Best Western was founded in 1946 by M.K. Guertin, a California-based hotelier with 23 years of experience in the lodging industry. His revolutionary business agenda — to provide marketing and supply-side support while giving owners maximum flexibility to address local demand — has impacted hoteliers and guests alike. The model is directly responsible for Best Western's broad and rich property portfolio; whether a castle or a cabin, each Best Western is committed to providing a comfortable and reliable experience to business and leisure travelers.
