Woman evicted after 9-year stay at Racine hotel

By  | 

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- A woman who has been staying at an upscale Racine hotel for nine years will be evicted after she ran up a $29,000 bill.

A Journal Times of Racine report (http://bit.ly/1bO0m5q ) says Jana Ganjian first checked into the Racine Marriott in 2004.

She made some of her $89-per-day payments using her monthly disability benefits. But after she filed for bankruptcy in August the Marriott began eviction proceedings.

It's not clear why the hotel allowed her to remain so long. After her eviction hearing Friday, hotel general manager Brian Wismar declined to discuss her situation, citing customer privacy.

Ganjian says she has a lupus-like condition that prevents her from working. She says she's been living in the hotel because she has no family and she couldn't afford to rent a place.
