Marriott International has issued a statement saying White Lodging “experienced unusual fraud patterns in connection with its systems that process credit card transactions.” Marriott says White Lodging is “in close contact with the banks and credit card companies.”
White Lodging manages 168 hotels under various brands in 21 states.
