Best Western Hobart

Best Western has signed two new hotels in Tasmania.

The hotels in Hobart and Launceston were formerly operated by Accor and will be branded as the Best Western Hobart and Best Western Plus Launceston.

The hotels take Best Western’s total number of Tasmanian properties to seven, with several more Tasmanian hotels to join in the future, according to the company.

Rob Anderson, Best Western Australasia Chief Executive said the hotels are ideally located in the heart of each city’s CBD precincts and will undergo a series of refurbishments.

“We’re thrilled to welcome these two hotels in Hobart and Launceston to our growing hotel family,” Anderson said.

“The Best Western Hobart has a large refresh planned, with all 140 guest rooms to receive a soft refurbishment and its eight meetings and events spaces to be completely refurbished and due for completion in the second half of 2013.

“We will also add new in-room furnishings and amenities at the 116-room Best Western Plus Launceston, with these refurbishments planned to begin as early as next week.

“Both hotels already have modern amenities and facilities so we will look to mainly improve the current onsite restaurants and dining areas; update the conference facilities and ensure the most up to date WiFi services and in-room services are available in both hotels.”
