Best Western grows to 135 hotels in Sweden

Best Western, after acquiring 59 Sweden Hotels in a deal closed last week, becomes Sweden’s largest hotel chain brand with 135 properties.  There is generally a lag time between hotel acquisition and integration into the hotel loyalty program. These properties may take several weeks or even months before they are integrated into Best Western Rewards for earning and redeeming points.

Sweden Hotel Esplanade Stockholm

Hotel Esplanade Stockholm is one of two additional hotels added in Best Western’s existing portfolio of 8 Stockholm hotels.

This hotel list from Sweden Hotels website shows 60 properties in Sweden for the chain. Not sure where the hotel list discrepancy exists with news reports stating 59 hotels acquired in this deal.

In the past, I stated Best Western is one of the major hotel chain brands to keep in mind when traveling to Scandinavia. This acquisition puts Best Western ahead of Nordic Choice Hotels in Sweden with about 80 hotels.

Best Western Rewards will be an even more useful hotel loyalty program for travel in Sweden with a multiple locations advantage over Choice Hotels and Choice Privileges. Also, members of Choice Privileges cannot earn points for paid stays. Choice Privileges members can only redeem points for Nordic Choice Hotels in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Lithuania and Latvia. Nordic Choice Club membership is required to earn points in Scandinavia in a separately run program with different earn and redemption charts.

The acquisition of Sweden Hotels by Best Western offers another major chain with numerous hotel locations in Sweden for U.S. based and global hotel loyalty program members wishing to earn and redeem points in Best Western Rewards.
