HIV groups say their members turned away

- +

A Bangkok hotel denies claims it is discriminating against people with HIV/Aids by refusing to let them book rooms at the hotel for conferences. 

The Town in Town Hotel in Wang Thonglang district says it welcomes all guests to the hotel, rejecting claims that it has refused bookings by Aids/HIV groups because it was worried about what other guests would think.

"On the day the groups asked for a booking, all meeting rooms were full," a sales staff member said. "But we have given a booking to such groups in the past when rooms were available."
