Supports employer right to promote without fully explaining

[In an opinion about a case about a hotel’s promotion practices being based on pretexts, Alito concluded that] one “might think the hotel’s stated reasons for promoting someone else are weak, but that this isn’t enough to show they were pretextual.”
