In 2013, UANI broke the news that the Iranian delegation would be staying at the ONE UN New York hotel (formerly known as the Millennium UN Plaza, of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels). In the lead up to President Rouhani’s arrival, UANI secured commitments from New York hotels to not host the Iranian delegation.
In May 2010, ONE UN hosted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference
In 2012, the Warwick New York Hotel had the shameful distinction of hosting Ahmadinejad for the second consecutive year. As in previous years, UANI broke the news about where Ahmadinejad was staying and alerted UANI supporters, the media and the public. As a result, the Warwick Hotel and its General Manager, Drew Schlesinger, were widely condemned and exposed to negative coverage in the media and severe reputational harm. In response to the Warwick's continued misconduct, UANI re-launched its boycott of the Warwick International Hotels group, led protests at the Warwick and relocated its headquarters to within the hotel during the duration of Amadinejad's visit.
For the 2011 UNGA, UANI was the first to learn that the Warwick New York Hotel would be accommodating Ahmadinejad. In response, UANI launched a boycott of the Warwick International Hotels group and relocated its headquarters to the Warwick Hotel for the remainder of Ahmadinejad’s visit to better coordinate protest activities. UANI’s actions resulted in in significant reputational and financial harm for the Warwick Hotel.
