Hammerco intends to file a proposed class proceeding on behalf of Canadian residents whose personal information may have been affected by the recently disclosed data breach by Marriott Hotels.

The Marriott says up to half a billion people who stayed at Starwood hotels between 2014 and 2018 may have had their personal information stolen. Marriott says hotels owned by the Starwood chain are affected. Those include:

  • W Hotels
  • St. Regis
  • Sheraton Hotels & Resorts
  • Westin Hotels & Resorts
  • Element Hotels
  • Aloft Hotels
  • The Luxury Collection
  • Tribute Portfolio
  • Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts
  • Four Points by Sheraton and Design Hotels
  • Starwood-branded timeshare properties

Marriott says its own Marriott-branded hotels are not impacted because they use a different software system that wasn’t breached. However, anyone who stayed at a Starwood-owned hotel between 2014 and September 2018 may have had their data stolen. Canadian locations would be included.
