Joining

If you’re considering joining Best Western, enquire now and let’s start the discussion. We’re interested in learning your hotel’s business plans, strengths, opportunities and goals to assess its suitability for joining Best Western Australasia.

New Members might ideally be located in markets which generate new or different business to the network and where Best Western doesn’t currently have adequate representation, given the market size, segments, trends and competition.

The Fees

Membership fees are surprisingly low, with fees about one-third to one-half of other major lodging chains and channels. Annual fees are tied to the number of hotel rooms and hotel type – not to a percentage of gross rooms, F&B and onsite revenue. Booking fees apply per reservation and are one of the lowest available commission rates across the industry.

For new members, applicable fees are discussed prior to joining and clearly outlined within proposals and agreements.

Contracts

We offer an initial membership contract term of three years and then rolling annual renewals – not the long-term lock-in common with other chains. Owners enjoy the benefits of branded services, while maintaining decision making flexibility.

Across the world, 99% of our Members renew their agreements annually. Unlike other hotel brands, we’re not for profit. We re-invest earnings into strengthening the brand, promoting individual hotels and increasing revenue contributions.

Note – Along with membership agreements, Best Western Australasia offers a variety of services for member hotels. For additional support, ask about designs, fit-outs, revenue maximisation, turnaround support and management services.
