Opera soprano sues over hotel bedbugs

`An opera singer has filed a $6 million lawsuit against the Hilton Hotels Corp., complaining that bedbugs bit her over her arms, chest, neck and face when she stayed in one of its Phoenix hotels in November.

Soprano Alison Trainer says in court papers she had 150 bites all over her body, a “horrific” experience that left her afraid to sleep in a bed, caused her to lose weight and made her uncomfortable about her physical appearance.

Trainer’s lawyer, Kenneth J. Glassman, said that because of the bites his client suffered at Phoenix’s Hilton Suites between Nov. 20 and Nov. 26, “She looks like a piece of wood that has been attacked by termites.”‘
