"When it comes to U.S. sanctions on Iran, no detail is too small to overlook these days. Since February, publicly traded companies have filed nearly 500 disclosure forms about their business ties to Iran…The Hyatt hotel chain said that this year, an individual whom the Treasury Department identified as working for one of the National Iranian Oil Co.’s front companies stayed for five nights at the Grand Hyatt in Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur, a franchise not owned by the chain. The hotel netted about $400. But Hyatt said there was nothing wrong with that because no American people or products were involved." (Washington Post, "Under new law, companies disclosing even tiniest dealings with Iran," 12/4/13)
"Billed as a dialogue between American church leaders and President Ahmadinejad of Iran, the Religions for Peace event at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Thursday is shaping up as the focal point of this week's gathering of world leaders in New York City." (New York Sun, "Ahmadinejad Prepares To Steal the Scene," 9/22/08)
"The banquet hall of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in mid-town Manhattan had the feel of an extravagant Persian wedding on Wednesday night. A crowd of over one thousand guests, dressed in formal attire, sat around tightly packed tables munching on Iranian delicacies and chit-chatting casually in Farsi. But the occasion was a dinner hosted by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The guest list, all Iranian-Americans living in the tri-state area, had been drawn up from the database of Iran's mission to the United Nations and consulate in Washington D.C." (Wall Street Journal, "My Dinner with Ahmadinejad," 9/27/08)
