IHG Army Hotels is a collection of private-sector hotels located on Army installations and Joint Bases throughout the U.S. It is the result of a partnership between InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Lend Lease Group (US) Public Partnerships. This partnership was formed in response to the Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) program by the United States Army. The Army’s request for qualifications (RFQ) sought to fulfill specific requirements that included improving the quality of on-post lodgings throughout the U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. This RFQ sought entities with experience in the management of room inventory and hotel service, expertise in construction, and financing experience relating to the upgrades and renovations of existing on-post Army lodgings.[1] U.S. Army awarded the PAL program to Lend Lease (US) with a 50-year lease deal, and IHG, with a 25-year management agreement with options to extend.[2] As part of the RFP agreement, these hotels provide lodging to service members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, government and civilian contractors, military families, veterans, civilians and retirees. There are 76 IHG-branded hotels with about 11,600 rooms located on Army bases in the U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.[3]

History

After being awarded the PAL program in 2006, IHG Army Hotels began the first phase of the PAL takeover in 2009 with hotels on 10 posts. During this time, on-post lodgings underwent upgrades, renovations, and or new builds. IHG Army Hotels transformed these lodgings to meet basic standards for guests that included improved amenities, such as complimentary breakfast and wireless Internet.[4] Additional amenities at IHG Army Hotels were designed to cater to military travelers that include weekly barbecues, complimentary on-post shuttle services, and free laundry facilities.[5] In 2010, the first on-post Holiday Inn Express opened on Fort Polk, Louisiana.[6] In 2011, 11 additional posts were added under IHG Army Hotels purview as part of the PAL program;[7] with the addition of 18 posts in 2013.[8] As of 2014, IHG Army Hotels operate upgraded and renovated military lodgings, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, and Candlewood Suites on 41 Army posts.
