Top-Ranked, Rich Rewards
BWHR is committed to providing travelers with one of the richest rewards programs in the industry, with enhanced point earning opportunities and perks. BWHR is the only major hotel chain to offer a loyalty program whose rewards points do not expire due to account inactivity, and members can now earn gift cards redeemable with popular shopping, entertainment, gas, and airline partners. BWR members earn points with each stay that can be redeemed for free nights at any Best Western-branded hotel worldwide, with no blackout dates. Members also have access to special rates of up to 10 percent off every night.
Instant Enrollment, Instant Rewards
As part of the BWR refresh, members are given instant rewards and gratification on every stay. Additionally, the Status Match…No Catch® program allows members to instantly have their status matched with other hotel loyalty programs upon enrollment.
Elite Members, Elite Rewards
In addition to enjoying the perks and benefits of BWR, elite members also receive elite rewards. Upon arrival elite members are given a choice of a “Thank You” gift or bonus points. A digital membership card enables BWR members to easily access their membership number, point balance, current tier level and exclusive deals and offers. These new benefits let travelers maximize their stays across all Best Western brands.
BWR has emerged as an award-winning powerhouse in recent years, and this seventh consecutive recognition by U.S. News & World Report is a welcomed addition to the brand’s award winning track record.
U.S. News & World Report identifies the top hotel rewards programs each year using a methodology that weighs five components: network size, property diversity, geographic coverage, added benefits and ease of earning a free night.
