A New York business woman is suing Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, claiming staff at one of their hotels gave her room key to a drunken man who allegedly sexually assaulted her in her bed.
Alison Fournier announced the suit today at a news conference with women’s rights lawyer Gloria Allred.
According to the suit, Fournier was in her locked room in Hotel Kämp, a hotel operated by Starwood Hotels in Helsinki, Finland, on the night of Jan. 15, 2011 when she was sexually assaulted.
The man, who was “visibly intoxicated,” had undressed, slipped into her bed, and proceeded to grope her naked body, the suit says.
