Search by military base and government landmarks, address, route, city, airport or local attraction and find the closest accommodations; Access extensive hotel information, including enhanced hotel and room descriptions, photos and virtual tours, services and amenities, special offers, destination information, maps and directions; Compare up to four hotels side by side and make a reservation receiving a government rate1; Access up-to-the minute availability of hotel guest rooms and function space; Search for, view and modify an existing reservation; Earn Points & Miles® for each stay as a member of the Hilton HHonors® program (membership is free); Benefit from No Blackout Dates for HHonors members. As long as a standard room is available, members can confirm that room using their HHonors points2. Government and Military employees simply show their official employee identification and/or their travel orders when they check-in.
"Our goal with this value- and service-oriented government portal is to make it even more convenient for government and military employees to find the right hotel accommodations and the most ideal services and packages corresponding to military bases and other key government institutions, while enabling them to fully benefit from their loyalty through our Hilton HHonors customer loyalty program in the process," said Scott Lamb, director – government segment, Hilton Hotels Corporation.
