What font is used in the Best Western Hotels logo?
I'm interested in making a joke t-shirt for a friend that changes the text on the "Best Western" logo. Does anyone know what font that is (pictured below), or what font most closely simulates it?
It's custom designed - the neat joins between B and W, and s and t didn't happen by accident - but looks to be based on ITC Century Std Bold Condensed.
Mockup of 'Best Western' text sample - you might need to click into one of the controls to get it to display correctly.
Unfortunately this image didn't work very well with WhatTheFont, I did a little adjusting to the image and passed it through again.
Unfortunately, I got no perfect matches, but here are some very similar fonts:
To the untrained eye, and without any comparison, I don't think anyone could tell the difference.
