The company could not be immediately reached.

The luxury hotel fell victim to a credit card breach in July.

The hotel industry has been hit by such breaches. Hyatt Hotels Corp had reported a malware attack to steal payment card data in January while Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc had reported a breach in November.
