So, I just saw a terrifying thread about a woman's experience in a hotel in Washington DC that sounds like an old-school urban legend come to life.

A man claiming to be from housekeeping tried to break into her room at 1AM, and the hotel staff acted like it was a normal occurance when she told them about it. The guy had a key to unlock the door, but it was also kept closed by a doorstop, which made him shout angrily, demanding she open the door (which she didn't). She also mentions being watched by suspicious people outside the hotel upon her arrival, and there are online reviews from other guests of the same hotel describing similar events being experienced or witnessed.

The thread is here, warning for anyone who might be upset by detailed descriptions of situations involving risk of kidnapping/stalking/violence.

Sorry if this isn't considered strange enough for this forum, but like I said, the idea of a hotel that's a front for a human trafficking ring does sound like a classic urban legend from the early days of the internet.

Swifty has a Trip Advisor thread about this.

I was being sarcastic and did an in-joke. We love people who turn up and post stuff. So what do you know about this?

I don't know anything more about this case, but it's not the first unusual scheme I've heard of regarding human trafficking in the US. There stories a few years ago about places offering decent-paying part time jobs to teenagers that were fronts. Snopes has them listed as false, though.
