Leftists Want to Boycott Hyatt Hotels for Hosting CPAC

'We believe that the facilitation of gatherings is a central element of what we do as a hospitality company...'

Hyatt Hotels shut down criticism from leftist activists demanding a boycott of the hotel chain because it agreed to host the Conservative Political Action Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida this year.

The hashtag #BoycottHyatt began trending this weekend on social media after thousands of liberals declared they would never give their business to Hyatt again because of its decision to host CPAC. Several users even accused Hyatt of cozying up to “Nazis” and “white supremacists.”

Hyatt responded by saying the company believes in diversity of thought, which is why it agreed to host CPAC.

“We take pride in operating a highly inclusive environment and we believe that the facilitation of gatherings is a central element of what we do as a hospitality company. We believe in the right of individuals and organizations to peacefully express their views, independent of the degree to which the perspectives of those hosting meetings and events at our hotels align with ours,” the hotel chain said in a statement.

CPAC is normally held outside of Washington, D.C. but was moved to Florida this year due to coronavirus-related restrictions.
