By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KY3) If you stayed at a Holiday Inn hotel late last year, check your credit card statements.

Intercontinental Hotels Group, which owns the Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Candlewood Suites brands, says more than 1,200 of its hotels were infected with malware that stole customer credit and debit card information. The data breach happened between September 29, 2016 and December 29, 2016.

IHG did not offer a full list of hotels affected by the malware, but established a website where customers can search hotels by city and state.

Two Springfield hotels - the Candlewood Suites locations at 1920 E. Kerr and 1035 E. Republic Road are listed as being affected by the malware.

Other hotels in Branson, Lebanon, St. Robert, Marshfield, are also included, along with locations in Rogers, Mountain Home and Fayetteville, Ark.

IHG suggests that anyone who stayed at one of its properties during the time period the malware was present review their card statements for any unauthorized activity and report the charges to the credit card issuer.
