Best Western

Best Western is one of the larger and more moderately price hotel chains found throughout the United States. If your employer wants you to stick with one chain, and keep the costs to a minimum, Best Western is worth a look for you. The hotel offers special corporate rates for larger clients, which may is certainly attractive to companies with a large fleet of business travelers. The Gold Crown Club International is the frequent guest program offered by Best Western, and it sure sounds fancy. But throw in “gold” and “international” and pretty much anything can sound fancy.

Earning Points:

The Gold Crown Club offers you several ways to earn points. Members earn a hefty 10 points per dollar spent for qualified hotel stays. If you’re more of an airline miles collector, you’ll earn 250 miles per stay. That’s a lot less than some hotels, but it is pretty competitive for a lower priced chain.

Redeem Points:

Best Western offers guests the ability to book rewards stays with no blackout dates. Unlike most airline programs these days, your points will never expire.
