New-build Hotel RL planned for New York City

Red Lion hotel room

RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) is building a third new-build Hotel RL—and eighth location overall—in Long Island City, New York, set to open in early 2019.

In addition to its current Hotel RL locations in Baltimore Inner Harbor and Washington, D.C., the company announced a franchise agreement for a location at the St. Louis Airport and three company-operated locations in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Spokane and Olympia, Wash., all expected to convert in the first half of 2016.

The future Hotel RL Long Island City, planned for 38-15 9th Street, will have 180 guestrooms, a full-service restaurant, rooftop public area, meeting areas, a fitness center and a business center. The property is located on the west end of the Queens borough, near the MoMA PS1 contemporary art museum, Queens Bridge Medical Center and the East River.
