This happened a few months ago but I just recently saw the article. It was from a reception in the presidential suite of the at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center for colleagues, close friends and family of Dr. Celeste Malone, head of the National Association of School Psychologists. It’s not clear to me if the picture above is of the reception in the presidential suite or not. If so, that does seem like a lot of people in one hotel suite, but I also tend to agree with Dr. Malone that this would likely have been handled differently if it had been a group of white people. Again according to Dr. Malone, there was no music playing, they received no warnings about noise and quiet hours at the hotel didn’t start for 30 minutes. On the other hand, I know that people tend to underestimate the amount of noise that they produce.
This happened in February so I am trying to see if I can track down if anything happened. All I’ve seen so far is an apology letter posted by the Hyatt Regency on their Facebook page.
