News for the Hospitality Executive
An investigation by the FBI and local law enforcement is underway to determine the source of the software breach. The breach appears to have been isolated to locations where credit cards were physically swiped. Internet, phone and other transactions appear not to have been compromised.
Destination, which operates more than 30 hotels and resorts nationwide, is in the process of notifying guests who recently stayed at its hotels whose cards may have been compromised, advising them to contact their credit card companies. Guests’ personal identification information such as addresses were not compromised as a result of the incident.
“We are concerned for our guests and we sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause them,” said Charlie Peck, president and chief operating officer of Destination. “We know we are not the first hotel company to be victimized by this kind of attack, but our greatest concern is for our guests who may be affected as well.”
Destination guests with any questions about this issue can contact the company directly at 303-268-6865 or the general manager at the property at which they stayed.
