Who owns your favorite hotel?

This week in the New York Times, I cover the protest taking place in LA against the Beverly Hills Hotel. On one side, the protestors say supporting the hotel is supporting its owner, the Sultan of Brunei, who recently adopted Sharia or Islamic criminal law, which includes punishments such as dismemberment and death by stoning for homosexuality and adultery. On the other side, the hotel employees say they are unfairly targeted, and collateral damage in a boycott that belongs at the federal level. Read both sides here.
