“The operator of several hotels across 10 states and Washington, D.C. — including Starwood, Marriott, Hyatt and Intercontinental locations — says guests may have had their payment data exposed by hackers who targeted the businesses with malware starting last year.

HEI Hotels & Resorts says malware was discovered in early to mid-June on payment systems used at restaurants, bars, spas, lobby shops, and other facilities at the properties, a spokesman told Reuters. Included on the list of affected locations are 12 Starwood hotels, six Marriott International properties, one Hyatt hotel and one InterContinental Hotels Group location.”
