NEW YORK (AP) - 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.”
