Best Western Hotels & Resorts

Member-Owner Benefits

As a membership association our hotels are independently owned and operated, and each member-owner has a voice in the operation of the company. Because Best Western believes independent hotel owners that unite to promote their properties can increase profitability. Our members maintain their independence while locking in all the advantages of the world's largest lodging affiliation, including:

  • A powerful global brand backed by powerful, full-service support
  • A fee structure that lets owners keep more of their revenue
  • The most competitive fees among leading brands
  • Shorter contract terms than the industry norm
  • A voice in day-to-day initiatives and future direction of the company
  • Worldwide reservations/online booking channels
  • Global, national and regional marketing services
  • The mass buying and bargaining power of thousands of hoteliers

Best Western membership offers our member-owners stability and consistency, rarities in today's world of aggressive takeovers and buyouts. Best Western has never been bought out, and thanks to our structure, we never will be. Offering that safety to our investors is important to us.
