Sex trafficking suit filed against five New Hampshire hotels

A developmentally disabled woman who said she was a victim of sex trafficking is suing the owners of five hotels in New Hampshire, arguing that they should have known what was going on and done more to prevent it.

The woman, identified only as K.B., filed the suit Monday in federal court. According to the suit, the abuse began in 2016 when she was 26, allegedly at the Holiday Inn in Concord, the Best Western Inns in Concord and Keene, the TownePlace Suits in Gilford and the Super 8 in Tilton.

But the suit names the owners of the hotel brands, the Inter-Continental Hotels Corp. (Holiday Inn), the Wyndham Hotel and Resorts (Super 8), Marriott International (TownePlace Suites) and Best Western, blaming them for not setting policies or not following those already set to train employees to recognize signs of sex trafficking.
