NEW YORK (REUTERS) - A credit card data breach has been detected that exposed guests at certain Marriott, Holiday Inn, Sheraton and other hotel properties to theft, according to hotel management firm White Lodging Services.
The breach occurred at food and beverage outlets at 14 hotels, including some operated under the Westin, Renaissance and Radisson names, between March 20 and Dec 16 last year, White Lodging said in a statement.
