Hyatt | Gold Passport - Explosion Reported at Grand Hyatt Amman
CBC News is reporting that smoke is billowing out of the Grand Hyatt Amman in Jordan... an American businessman is quoted as saying a bomb expolded in the lobby of either the Grand Hyatt or the adjacent Radisson.
Will post a link as soon as I get one.
Reuters is now reporting the Radisson was the target:

"popular with Israeli tourists" - :( - must be a politically motivated terrorist bombing. :td:

F*cking scumbag terrorists. They will only strengthen the rest of the world's resolve against them.
The Radison SAS, Grand Hyatt and Days Inn were all targeted.....

Both the Radisson & the Hyatt were bombed by suicide bombers that got inside the hotels. But the bomber couldn't get past the security blockades outside of the Days Inn & detonated in the parking lot. Why does the Days Inn have better security than the Radisson or the Hyatt? Praying no FT'ers were there...

Has anyone visited the Hyatt since the bombing? I am planning a visit in late December, and any feedback would be much appreciated.

Ok - lets try to keep on the subject without too much political commentary or commentary on moderation. Thanks.
