- The boycott of the Beverly Hills Hotel and the other Dorchester Group hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei has ended — with a whimper.
- The protest began more than three years ago when the oil-rich sultan said he would introduce Shariah law in Brunei with penalties, including death, for homosexuality.But while many corporate events and charity benefits were canceled, less woke customers continued to book rooms and kept coming to the legendary Polo Lounge.
- The ban extended to the Dorchester in London, Le Meurice in Paris and the Principe di Savoia in Milan.
- But last weekend, Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley posted photos on Instagram of herself by the Beverly Hills Hotel’s pool and gardens with the caption: “My LA home for the weekend.”
