MINNEAPOLIS, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In celebration of the upcoming July 4th holiday, AmericInn hotels across the country today introduced a special discounted room rate for current and retired members of the U.S. military plus their dependents. The system-wide 10 per cent discount is the latest in a series of initiatives by AmericInn to support military personnel and their families.
“As America celebrates its most patriotic national holiday, we are pleased to introduce this special discount in appreciation for the service of military members and their families,” said Paul Kirwin, president and CEO of AmericInn. AmericInn is one of the nation’s leading mid-scale hotel companies with over 260 locations open or under development in 27 states.
The AmericInn military discount will be available beginning June 29 and continue indefinitely. Active duty and retired members of the military or dependents are asked to request the AmericInn Military Rate (rate code: MIL) when they make their reservation at a hotel, AmericInn.com or by calling the toll free telephone number 1-800-634-3444. A military I.D. is also required at check-in.
AmericInn has sponsored several previous initiatives to support members of the military as part of an overall “AmericInn Cares” commitment to caring, involvement and patriotism. At the company’s 2011 Annual Convention earlier this year AmericInn partnered with the national Blue Star Mothers organization to donate over 300 Personal Care Packages that were prepared and shipped overseas to active duty troops. In 2010 AmericInn also organized a national “Troop Giveback” campaign in conjunction with its Easy Rewards guest loyalty program, donating similar Care Packages to troops serving in Afghanistan.
“We look forward to introducing this latest demonstration of the ‘AmericInn Cares’ program by serving as a welcoming neighbor for military families,” Kirwin said. “We hope that they will take advantage of this opportunity to save money while enjoying our warm and friendly hospitality during their travels,” he added.
