The Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center is one of 20 hotels in 10 states across and the District of Columbia that were hit by hackers, compromising guests’ credit card account numbers, card expiration dates, and verification codes.
HEI Hotels & Resorts, which operates just under 60 hotels and resorts under a variety of brands, announced last week it had been notified by its credit card processor about a potential breach, according to The Associated Press.
HEI operates the Boca Raton Marriott. The hotel’s general manager could not immediately be reached for comment.
In a notice to customers, HEI said those who used credit cards at “point-of-sale terminals at the affected properties” may have had their information compromised.
“We take the security of personal information very seriously, and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or concern this incident may cause,” the company said on its website.
Guests who made purchases at the Boca Raton Marriott between March 1, 2015 and June 7, 2015 and from December 15, 2015 and April 11, 2016, may have been affected by the breach, the company said.
HEI advised anyone who used a card at the affected hotels to review account statements and look for unusual activity in the future.
