A married couple are suing a hotel chain after claiming someone watched them have sex through their room’s peephole.
Nathan and Christina Parks, both 35 from from Texas, stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Stapleton, Denver, last September.
On Tuesday (local time), the couple filed a lawsuit against the chain for invasion of privacy, according to local publication KDVR.
Mr Parks claims that he opened their door on September 11 to find the peephole laying on the ground.
The shocked couple allege someone had been watching them, possibly while they were being intimate or walking around naked.
“When I opened the door and I looked at it from the outside, I could tell that there was a smudge mark where somebody’s face and handprints were up on the door. Clearly they were peeking into our room,” Mr Parks said, according to the publication.
Mrs Parks said the couple had been excited for some “adult time” away from their small children.
“You have this premise of expecting privacy and having a little alone time,” she said.
“We were intimate with each other and enjoying a date night with each other, just feel humongously [sic] violating that somebody likely was witness to that and may have even taken video of that or photos we don’t know what’s out there,” Ms Parks said, according to the publication.
The lawsuit alleges the “defendant admitted that the room had recently been renovated and that peephole on Plaintiffs’ hotel door was not secured with Loctite glue.”
DoubleTree by Hilton told FOX31 the safety and well-being off guests is its top priority.
“Because we take matters related to guest privacy very seriously, our front desk manager, security supervisor, and General Manager immediately responded to and investigated the report made by Mr and Ms Parks,” the chain said in a statement.
“After a comprehensive review in September 2019, including playback of lobby CCTV footage, we were unable to substantiate the couple’s allegations that they were followed back to their room or were inappropriately observed by a third party.”
