Bolling’s 11th Services Division and the Naval Support Activity Washington Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation merged April 1 during the joint base implementation process, leading to full operational capability and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Oct. 1.
In preparation for the merge, about 70 staff members have been training together on Navy and Air Force policy, including joint training for housekeeping. The goal is for all housekeeping staff to be certified to the new joint standards by Sept. 15, said Jeanette Hudson-Gray, lodging manager.
‘‘The staff members are very excited to work together and learn new policies and processes,” she said.
Several options and amenities are available for prospective guests, including family units, limited pet-friendly units, 18 general officer quarters on Westover, convenience to downtown Washington, D.C., and a daily rate well below per diem: $42.50. Wireless internet is in the works, as well as the option to book online at www.DODlodging.net.
Also, because Gateway Inn and Suites is a branded name, guests are guaranteed the same quality service and amenities whether they stay on the Bolling side or Anacostia side, Ms. Hudson-Gray said.
