The Best Western Hotel chain has been operating for over fifty years, having celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1996.
Founded in 1946 by Guertin, who already had over 20 years of experience within the hotel industry, the chain continues to blossom and evolve today. Welcoming guests from all around the globe, it has a particularly strong presence in the United States.
