Hotels Get A Wake Up Call
A security advisor contracted by the hotel industry and other private organizations told CBS News Thursday morning that major international hotel chains are rushing to reassess their security plans after the Mumbai attack. “There’s a real fear in the hotel business that there could be a copy-cat attack somewhere else in the world,” said the security consultant, who is based in London. He said security proposals made previously to international hotel chains, but were dismissed because of cost, are now back on the table. Because he is working with several large chains at present, he didn't want to speak on the record or give information as to which hotels, in which countries, were considering tighter security.
