Supporting Military Veterans

IHG has been supporting military veterans as they transition to civilian employment and a new role in hospitality for a number of years. The skills, work ethic and values that have been learnt in the military are exactly what we're looking for in our team members. We offer employment opportunities in our hotels across the globe and in across all our brands. In addition, we manage and operate IHG Army Hotels located inside 40 U.S. Army installations.

“There’s a difference between hospitality and True Hospitality.” Committed to serving her brothers and sisters in uniform, military veteran and Regional Director of Operations for IHG Army Hotels, Teresa “Sarge” Colatarci has ensured her staff provides True Hospitality through personalized care and programs like the IHG Teen Academy.
