Best Western Rewards offers elite level matching. Members who have elite status in other hotel loyalty programs can get matching status in Best Western Rewards. So if you are a top-tier member in any hotel program you will receive top-tier in Best Western Rewards–and the same goes for all membership levels. You simply request an elite match by emailing Best Western customer service at BWRelite@bestwestern.com or by calling (800) 237-8483. You must provide proof of elite program membership in another hotel program. Gold, Platinum and Diamond Elite members of Best Western Rewards receive elite bonus points (10 percent, 15 percent and 30 percent, respectively) and Platinum and Diamond members also receive free room upgrades, when available, and early check-in and late check-out privileges, when available.
