New Mexico family sues hotel over alleged peeping

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico family is suing an Albuquerque hotel, claiming they caught a worker peeping into their room while they showered.

Evangeline and Eric Vigil of Alcalde filed the lawsuit Tuesday, saying they found a hole in the wall by the shower faucet and saw someone's eye looking at them after hearing noises while showering at a Ramada Inn in April 2010.

The suit says Evangeline Vigil checked into the hotel with her 17-year-old son and minor daughter and was told she was getting a "special rate." The Vigils say hotel staff weren't aware her husband would be coming later.

Attorneys for the hotel couldn't immediately be reached for comment. Neither could officials for Wyndham Worldwide Corp., which franchises Ramada hotels and is also named in the suit.
