Private Firm Opening Fort Riley Hotel

KSAL StaffDecember 16, 2013

Army and developers are preparing to open the doors of a new hotel at Fort Riley, part of a military program to improve on-post lodging for soldiers and families.

The hotel is a Candlewood Suites with 100 guest rooms that was constructed through the Army, Lend Lease US Public Partnerships and InterContinental Hotel Group. Construction of the hotel began in July 2012.

A ribbon cutting will be held Tuesday at the northeast Kansas post, which is home of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division and nearly 18,000 soldiers and their families.

Developers say that Lend Lease has provided nearly 1,300 hotel rooms at military installations throughout the United States. The goal is to develop or renovate more than 11,600 hotel rooms at installations nationwide.
