ATLANTA, GA—InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will expand its portfolio of IHG Army Hotels, adding 18 U.S. Military installations. In total, there will be 76 hotels and more than 11,000 guestrooms on 39 U.S. Military installations upon completion.
IHG is the exclusive hotel manager and operator of on-post lodging under the Department of the Army’s Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) program. The PAL program joins together IHG with the U.S. Army and Lend Lease, a public/private community development, as the exclusive asset manager, developer and design builder to deliver on-post lodging for service members, their families and all government travelers.
According to the company, existing lodging facilities being converted or retro-fitted under the PAL program will join the Holiday Inn Express brand. In addition, IHG will introduce its all-suite, extended stay Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites brands soon.
