Got the winter blues? I sure do! After all the hubbub of the holidays, January can feel so humdrum. Scrape the frost off your suitcase and warm up with a little winter vacation! Whether it’s a toasty tropical getaway or a hometown staycation you seek, Best Western boasts over 4,000 hotels in over 100 countries, so you’re sure to find the right place to lay your travel-weary head on your next vacation. To give you a little winter travel incentive, Best Western and AAA have teamed up to offer discounts and rewards to vacationers.

Why Best Western

Best Western offers three tiers of hotels to meet travelers’ needs and desires. Best Western offers a clean and comfy stay. Best Western Plus provides slightly swankier vacation options, with amenities like on-site fitness rooms and in-room mini fridges (so convenient for families!). Best Western Premier is for those who want a more luxurious experience, with upscale decor and grounds plus personalized service. All Best Western hotels offer free high-speed Internet service…something I wish all hotel brands would offer!

    I have to admit, I’ve never paired up beautiful hotels with Best Western, but those photos don’t look too bad, the one in Chicago covered in Ivy is just gorgeous. I might just have to go look and see more inside photos, and possibly plan a trip back to the USA!

    Living in Canada, I would totally love to escape the winter blues. We try to arrange for a winter holiday every year in order to get some vitamin D.

  3. It’s nearly spring here on the west coast, but I could still use some warm temperatures right about now!

  4. Lisa Goodmurphy says

    I had no idea that Best Western had more upscale options – will have to consider the chain the next time I’m booking a hotel stay!

  5. Best Western has some great properties. I am not an AAA member, but this sounds like a great deal. I’ll have to see if I can combine Best Western rewards, AAA and Connexion World Travel cash back all in the same transaction. Thanks for the good info.
