Best Western Grand Canyon Squire Inn in Arizona Earns the BEST WESTERN
PREMIER Descriptor Signifying the Brand's Most Refined Amenities and Comfort

Grand Canyon, AZ (December 6, 2011) - The former BEST WESTERN Grand Canyon Squire Inn is now the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Grand Canyon Squire Inn, after earning the “BEST WESTERN PREMIER” descriptor from the World’s Biggest Hotel FamilySM. The descriptors, launched in 2010, give Best Western hotels the opportunity to earn the “BEST WESTERN PLUS®” or “BEST WESTERN PREMIER” designation by meeting specific design and amenity guidelines. “BEST WESTERN PREMIER” represents an upscale hotel with a refined level of comfort and courtesy for business and leisure travelers.

“No two Best Western hotels are alike, so these new descriptors will help our guests choose the right hotel for their needs from among the brand’s 2,200 North American properties,” said David Kong, Best Western International president and CEO. “Hotels that earn the ‘Premier’ descriptor typically have a 3-plus Diamond rating from AAA, and have a distinct and memorable style, often influenced by their local region.”

With 250 guestrooms and personalized guest services such as Park Passes upon check-in and a scenic air tour of the Grand Canyon, the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Grand Canyon Squire Inn is an ideal place to stay, whether for relaxing vacation or for an important business meeting. The hotel is located at the entrance to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, at 74 State Route 64.

“Our team has worked hard to provide a hotel experience eligible for the ‘Best Western Premier’ designation,” said Mr. Greg Bryan, general manager of the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Grand Canyon Squire Inn. “We offer the great service and value that Best Western is known for, with a truly upscale experience at the incomparable Grand Canyon.”
