A gargantuan on-base, government-owned hotel at Fort Lee in Petersburg is open for business.

The 504,000-square-foot, 1,000-room Fort Lee Lodge, built to house soldiers training at Fort Lee’s Army Logistics University, began serving troops in late December after being under construction for two years. It is the largest such lodging facility in the U.S. Army.

The $86.3 million property has more than two miles of hallways running through seven stories on 27.5 acres, said Marc Jannsen, the hotel’s manager, during a tour of the facility Tuesday.

“Each room has a 32-inch, high-definition flat screen with Blu-ray,” he said, “which is standard throughout the Army.”
