New York City’s plush Waldorf Astoria Hotel is dealing with a rash of recent accusations from former guests of the hotel who say they were bitten while staying there, Crain’s New York reports.

A Michigan family stepped forward on Thursday to share their story with the public—and to sue the landmark hotel. According to their lawyer, Alan Schnurman, who is filing a lawsuit in Supreme Court of New York County on Thursday, the family brought bed bugs back to Plymouth, Mich. with them and were forced to evacuate their home for six weeks while it was treated for an infestation.

Last month, a Florida woman says she was bitten by the critters at the posh hotel while on a business trip; and last week a Long Island mother, Susanne Igneri, filed a complaint against the hotel alleging that she brought bed bugs home with her after a stay at the Waldorf.
