#1216 Kimpton hotels investigating payment card fraud
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, a nationwide chain of 62 boutique hotels, is investigating a string of unauthorized charges on payment cards used at a number of its locations.

It’s unknown how many cards are involved, nor at which locations.

“Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants takes the protection of payment card data very seriously. Kimpton was recently made aware of a report of unauthorized charges occurring on cards that were previously used legitimately at Kimpton properties. As soon as we learned of this, we immediately launched an investigation and engaged a leading security firm to provide us with support.

We are committed to swiftly resolving this matter. In the meantime, and in line with best practice, we recommend that individuals closely monitor their payment card account statements. If there are unauthorized charges, individuals should immediately notify their bank. Payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for such charges.”
