Soldiers make a lot of sacrifices for our country. Be it long deployments, additional training or temporary orders, there are times where they are away from their homes, families and friends. IHG Army Hotels understands the military lifestyle and the unique challenges it brings. That’s why when the U.S. Army established the Privatization of Army Lodging program, or PAL, we were honored to be invited to partner with leading international property and infrastructure group, Lendlease to serve those who are proud to put their lives on the line for America. Our mission is to show our respect for these brave Soldiers by providing a superior stay experience for them, their families and guests when they’re away from home — because military personnel can defend our nation’s freedom to their best abilities when they are not worried about their families, their comfort or their families’ comfort.
We are committed and dedicated to serving the military community that serves our nation so selflessly. In order to continue to fulfill the goals of the PAL program, we are renovating and revitalizing all our hotels on 40 military installations to provide a consumer-grade hotel experience that is customized to meet the unique needs of military travelers. In fact, we’re committing to reinvest $39 of every $100 spent right back into our existing hotels – up to $7.6 billion over the next 50 years – to continue to enhance each stay experience. Even more, while these enhancements and new projects continue to dramatically improve these military stay experiences, we are still able to offer highly competitive rates that average 75% of GSA per diem.
