IHG & Lendlease Working Better Together
Designed to revitalize on-post temporary lodging accommodations, the Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) program leverages private sector best practices and commercial standards to deliver hotel-quality stay experiences catered specifically to meet the needs of military service members, families, and guests. As a leading international property and infrastructure group, Lendlease brings extensive expertise to the construction of new build Candlewood Suites®, Staybridge Suites®, and Avid® hotels as well as formative transformations of existing on-post buildings into Holiday Inn Express® and Historia Collection™ hotels. As one of the largest hotel companies in the world, InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG), brings industry-leading hotel operations and service experience to offer more than just a bed to sleep in, but a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for our guests when away from home and family.
IHG and Lendlease are honored to have been selected by the U.S Army, in 2009, as the hotel operator and developer of their 40 lodging locations, previously operated by Army Lodging. Bringing industry-leading knowledge from both the hotel construction and hotel operation sides, we are working together to build a haven for the military and those close to them. Through our experience with the PAL program, we understand the complexities of being on post, work hard to create an environment that exemplifies respect and knowledge, and provide a sense of community to each and every one of our guests.
