(Bangkok – October 25, 2017) Best Western® Hotels & Resorts is celebrating this week after being named “Asia’s Best Mid-Range Hotel Chain” in Travel Weekly Asia’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards.
Voted for by the readers of Travel Weekly Asia – one of the largest travel trade publications in the Asia Pacific region – Best Western has now won the title for the third consecutive year.
The award was presented to Best Western at an award ceremony, which took place in Singapore on Monday, October 23, 2017.
Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ Managing Director of International Operations – Asia, said he was delighted to have won the award for the third time in a row.
“We’re incredibly proud of this achievement; to have been named as Asia’s Best Mid-Range Hotel Chain for three consecutive years is a great honor,” Berrivin said. “The readers of Travel Weekly Asia represent the region’s travel trade, so it is incredibly gratifying to know that the Best Western brand is resonating strongly with so many of our highly-respected industry partners. We would like to thank Travel Weekly Asia and their readers for this award, and for their continued support.”
“In recent years, Best Western has undertaken a major international expansion strategy, including the launch of several new brand concepts and exciting new hotels in Asia. We will continue to set the bar for innovative, industry-leading midscale accommodation across the region in future,” he added.
Winning its third consecutive Travel Weekly Asia Reader’s Choice Award continues Best Western’s recent winning streak, as last month the hotel group was named Asia’s “Best Mid-Range Hotel Brand” at the TTG Travel Awards for the 11th year in a row.
