Who says 13 has to be an unlucky number? This year marks the 13th anniversary of IHG® Army Hotels. Since 2009, it’s been our honor to serve you at 40 Army posts across the U.S. Although we’ve been in business 13 years, our journey actually started in 2003 when the Army established a program to privatize its lodging properties through the Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL).
Since then, we’ve reinvested into transforming aging, run-down properties into clean, modern hotels that offer all the amenities of off post hotels and are specifically designed to cater to our military guests.
Our latest hotel renovations are underway at IHG Army Hotels on Fort Stewart and are scheduled to be completed in September.
We’re also excited to announce that new construction is nearing completion on our Candlewood Suites® on Aberdeen Proving Ground. Featuring full kitchens, fitness centers, full daily hot breakfast and other amenities, Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites are ideal for families traveling for PCS and service members on long-term official business. Look for our all-suites hotels in 15 different posts and growing!
Our ongoing investment in hotel properties not only improves the lives of military members and their families, it also means significant savings to the Army. Since the PAL program was established, the Army is saving a projected 85 million dollars a year with an estimated savings of 4.3 billion dollars over the life of the program.
We’ve accomplished a lot in our 13 years, but we continue to look for new ways to improve our guest experience. With that in mind, IHG recently upgraded our loyalty program to IHG One Rewards. Guests can now enjoy more choices and bigger perks at all hotels worldwide.

Service has always been our mission at IHG Army Hotels and we thank you for choosing to stay with us over the last 13 years. Here’s to another one! We hope to see you soon.
