctly will get my money. Now I am also re-considering my post/pre Disney stay since the hotel I have chosen seems to have quite a bit of reports and many of them are unhappy at the way it was handled.
