The info.starwoodhotels.com site also states that the breach was in the Starwood guest reservation database. Some countries like the UK require hotels to take down passport information and retain it for a minimum of 12 months (Source). This is actually common in a lot of the EU.

So even if the 3TA didn't send passport info to Starwood/Marriott or the Marriott.com/Starwoodhotels.com sites didn't have the passport info saved - if you stayed at Starwood hotels in the affected period, it may have been added to the reservation record by the front desk clerk anyways.
