Oy. It's like it's 2006 all over again with reports of bed bugs coming out from behind the mattress and making us queasy.

Last month, the Waldorf Astoria was publicly shamed for having bed bugs and although the hotel insisted their rooms were clean, they still upgraded the victim to one of their swanky Tower rooms.

But we all know, there can never be just one bed bug and there can never be just one bed bug complaint. A family from Michigan (warning: gross pic on this link) is also saying they got bit during their recent Waldorf-Astoria stay.

David and Christine Drabicki of Plymouth, Michigan say they brought bedbugs home with them after their trip to NYC, and were forced to evacuate their home for six weeks while it was treated for an infestation. Their lawyer tells Crain's that the couple "woke up in their hotel room to find bedbug bites all over them." To make up for the blood-sucking parasites, the hotel changed their room and gave them complimentary spa treatments.

The Pirates experience begins as you ring the doorbell, which plays, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life For Me,” and enter the living room. There you will find Old World rugs covering dark-stained hardwood floors, with wooden beams overhead. The Spanish colonial-style furnishings could be part of a pirate’s plunder, yet the room also provides landlubbers’ comforts including a wet bar, 42-inch plasma TV and surround sound stereo system.

Good to know in time for the Toronto Film Festival

You might want to book a room at the Thompson Toronto just for its cool rooftop infinity-edge pool with sweet vistas of the city, especially since it made our list of the top 10 Death-Defying Rooftop Hotel Pools. But you'll be high and dry if you try to take a nighttime dip.

According to our Foursquare Tips page, the pool closes at a super-early 7 p.m.
