If you’ve booked a stay at a Starwood hotel, including a St. Regis, Westin, or W Hotel between 2014 and 2018, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news: your personal data, including your name, passport information, address, phone number, and email may have been stolen. The good news: Marriott will pay for new passports for those affected.
In what’s being called one of the largest customer data breaches in history, up to 500 million people who booked through the hotel group’s online database may be at risk for identity theft. Marriott is doing what it can to help, however, by offering to reimburse victims for the cost of new passports.
