Staff and guests have returned to the Grand Hotel in Brighton following a bomb scare.
The hotel received an anonymous phone call on Sunday afternoon from someone claiming there was an explosive device on site.
The hotel was evacuated and Sussex Police bomb squad were called. They carried out a search of the hotel, but found nothing suspicious.
Road closures and closures of adjacent car parks are being withdrawn.
Police say the call is now being regarded as a hoax.The adjacent Brighton Centre was evacuated as part of the precautions because it has an adjoining wall with the hotel, but the call did not threaten the Centre.
