“IHG® Hotels & Resorts values our longstanding partnership with CLC Lodging,” said Betty Wilson, Vice President of Americas Sales, IHG. “And we are thrilled that IHG hotels are now available for CLC members to instantly book, making it even easier for you to select the very best hotel for your travelers’ stays.”
The time and resources spent on finding safe, reliable lodging for your team may be costing your company more than you think. Managing workforce travel can be incredibly difficult and time-consuming without the expertise to find the right hotels at worksite locations, negotiate rates, and manage changes to travel plans. As many companies re-budget for business travel in the last quarter of this challenging year, they need to find a better way to manage workforce lodging.
Thankfully, CLC Lodging offers a better, more affordable way to travel, partnering with leading hotels like IHG® to make it easier than ever to search, book, and manage reservations—all at pre-negotiated and discounted rates.
Finding quality lodging has never been simpler. CLC’s members gain instant access to a network of up to 45,000 world leading hotels at discounted rates. CLC Network hotels offer our members the lowest rate 9x out of 10*, and that’s just the beginning. Teams that travel with CLC save invaluable time and resources with consolidated billing, comprehensive reporting, and 24/7 traveler support.
This month, we’re excited to shine a light on some of our members’ favorite hotel brands in our network: the world-renowned International Hotel Group (IHG).
