FedRooms hotelier partners offer some great military and veteran programs.
Hoteliers Support Veterans
While we celebrate our active duty military and veterans on a special day each November, many hotel brands offer year-round discounts for those who have served our country. A number of hotels and brands are offering more than just discounts this year as well, extending jobs, donations and more to military and veteran members of the community.
Below is a quick list of some the major hotel chains offering some great military and veteran programs.
Hilton’s founder, Conrad Hilton, was a US Army Veteran whose legacy is deeply ingrained in the brand’s values. In 2013, Hilton launched Operation: Opportunity, with a mission to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses by 2018. Hilton reached that goal, and has now raised the target to 20,000 hires.
Choice Hotels offers incentives throughout the year to support veterans in need. Currently, those who book rooms in advance using the “Pay Now and Save” rate will be providing a free meal to a current member of the military or veteran. Choice also announced a partnership with Operation Homefront in 2018, donating 20 million Choice Privileges loyalty points to enable veterans and service members to connect with their family and friends.
Just last month, Hyatt announced a new and improved initiative focused on military travelers that includes a larger discount on rooms and a new rate for U.S. veterans. Hyatt is also pushing to increase veteran hires and aid them in the job placement process. In addition, the hotel brand has made a commitment to seek out and support veteran-owned businesses throughout the country.
IHG hotels offer a competitive leisure rate for members of the military and veterans, in addition to offering IHG Army Hotels that are directly on-post for the convenience of the travelers. IHG also makes a great effort to employ veterans, and offers a unique job portal for veterans looking for a position with the company.
For active duty service members, veterans or military spouses, La Quinta offers its own military rewards program for leisure travel. In addition to these lower rates, veterans, spouses or military caregivers are eligible for flexible career options with La Quinta including transferable careers. As a member of the Coalition for Veteran Owned Businesses, La Quinta is proud to support veterans in all aspects of their business.
We want to thank our hotel partners for all that they do to support our veterans and help them reconnect with their families and communities.
