BEST WESTERN ENTERS SOVIET STATES WITH HOTELS IN RUSSIA, LITHUANIA

 PHOENIX, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/-- Best Western International continued its steady international expansion today with the announcement of its first hotels in the former Soviet Union. The addition of Russia and Lithuania extends Best Western's global system to 51 countries.
 Located in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Best Western Hotel Neptun offers 60 rooms just minutes from the main street, Nevsky Prospakt. The three-star hotel is located in the heart of the city's historic, commercial and shopping areas.
 In Moscow, the 120-room Best Western Hotel Tverskaya is under construction. Scheduled to open in January 1995, the Tverskaya is located on a 14th century boulevard leading to the heart of the capital city, approximately one mile from Red Square. It will be operated by Santa Fe Management Group, a San Diego-based management company that also operates Best Western hotels in San Diego and Santa Monica, Calif.
 In Vilnius, Lithuania, the 104-room Best Western Hotel Karolina appeals to business travelers, with an array of conference rooms and business services. A three-star hotel, the Karolina is just 10 minutes from historic Old Vilnius.
 "Positioning Best Western in Eastern Europe is an important step in our strategy of establishing brand recognition in the developing markets of the world," says Ronald A. Evans, president and chief executive officer of Best Western International. "The people of these emerging nations are rapidly discovering that one of the great freedoms is the freedom to travel. They are also discovering the positive impact travel and tourism can have on their economy. Best Western will be part of that economy as they develop the infrastructure necessary to exploit the economic opportunities offered by tourism."
 Best Western also recently announced continued expansion in South America, with the addition of its first hotel in Chile.
