New Hotel RL is coming to Houston

Hotel RL Baltimore

RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) revealed its tenth location for the Hotel RL brand will be constructed in downtown Houston, Texas.

"The downtown area is a hub for sports, leisure and entertainment, thus an ideal setting for the Hotel RL brand," said Brian Quinn, RLHC SVP and CFO. "We see artistic components like the Living Stage and our signature coffeehouse experience aligning well with guests and the local community."

Set to open in the second half of 2018, the future Hotel RL Houston Downtown will have 150 guestrooms, a retail space, the signature Hotel RL restaurant and bar, meeting areas, business center and fitness center. The property will be located at 1005 St. Emanuel Street, ten miles from Houston Hobby Airport and within walking distance to BBVA Compass Stadium, Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park and the George R. Brown Convention Center.
