    The extent of the data breach haven't fully been revealed yet, but if you've stayed at a Mandarin Oriental property recently it might be worthwhile to keep an extra close eye on your statements...

    Avoiding this might be the one and only upshot to staying at the Aria SkySuites instead of MO! :)

    The article fails to mention that the entire SF MO was stolen! ;)

    LOL, luckyBanker? :p

    They're not releasing specific hotel details yet according to the article. I guess if you get a call from your cc company then we know that's the case: ;)

    Which hotels have been affected?

    We can confirm that only an isolated number of hotels in the US and Europe have been affected, and none in Asia. The forensic investigation is still underway and we are unable to confirm specific hotel details at this time.

    I may return to the MO next year. Probably for the best.

    I actually liked regular Aria more than the SkySuites.

    I actually liked Vdara over Aria, or at least the suite I was in last year.

    Sadly this year they've moved the conference to Mandalay Bay, so we'll see how that plays out.

    Can you stay in the Four Seasons (within the Mandalay)?

    I'm actually booked on the Delano now that their pillow situation has been sorted out... :)

    Hopefully I won't have any issues getting stay credit with Hyatt, and it should be far enough away from the casino shenanigans that I won't have to worry about it.
