BestRates are Just Round the Corner

Best Western International, THE WORLD`S LARGEST HOTEL CHAIN® is providing some great values for guests this fall. The BestRates(tm) promotion offers savings of up to 50 percent at select properties.

BestRates offers value-priced lodging at participating hotels throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.  The promotion kicks off Oct. 7 and continues until Dec. 22, 2002.  However, many properties continue to offer BestRates year-round, so be certain to ask for BestRates when making a reservation.

BestRates range up to 50 percent off regular rates at select destinations.  Some examples include $69 in Chicago; $39 in Orlando, Fla.; $46 CDN in Vancouver, British Columbia; $30 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.; $65 in St. Croix, USVI and $55 in Los Angeles.

“Frequent travelers will find these rates even more appealing because Best Western Gold Crown Club International points or airline miles can be earned for all stays booked under BestRates,” explains Bob Gilbert, vice president of Worldwide Marketing and Sales.  “Bottom line, whether you are traveling for business, for the holidays or for a short break, BestRates simply makes your trip more rewarding.”

To reserve these special rates, customers can book online at or call (800) WESTERN.  When calling, mention the BestRates program. When booking online, look for rooms designated as BestRates.  Reservations for the BestRates promotion can also be made by contacting any travel professional. These rates are subject to availability at participating Best Western hotels.


This promotion is supported by the largest BestRates print advertising campaign to date. Numerous full-page color ads will appear in USA Today and Canada`s Globe and Mail.  The ads will focus on the various types of travelers who can use BestRates.  In addition, a number of ads will be dedicated to Best Requests, the 16 value-added amenities and services that are available at any hotel in North America.
