SAVANNAH, Georgia (November 9, 2012) — Green Palm Inn will join hundreds of inns and B&Bs throughout the U.S. and Canada in honoring active and retired veterans with free rooms in recognition of Veteran’s Day.  In a campaign called B&Bs for Vets, Green Palm Inn will join inns and B&Bs in opening their doors with complimentary stays for vets on November 11, 2012 so they can have a great night’s sleep in a B&B. Green Palm Inn offered and filled all four of the inn’s rooms with U.S. veterans.

“This is our third year to participate, and we are proud to join innkeepers across the USA and Canada in honoring retired military veterans,” said innkeeper Diane McCray. “It is heartwarming to me and over 500 innkeepers this year to host thousands of veterans a B&B, like ours in this concerted way.  I hope each will realize what an honor this is for us to express our gratitude for their service,” adds Diane.

The B&Bs for Vets program started in 2008 when Kathleen Panek, co-owner of the Gillum House and a handful of other innkeepers in West Virginia opened their doors to veterans in honor of Veteran’s Day. The program grew in popularity among innkeepers, and last year  more than 900 inns in the US and Canada participated by offering free rooms to vets.  This year, the Professional Association of Innkeepers International will coordinate the B&Bs for Vets program as a way to help veterans learn about today’s B&B experience.

Green Palm Inn’s rooms have already been reserved by veterans. To see a complete list of participating inns and B&Bs in the U.S. and Canada, visit http://www.betterwaytostay.com/current-promotions/bbs-for-vets/.
