Army Hotels Supporting Families Stuck in Stop Movement Order
Posted on Apr 22, 2020 06:14 pm
IHG Army Hotels continues operating its facilities at 40 installations and is working with base leaders to support military families affected by the Pentagon’s stop movement order, according to a press release.
Servicemembers awaiting transportation to their new permanent duty station can present their PCS orders when they check in and receive a daily room rate equal to their basic housing allowance.
“During these uncertain and challenging times, the dedication of the men and women in uniform is evident – and we appreciate their service,” said Elie Maalouf, head of IHG Americas. “Our teams at IHG Army Hotels, which include many veterans and military family members, understand the stress that COVID-19 has created and are committed to delivering the best care and true hospitality that members of the military deserve.”
Some hotel staff are helping produce face masks, and a fundraising effort helped IHG Army Hotels donate to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which builds mortgage-free smart homes for injured veterans and first responders.
At Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, and Fort Wainwright, Alaska, staff arranged a “socially distant” visit from the Easter Bunny with baskets for children staying in the facilities.
