Holiday Inn Club Vacations Launches Guest of Honor Program for Military Families, Veterans

Orange Lake Resort in Orlando

Holiday Inn Club Vacations announced the launch of Guest of Honor, a program that provides complimentary resort stays to active-duty military, veterans and their families. In conjunction with the launch of Guest of Honor, Holiday Inn Club Vacations has introduced its partnership with Vacations for Vets, a program run by In Honor of Our Troops (IHOOT), a nonprofit organization that works with hospitality brands to provide free lodging to active-duty military and veterans.

To kick off this program, Holiday Inn Club Vacations donated more than 10 million Club points, and over Memorial Day weekend, nine different military members and their families enjoyed a week-long stay at several Holiday Inn Club Vacations properties located across the U.S., including Orange Lake Resort in Orlando, Florida; Desert Club Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada; Villages Resort at Lake Palestine in Flint, Texas; and Oak n’ Spruce Resort in the Berkshires in South Lee, Massachusetts. Moving forward, the Company will continue to provide complimentary stays to military members by collecting donated points from Holiday Inn Club members.

“At Holiday Inn Club Vacations, we believe that travel not only brings families closer together, but truly strengthens their bonds. Our brave military members, along with the dedicated families who take on the important role of loving and supporting a service member, deserve this more than anyone,” said John Staten, President and Chief Operating Officer at Holiday Inn Club Vacations Incorporated. “Our Club members fully understand the immeasurable benefits of traveling together, so we are confident they will embrace this great new program with open arms.”

“For the selfless men and women who serve our country, a vacation is far more than a chance to relax with friends and family. It’s an opportunity to heal as they transition back to civilian life, along with time to reconnect with loved ones,” said Philip Strambler, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of IHOOT. “We are grateful for our partnership with Holiday Inn Club Vacations, as it allows our team to bring these life-changing experiences to even more members of our military.”

Active-duty military members and veterans can apply for a stay through Vacations for Vets,  or get more information from Holiday Inn Club Vacations.
