Transitioning service members and veterans traveling to FASTPORT’s Gulf Coast Military Hiring Fair on January 26, 2018 can receive discounted rates at La Quinta hotels in the Mobile, AL area. The event will take place from 11:00 am - 2:30 pm CST at the Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion, just steps away from the USS Alabama battleship and the day before the Reese’s Senior Bowl. The hiring event is co-sponsored by the Reese’s Senior Bowl, The South Alabama Veterans Council, Centurion Military Alliance and Kaplan University.

With La Quinta’s military discount, current and former service members will save money as they seek to travel to this unique venue and event. There are several La Quinta Inns & Suites close to the Mobile area so the attending military community will have multiple lodging options that will honor the military discount, including:

La Quinta Inn – Mobile

La Quinta Inns & Suites – Tillman’s Corner  

La Quinta Inns & Suites – Satsuma / Saraland

La Quinta Inn Inns & Suites – Daphne

Inbound travelers simply need to call the hotel direct and ask for the Military Rate Discount or book online at using the military rate discount code (Military). The guestrooms and military rate discount at each participating location is based on availability at time of the reservation.

“La Quinta recognizes that no one understands service like the military and that’s why we want to serve them,” said Liesl Vargas, La Quinta’s Vice President of Talent Acquisition. “We are honored the military community can use our discount to explore new career path opportunities at the upcoming Gulf Coast Hiring Fair.”

“As a military friendly employer, La Quinta has a long history of supporting service members, and this is a strong statement of how it will continue to serve our nation’s heroes in the future,” said Brad Bentley, FASTPORT President. “We are thrilled out-of-town service members will be able to travel with less cost as they seek new career paths from national, regional, and local employers in Mobile, and we look forward to helping them find great jobs at companies like La Quinta that value military service and training.”

La Quinta also offers a rewards program for all active duty service members, veterans or military spouses. It's called La Quinta Returns Military Rewards and is the company’s way of saying "thank you" for your service. To join, visit: and for career opportunities at La Quinta, visit:
