We stayed in a best western in paris earlier this year. It seems that data losses are become a fact of everyday life, it is disgraceful.

I was staying in a few Best Western Hotels a year or two ago with the company I worked for.

Not heard of this until now so hopefully none of our details were stolen.

Um does this effect anybody in the US that stayed with them without using their online functions? Cause in november and december we used them about 6 times cause we had a few shows to do in another state. We used credit card at the desk.
