IHG Army Hotels, Lendlease open second phase of Candlewood Suites on Fort Jackson
IHG Army Hotels and Lendlease have opened the second new Candlewood Suites on Fort Jackson—their 15th Candlewood Suites hotel in the portfolio made possible through Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL). The two-building, 317-room hotel is now fully completed, following the West building opening in October 2020.
With the second building completed, the newly opened East Building offers military travelers an additional 146 extended-stay hotel rooms. Both buildings were constructed using cross-laminated timber (CLT), which offers maximized strength and durability with added sustainability and conservation benefits; Lendlease and IHG Army Hotels were the first to build a hotel out of CLT in the U.S., and Fort Jackson Candlewood Suites will be their fifth. This building is the latest example of the successful collaboration between the U.S. Army, Lendlease and IHG Army Hotels, which has amassed a portfolio of hotels located on 40 U.S. military installations, the companies report.
To accommodate the unique needs of today’s military travelers, the Candlewood Suites hotels include a variety of rooms with kitchenettes and amenities such as complimentary breakfast, laundry facilities, business center, fitness center, a swimming pool, picnic gazebo and Distinguished Visitors Quarters lounge.
Lendlease and IHG Army Hotels assumed operations of Fort Jackson’s lodging in 2013. Lendlease is the owner, developer, design-builder and asset manager, and the exclusive developer for the Department of Defense’s only lodging privatization program. IHG Hotel & Resorts is the hotel operator and manager of IHG Army Hotels. Nearly 30% of IHG Army Hotels employees across Lendlease and IHG Army Hotels’ privatized lodging portfolio are military spouses and veterans.
