GSA has partnered with the lodging industry to provide federal travelers with Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) compliant accommodations within per diem allowance for selected high-volume travel destinations, both within and outside of the Continental United States.
GSALodging® includes the following offerings:
FedRooms® provides federal travelers on official business with FTR compliant hotel rooms for transient and extended stays (up to 29 days). The program puts government travelers in FEMA and ADA-compliant rooms at or below per diem rates with flexible terms, right where they need to be.
Go to FedRooms® (a nongovernment website) for more information and a current list of hotels. The GSA website also provides a list of participating hotels [EXCEL, 6MB] on a monthly basis. FedRooms® rates are available through all of the government's preferred booking channels, which include E2 Solutions, FedTraveler, GovTrip and the Defense Travel System.
FedRooms® now offers a market research tool for planning meetings. FedRooms® Groups and Meetings is free and simple to use! Check out our informational sheet [PDF, 369K] for additional details on this tool.
