Yesterday I received my shiny new Best Western Diamond Elite Reward Card in the mail thanks to their No Catch Status Match. Although I know the benefits on paper, I have never stayed at a Best Western. But im wondering from those who like or frequent the chain, why Best Western, as opposed to a chain like the Marriott? The promotions do not seem to be as good, but the prices are better. Are you sacrificing something for those prices? What about upgrades as Diamond Elite? Any success stories? I appreciate your feedback.
