Best Western adds 8 hotels to German portfolio

It's been a busy year for Best Western Hotels & Resorts. In the last few months alone, the company launched a new website and virtual reality tours, started a “white label” franchise model brand (SureStay Hotels) and signed the largest-ever multi-hotel agreement in the company’s 70-year history. (The signing of an agreement with real estate developer A.D. Houses Co. will open four Best Western Plus hotels in resort destinations across Thailand.)

As 2016 draws to an end, the company is growing its German footprint with several new properties. 

In September, three former Balladins hotels in Mannheim, Sindelfingen and Neu-Isenburg joined the brand. Five further hotels in Troisdorf, Dortmund, Bremen, Braunschweig and Peineall—managed by the GCH Hotel Group based in Berlin/Germany—will follow suit by the end of the year. The eight new hotels will add 1,023 rooms to the company’s portfolio in the country. By January, Best Western will have 205 hotels and more than 20,300 rooms open and operating across Germany.
