Best Western It's Personal

Welcome to It’s Personal

I’ve always believed there is something uniquely personal about hospitality that compels us to engage one another in conversation. It’s Personal is a space where I will share my experiences and my perspectives on topics that impact all of us in travel. At Best Western, I’m privileged to work alongside some of the brightest professionals in our industry, so this blog will include their voices too. Together, we’ll create a vibrant and interactive conversation.

– David Kong, President and CEO
