Details: The compromised information includes "names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passport numbers, and travel details" for two-thirds of those affected, according to the WSJ. And Marriott couldn't definitively state that card payment information hadn't been stolen as well, though it noted that information is usually encrypted.
