Local hotel announces participation in ‘Hotels For Heroes’

AmericInn offers free stays for wounded members of U.S. military, their families

The AmericInn Greenville recently announced it is participating with other AmericInn hotels nationwide to support a new military support program called “Hotels For Heroes,” providing free hotel stays for wounded U.S. troops and their families while they are receiving treatment.

The program, which provides AmericInn customers the option of donating their Easy Rewards guest loyalty points to “Hotels For Heroes,” was announced last month by government, military and foundation leaders at a special event in Washington, D.C. AmericInn hotels is a founding partner of the program.

“We are pleased to join with AmericInn hotels across the country in supporting the ‘Hotels For Heroes’ program as another demonstration of our ongoing support for America’s military,” said Anne Moyle, general manager.

AmericInn hotels are operating or under development in over 260 locations in 27 states, including the location at 2525 W. Washington.

The “Hotels For Heroes” program is being administered by the Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting America’s wounded warriors, veterans and their families. The Fisher House will pool donations of AmericInn Easy Rewards points, along with donated points from other participating hotel companies, to provide free accommodations to wounded, injured or ill service members and their families while undergoing treatment at medical centers.

AmericInn customers can donate their Easy Rewards points to the “Hotels For Heroes” program by logging into their account and accessing the “redeem” and “donation” tabs.

AmericInn has been honored twice by the Department of Defense for its extensive programs of support for members of the military, receiving the “Seven Seals Award” and the “Above and Beyond Award.” The company has designated military support and patriotism as a central part of its overall culture, focusing on the theme “AmericInn Cares.” During the past year, AmericInn launched several major initiatives including preparing and shipping thousands of care packages to military troops stationed overseas plus preparing gift items, tote bags and bicycles for the families of military members.

AmericInn also offers a national discount on room rates to active duty and retired members of the military and their dependents. They can receive this discount by requesting the AmericInn Military Rate (rate code: MIL) when they make their reservation at a hotel, AmericInn.com or by calling the toll-free number (800) 634-3444.
