BW Premier Collection hotel opens in Nagasaki, Japan

Best Western Hotels & Resorts has launched in Japan its newest upscale brand, BW Premier Collection. The former Best Western Premier Hotel Nagasaki relaunched in March as the BW Premier Collection Hotel Nagasaki, making it the brand’s first location in Japan and the first operational BW Premier Collection property in Asia. 

The hotel will still be available for booking via all of Best Western’s distribution channels, and members of Best Western Rewards, the company’s popular loyalty program, will continue to earn points on their stays. In fact, the only changes guests will notice are new branding and elevated levels of service and comfort.

“This hotel has always been one of our most highly rated properties in Japan, and we are delighted that it has now become Asia’s first operational BW Premier Collection hotel,” Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s managing director of International Operations – Asia said in a statement.
