Short term housing for TDY personnel to Joint Base Fort Lewis and McChord Air Force Base can be in limited supply depending on the time of year and operations schedule. If looking for an alternative to staying on post, there are numerous off base housing options in Tacoma and Lakewood many of which can be rented within Military BAH Rates.
Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) & IHG Army Hotels
The Fort Lewis-McChord IHG Army Hotel on post acts as the Visiting Officers Quarters (VOQ) or Basic Officers Quarters (BOQ) lodging facility which houses transient military members and their families who are interested in staying on base. Since lodging privatization, it is no longer required to obtain a statement or certificate of non-availability (SNA/CNA) to stay off post. Travelers wanting to stay off base can choose from a selection of our TDY Lodging hotels.Check out our McChord Air Force Base Lodging page for additional options.
