Best Western Hotels In The Best Light

Written by Charlie

The other day, I happened upon a commercial that was already going and was very surprised when I saw which hotel chain the commercial was for. It was for the current Best Western promotion of Stay 2 Times for a reward and highlighted the three separate categories/divisions of Best Western – Best Western, Best Western Plus, and Best Western Premier.

I have stayed at many Best Western hotels in my life but I have never stayed at one of their Best Western Premier-branded hotels. In fact, I have never stayed at a Plus hotel. When I saw the brief video clip of a Best Wester Premier hotel, I could not believe it! It was nothing like the Best Westerns that I am used to!

I know hotels always do a great job with presentation and lighting for their hotel room photos and such, but doesn’t the video of the Best Western hotels (specifically the Premier) really look good?

Have you stayed at a Best Western Premier hotel before? To what brand/sub-brand of hotels would you compare it to?

  • BW has Premier hotels and a separate grouping like Marriott’s Autograph Collection. There are Premier hotels in many cities including Little Rock, Arkansas that are very nice.
