As soon as I got my driver’s license when I turned 16, my parents presented me with a AAA card. The piece of mind that comes with having that membership was not only great for me – it was also comforting form my parents. Many, many years later, I still am a faithful AAA member. Although I still appreciate the roadside and battery assistance, I also really love having the travel benefits as well. Did you know that AAA is the largest leisure travel organization in North America? When my husband and I road tripped from Texas to Massachusetts, we relied on AAA discounts and benefits, as well as their popular TripTik travel planner. Even when we aren’t road tripping, I love looking at AAA’s Diamond Rating System for hotels and restaurants – it is a great independent rating system to help evaluate choices. Of course, travel agents are also offered in many of the more than 1,000 accredited, full-service AAA agency offices. A AAA travel agent booked our honeymoon, and his expertise really helped in booking the best locations and hotels for our trip.
One of those hotels, located on San Francisco’s Fisherman Wharf in California, was the Tuscan Hotel, Best Western Plus location. One of the things I love about the Best Western brand is how distinct and unique to the specific area each hotel is. Rather than offering the same style in each location, the more than 4,000 Best Western hotels in over 100 countries and territories worldwide are all difference and reflect the charm of the individual areas. There are three types of hotels – the Best Western, the Best Western Plus, and the Best Western Premier, so you are sure to find a location that fits your budget and interests.
