Bartell Hotels today (September 8) said it is notifying customers of five of its seven San Diego hotels that there was a data breach earlier this year.

The compromised information includes credit-card numbers of 43,000 to 55,000 individuals who, between February 16 and May 13, stayed at Best Western Plus Island Palm & Marina, the Dana on Mission Bay, Humphreys Half Moon Inn & Suites, Pacific Terrace Hotel, and the Days Hotel-Hotel Circle.

Those who stayed at those facilities between those dates are encouraged to review their account statements, monitor credit reports for suspicious activity, and notify the banks that issued their cards.

Bartell says that the breach was limited to payment-card data and that no other personally identifiable information was exposed.

For something as serious as this, Bartell sure seems to know a lot of precise information about it, as in the exact start and stop dates. Oh, and they "know" that it was limited to payment data. I'd wonder how they found out. Maybe when a flock of customers reported bogus charges that happened right after they stayed at one of those hotels? These credit card issuers are really eating huge amounts of fraud loss, which points up how profitable the cards are nowadays.
