11. Just curious, do they serve alcohol at the bar?

 

If there's a restaurant, does it serve any dishes that are prohibited to devout Muslims?

Regardless of the answers to these questions, they're not a basis for prohibiting the foreign ownership.

As a place of public accommodation, the hotel is subject to the Civil Rights Act. I'm rooting for the owners to announce that women can't stay at the hotel unless accompanied by their father or husband. Then the Hobby Lobby majority on the Supreme Court will face a choice to give them fits: Rule in favor of a Sharia-based exception to a statute that non-Muslims must obey, or rule in favor of women making an antidiscrimination claim.
