Best Western 'On Sale' for 10 Hours This Week

    PHOENIX, Feb. 9 /CNW/ -- Travelers on the hunt for bargains will be
awarded with the season's best deals to more than 1,200 Best Western hotels in
beach-front, romantic and snow destinations, bookable only through the hotel
chain's Web site,, the week of February 9, 2009, the
World's Largest Hotel Chain announced today.


    From Monday, February 9 through Friday, February 13, Best Western will
post destinations and specific travel deals each day to its Web site, along
with a "countdown to savings" clock to alert visitors when the limited,
two-hour window to book designated travel through the Best Western Web site
will begin.

    On Monday, visitors will be greeted with offers to popular ski
destinations and resorts.  On Tuesday, Best Western will feature deals to
romantic hot-spots, such as Napa, Savannah and Nashville.  Wednesday,
travelers will have a choice of escaping winter weather for warmer
destinations, including Honolulu, San Diego, Scottsdale and Orlando, and on
Thursday, to favorite U.S. cities, including New York, San Francisco and Los
Angeles.  Finally, on Friday, travelers will be offered a "grab bag" of
destinations, which includes other top cities in North America.

    "While traveling is fun and adventurous, so can be the experience of
finding a great deal online at some of the hottest destinations in North
America," said Dorothy Dowling, Best Western's senior vice president of
marketing and sales.

    For those who visit the site outside of the "countdown to savings" daily
promotion, a message will advise when the next offer will be available.

    These special Internet-only deals are based on hotel availability.  To
view them, guests can visit beginning February
9.  Reservations booked through the Countdown will be prepaid, though guests
can cancel and obtain refunds seven or more days prior to arrival.
