Best Western is going full steam ahead in 2014 across Mexico and Central and South America, with 29 hotels in the 2014-15 pipeline. South America is proving to be the hottest area for hotel development due mostly to Brazil hosting both the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
According to Breaking Travel News, "The brand currently has 16 hotels operating in Brazil and is working with a development partner Incortel to add 30 new properties in the next five years."
Best Western is looking to add between two and four new construction projects annually in Colombia through 2019. Other development spots include Chile and Peru.
