Looks like they've did away with any crown motif for the first time in my life.

Here's the Logopedia page for Best Western:
http://logos.wikia.com/wiki/Best_Western

It's the first time the logo has had no crown since before 1962.

The BW icon is very strange, looks like a pill... a logo made for a pharmaceutical company...

I would have kept the crown.....

Does this mean Best Western is preparing to enter the medical business?

I agree. They should've designed a better logo, which incorporates a crown into its design motif. They missed their mark on this one.

Simpsons do make fun of stores...one time they had a gun store called Blood,Bath and Beyond. And Wall Mart, Art gallery...and then they need to get something to get rid of rats which was called 'PEST BYE'

I'd suspect that they can make it fit within the existing sign shape/size, just without the border line going around it?

Yeah, that's actually good. They can just replace the pylon on the old sign instead of making a brand new one and then a labelscar from the older one. But that doesn't sound too bad lol
