Wyndham Garden is cleaning up after infestation

The Wyndham Garden Guam is responding after a rampant roach infestation forced the closure of one of its hotel floors, and numerous health code infractions also shuttered its tenant restaurant.

The Department of Public Health and Social Services inspected the hotel and restaurant over the weekend after a tip from a guest came into KUAM. 

Wyhndam Gardens President Sunari Li responded to KUAM. 

"Our guest well-being and safety is our top priority," he said.  "We are taking immediate steps to eradicate these public safety issues now and will take aggressive action in pest mitigation on a consistent and regular basis.  Public Health’s inspection found that our restaurant tenant was the source of most of the pest infestation on our property.  Unfortunately, their shortcomings to operate under proper sanitation regulations caused the infestation to spread to other parts of the hotel." 

While guests were moved out of the roach infested third floor to other floors, the Curry & Grill Cafe shut down because it posed an imminent health hazard, according to Public Health. 

Li said the before the hotel was inspected, it already scheduled extermination treatments for pest control. Rooms at the hotel also are undergoing deep cleaning treatments throughout the week. 

"We take this matter seriously and are coordinating our efforts with Public Health to ensure our rooms meet requisite sanitary standards," Li said. "Our hotel stands committed to our guests’ safety, well-being, and comfort. We are fully committed to do everything possible to garner a Public Health “A” rating and earn the public trust of our patrons and guests.”

Li said the hotel will undergo major room renovations later in the year to improve guest experiences.
