A friend and I stayed here from March 24th-26th, although our reservations were from March 24th-27th. Let me explain…
We choose the wrong week to go down to Miami because the WMC was going on at the time and it was almost impossible to find a hotel, so we walked up to the doorsteps of the Parisian Hotel and Suites, happy to hear that they had a vacancy available and could accommodate us for the length of our stay. It was too good to be true.
Upon inspection, the room was as we expected for the area and price. The curtains and bedspread were something from a dump, and we decided immediately not to sleep under the covers. That night I was bitten by bead bugs, and too make matters worst I had on a long sleeved jacket and pants night set, as well as ballet flats for house wear. I had been bitten on my chin several times, my hands, forearms, legs and feet. At least 15% of my body was covered in red, burning, bites.
I went to CVS to purchase some RID (for bed bugs) and Cortisone ($18) for my bites. Told the receptionist and they moved us to the Geneva next door. For fear that, I may have bed bugs in my luggage; I went to the Laundromat to clean everything ($20). After walking around in flip flops, I discovered two blisters that had formed from at least two bites. The next morning the swelling was unbearable and the cortisone was not doing anything for me, so I went back to the CVS and went to the Minute Clinic. The Nurse Practitioner said that she could write me a prescription ($14) for something stronger and verify again that they were bed bug bites ($64).
So in addition to the $500 for the room I had to pay an additional $116 for an inconvenience they had caused. I went to ask to speak to the manager to be reimbursed for my medical expenses, they told me to wait and someone would call. I explained I was leaving the next morning for an early flight and needed to speak to someone that evening so they said someone would be on later. Called 2 hours later, still no response and although it was 3 in the afternoon, I was assured a manager would be able to help me outside of normal business hours. Went back to the hotel, waited in the lobby for 3 hours after being told to have a seat and wait for the manager he was busy (Jay). Finally, my patience had been dissolved and I demanded to speak to the manager quite loudly because he said loud enough for me to hear at least 10 feet away that he was too busy to see anyone that was waiting to see him. Too make a long story short, he told the receptionist to call the police, but they had no grounds to have me removed. They kicked us out the hotel, but not before cursing me and my friend out as well as someone suggesting that their customer service sucked. They called him names that should never be repeated.
Don’t stay here, I think the place is a money laundering place, besides the cops operate like they are in a 3rd world country, and I am surprised the city, hell even the state is apart of the United States. Go to the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint against them!
I have been to Miami before and this trip has made me swear off of ever traveling to the state of Florida ever again unless it is to make a connecting flight or get on a cruise!
