Best Western International has 56 hotel locations in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg. The number of Best Western hotels in these three countries is comparable to the total number of hotels in Club Carlson, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott and Starwood combined.
This article includes my Loyalty Traveler Google Maps of 56 Best Western Hotels in the Benelux countries as of December 2017.
Best Western Rewards free night using points rates would be a desirable feature, but that is impractical given seasonal changes and potentially large shifts in BWR points rates for these hotels.
There are more Best Western Hotels in several European countries like France (279), Germany (186) and Italy (150) than the combined total number of hotels in all other US-based hotel chains. Accor Hotels has an edge in number of hotels for some countries in Europe, especially France.
The large number of international properties is a major competitive advantage of Best Western in Europe.
