The owner of the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotel brands has disclosed that payment card-stealing malware has struck about 1,200 of its franchisees' properties. UK-based Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) said all but one of the locations affected were in the US, with the other being in Puerto Rico. Guests have been warned they could have had money stolen as a consequence. One expert said there might be further hotels affected. Buckinghamshire-based IHG had previously reported in February that a dozen US hotels that it managed itself had been affected by the same attack. "Individuals should closely monitor their payment card account statements," a spokeswoman told the BBC following the latest discovery. "If there are unauthorised charges, individuals should immediately notify their bank. "Payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for such charges." IHG said an investigation had detected signs the malware had been active at front-desk payment locations at the hotels between 29 September and 29 December 2016. However, it only has confirmation that the threat was definitely eradicated last month. The attack hijacked information taken from the payment cards' magnetic strips as it was being routed through the hotels' computer servers, said the hotel group. This could include the card number, expiration date and verification code. IHG does not believe other guest information was stolen. It has published a tool for visitors to check if hotels they stayed at are among those affected. The firm notes that other franchisees that had adopted an encryption-based security measure would not have been affected. But one cybersecurity expert said that the list might not be comprehensive. "IHG has been offering its franchised properties a free examination by an outside computer forensic team," wrote Brian Krebs. "But not all property owners have been anxious to take the company up on that offer. "As a consequence, there may be more breached hotel locations yet to be added to the state look-up tool." Other hotel chains to have been struck by payment system hacks in recent years include Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental and Trump Hotels. The US has been slower to switch to a chip-and-pin system than many other countries, which makes it more difficult to carry out such attacks.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2017 / CoinQx Exchange LIMITED, a wholly owned subsidiary of FIRST BITCOIN CAPITAL CORP (OTC:BITCF or "Company", "We", "Us" or "Our") through its CEO filed for patent protection this week in order to move trillions of travel points into the cryptocurrency world. The reward points business for the travel industry alone is so staggering in size that according to (Maritz) $48 Billion worth of points and airline miles are classified as unredeemed. Already trillions of reward points have been issued and redeemed worldwide for all industries. In order to capitalize on this booming industry, our CEO, Greg Rubin, an inventor with several patents approved by the USPTO has filed on our behalf a provisional patent that is designed to grant protection from competitors placing rewards points on a blockchain. We have already issued billions of rewards points on the bitcoin blockchain to be redeemed by the future clients of a new travel agency that First Bitcoin is rolling out this month via www.BitClassTravel.com What makes our reward points unique is that they can be bought and sold in cryptocurrency markets. We anticipate that our competitors will find their travel agencies accepting our rewards tokens to compete. A secondary market could emerge for this new form of reward points as digital currencies. Complete details of the usages and crypto miles issued will soon be found at http://AIRmilesQX.com In addition to being the first public in the blockchain space, First Bitcoin has distinguished itself as a crypto leader capable of moving at lightning speed to roll out new endeavors so much so that our crypto reward tokens are already tradeable as altcoins on the OMNIDEX against some of the leading cryptocurrencies such as Tether, MaidSafeCoin, Omni, including all altcoins our subsidiary has issued on the Bitcoin Blockchain, to date. Many of these new mileage coins will be tradeable on our subsidiary cryptocurrency exchange, CoinQX.com, against more than 100 crypto and fiat currencies, including Bitcoin. A complete list and details of these reward tokens for airline miles will be released in an upcoming news release covering 100 of the largest airlines and top hotel chains. Many airlines offer frequent-flyer loyalty programs to encourage customers to accumulate "miles" which airline customers can redeem to purchase air travel or other rewards. Points, or miles earned though those programs are based on complex rules, like class of fare, distance, season or the amount paid. There are also many other ways to earn points. For example, credit card issuers partner with airlines and award loyalty points or miles based on customer's credit card usage. Points can be redeemed for air travel, ticket upgrades, booking hotels, car rentals, magazine subscriptions etc. Frequent-flyer program points are in essence a type of virtual currency, but unfortunately it was a one way process –people could purchase points with national currencies, but were not able to exchange back into those currencies. Airline miles programs go back to the early 70's when United Airlines began to reward loyal customers with points that could be accumulated and later could be used to pay for air travel. Their programs have evolved over the last 20 years, but it is not easy to use those programs.When travelers actually try to book a flight, they encounter major hurdles, like-blackout dates (days when award seats are limited or unavailable). Every airline program has its own policies, procedures, restrictions, etc. Also airlines and credit card issuers are constantly changing the rules and policies. Several Airlines, for example, recently increased the minimum number of miles needed to book some of their flights. Research published by COLLOQUY, a leading provider of loyalty marketing research in 2015 indicates that U.S. consumers hold 3.3 billion memberships in customer loyalty programs, a 26% increase over the number of memberships reported in COLLOQUY's prior census study in 2013. The 2015 Census shows that specialty store loyalty memberships now total 434 million, exceeding airline frequent flyer memberships (356 million) for the first time, placing second only to credit card reward programs, which account for 578 million memberships. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics, year over year air travel increased by 5.5% from 2015 to 2016. COLLOQUY survey found that a little more than half of Americans – 55% – have taken a flight for business or leisure purposes in the past two years. And three-fourths of respondents, 75%, said their most recent flight was within the past six months. Another noteworthy statistic is that 60% of frequent traveler miles issued today are not earned but instead purchased. Points accumulating in loyalty programs globally are considered by some as real currencies with increasing value that have attracted the attention of criminals, per Barry Kirk, vice president of Loyalty Solutions for Maritz Motivation Solutions. In the US alone, 3.3 billion loyalty program memberships have stored points and miles worth an estimated $48 billion, according to the Gartner Group. BLOCKCHAIN will CHANGE customer loyalty programs forever by giving more control to rewards owners and reducing fraud through the transparency of blockchain technologies. First Bitcoin Capital Corp trading on the OTC Markets as BITCF has developed a unique Blockchain based airline miles platform, allowing people to buy/exchange/trade/transfer miles without any restrictions, blackout days or other cumbersome rules that airlines impose on their programs.

WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PM Hotel Group, a leading, national hotel management company based in Washington, DC, announced today that it has assumed management of the historic, 217-room Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, Del. PM Hotel Group also will oversee a multi- million-dollar renovation of the hotel to include preserving historic aspects of the Four Diamond property and its signature Green Room restaurant. “The Hotel du Pont and our recently announced Canopy by Hilton Washington, D.C. | Bethesda North and Canopy by Hilton Portland | Pearl District further authenticate our expansion into the independent and luxury/boutique space,” said Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hotel Group. “We have a long and successful track record in this segment, dating back to 2002 when we operated the world-famous Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C. We will continue to pursue similar opportunities with iconic and historic hotels that offer truly unique experiences and amenities that cannot be replicated. The Hotel du Pont is one of the most acclaimed luxury hotels in the world, and it defines hospitality in the state of Delaware.” Opened in 1913, the Hotel du Pont has hosted U.S. presidents and other world leaders, first ladies, religious leaders, world-renowned musicians, artists and actors, professional athletes and innumerable tourists and business professionals.

The entire complex will undergo an extensive enhancement that will update and renovate the existing DuPont Building while adding additional retail, commercial and residential components. Located across the street from Rodney Square in downtown Wilmington, the hotel is within walking distance of the DuPont Theatre and Grand Opera House, Delaware State University Wilmington and Brown Park. The hotel conveniently is just a short drive from the Philadelphia International Airport and only minutes from Amtrak and Interstate 95. A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Historic Hotels of America, the hotel is home to the AAA Four-Diamond Award and Forbes Four-Star Award-winning Green Room, known for lavish design elements like fumed oak paneling, a coffered oak-beamed ceiling, gold chandeliers, richly textured draperies, Italian mosaics and original oil paintings. Guest rooms feature thoughtful touches like bathrobes and slippers, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi and wired internet access. “Downtown Wilmington is a growing and thriving area that continues to attract increased numbers of business and leisure travelers seeking unique experiences in vibrant locations that raise the bar on hospitality,” Bojanowski added. “With this growth comes an obvious demand for lodging, and the Hotel du Pont is a one-of-a-kind jewel in one of the most dynamic parts of town. Following the completion of the hotel’s renovation, we are confident the hotel will continue to be the destination of choice for discerning business and leisure travelers to the area.” PM Hotel Group was once again named a Top 20 Third-Party Hotel Management Company by Hotel Business magazine in 2017.

Midas Hospitality to Bring First Element by Westin to St. Louis Hotel to be built at current Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis site. St. Louis, MO, May 03, 2017 --( Owner Midas Forest Park, LLC, a subsidiary of Midas Hospitality, recently bought the current home of Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis (HFHSL) located at 3763 Forest Park Ave. The 1.5 acre property was purchased for $2.4 million to make way for the $25 million Element by Westin. Midas Hospitality will lease the non-profit organization space for up to one year while it relocates. The hotel concept encourages renewal through a nature-influenced environment and is constructed with an efficient use of space and sustainability in mind. The eight-story, 119,000-square-foot hotel will include 153 extended stay rooms and feature 10,000-square-foot retail space plus a rooftop lounge. The environmentally-responsible rooms will have oversized windows to allow natural light plus fully-equipped kitchens with spa-inspired bathrooms. The hotel will have an extensive fitness center, an all-natural saline pool, and a borrow-a-bike program for its guests. Element will be located directly across from the St. Louis Foundry redevelopment. It will back up to St. Louis University and be only three blocks from the Cortex Innovation District and one block from Ikea. Midas Hospitality will manage the hotel. The builder is MC Hotel Construction, a general contractor specializing in new hotel construction and renovations, which is the sister company of Midas Hospitality. The architecture firm is Gray Design. All three companies are based in St. Louis, Mo., and this is the first Element hotel built and managed by these businesses. Carrolton Bank provided the financing for the acquisition. “The vibrant midtown area is the perfect place for an environmentally-friendly Element by Westin,” said Midas Hospitality CEO David Robert. “We are excited to work with this growing community by providing extended stay lodging to the university campuses, innovation district, and medical community.” “We are delighted with the sale and what it will mean to our much needed work in the community. As good stewards of our organization’s assets, we were pleased to be able to take advantage of the strong commercial real estate market in the area,” said Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis CEO Kimberly McKinney. “For up to a year, we will be continuing our important work of building safe and affordable housing for hard working families from our current Forest Park Avenue location. We look forward to sharing more information in the future on our operations for our city Habitat ReStore, our construction warehouse and our administrative offices in a conveniently relocated space.” Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis (HFHSL) is a not-for-profit, ecumenical housing ministry working in partnership with individuals and communities of all faiths to improve housing conditions and provide safe, decent and affordable housing in St. Louis City and County.

Amadeus has credited its acquisition of Navitaire as contributing to a 14% upswing in revenue during 2016. The distribution and IT giant posted a €4.473 billion figure for full year, with EBITDA coming in at €1.7 billion over the same period – an increase of 16% year-on-year. The total number of passengers board through both the ALTEA platform and Navitaire system soared by 85% to 1.383 billion, mostly due to the addition of the latter service to the suite of Amadeus products. The company claims to have a 43.2% market share in travel agency bookings following a 6% increase to 534.9 million during 2016. CEO and president Luis Maroto says he expects Amadeus a “trend of new contracts we have seen so far in 2017”, coupled with a moderate pick-up in the wider global economy, will see it forecast a “solid financial year” for the next 12 months. “The solid performance in the distribution segment was also supported by new contracts of our merchandising solutions. “At the end of last year, 66% of the global bookings made through the Amadeus system were eligible to carry a merchandising item. “More than 120 airlines had contracts for Amadeus Airlines Ancillary Services by the end 2016, of which more than 90 had implemented the solutions by the close of the year.” The company’s distribution business brought in €2.925 billion during 2016 – a 6.8% climb on the previous year. On a region-by-region basis, only central, eastern and southern Europe saw a decline in travel agency bookings, falling by 2.5% from 2015 to 44.5 million. The largest region, Western Europe, increased by 3.7% to 202.1 million and North America hit 90.8 million after a 5.7% increase. Interestingly, Amadeus says it has identified a number of sectors as growth opportunities. Alongside existing efforts in the areas of merchandising and low-cost carriers, “destination content” (such as tours and activities) and ground transportation were both signalled as ways of expanding the company. The first implementation of its major IHG project is due to start by the end of this year, Maroto says. Talking to analysts on the earnings calls, Maroto says it sees hospitality reservation platforms as another key strategy item and is talking to other chains. The company’s fledgling payments business comes under the same umbrella of growth opportunities outside of the core distribution and airline IT segments of the business. Regarding the $830 million acquisition of Navitaire, Amadeus says:
