A spokesperson for the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida, defends the hotel’s decision to host this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), citing the hotel company’s “highly inclusive environment.”
“We pride ourselves on operating a highly inclusive environment and believe that meeting facilitation is a central element of what we do as a hotel company,” the spokesperson said in a statement to Fox Business.
“We believe in the right of individuals and organizations to peacefully express their views, regardless of the degree to which the perspectives of those who host meetings and events at our hotels align with ours,” the spokesperson added. “Our own values support a culture that is characterized by empathy, respect, and a diversity of opinions and backgrounds, and we strive to bring this out through what we do and how we engage with those in our care.” .
The statement comes after online calls to boycott the hotel chain for its organization of the conservative event. Several unrelated tweets from the hotel chain were “provided” over the weekend by users who objected to the chain’s organization of the conference.
