Commercial Lodging

As part of the Integrated Lodging Program Pilot, DTMO partnered with GSA/FedRooms to negotiate commercial lodging in select locations through a third party vendor for rates below per diem that meet established requirements. To be selected to participate in the pilot program as a DoD Preferred commercial lodging property, hotels meet strict quality, safety and security requirements and offer rates below per diem, as well as, additional traveler protections (no fee for cancellations before 4pm, etc.) and conveniences (free internet, free parking, etc.) at no additional cost. 

The JTR requires travelers TDY to an Integrated Lodging Program Pilot site or surrounding metro area to book DoD Preferred commercial lodging before other commercial lodging options.  

Other Commercial Lodging Government Programs

  • FedRooms - DoD travelers are permitted to use the General Services Administration (GSA) FedRooms program. FedRooms offers specially negotiated federal government hotel rates at or below per diem. The program offers benefits to travelers such as no early check-out fees, no deposits, no hidden fees and travelers can cancel a reservation until 4pm on the day of arrival without penalty. For more information on GSA FedRooms, log on to: or To obtain these benefits, you must reserve the room with the FedRooms rate - not a government rate. DTS displays FedRooms properties on tab 4 – Commercial Fire Safety Act Compliant in the lodging reservation module.

  • Long Term Lodging - If a traveler is to be TDY at one location for more than 30 days, lodging reservations should be made on a weekly, monthly, or other long-term basis if possible. Companies offering long term lodging arrangements under a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule can be found at These facilities are typically in an apartment or condominium type property and may be furnished with all the amenities of a home.
