It is impossible to answer your question without a great deal more information about the occurrences. You also need to realize that many chain hotels are actually franchises or under some other similar licensing arrangement to use the name without the chain actually owning the individual locations. If the property you stayed at is locally owned it is very unlikely that you would have any way of getting jurisdiction in the U.S.
