Red Lion Hotels to convert Tucson Quality Inn & Suites

Red Lion Hotels Corporation signed a franchise agreement on a property in Tucson, Ariz.

The Quality Inn & Suites, 7411 N. Oracle Road, is expected to convert to the Red Lion Inn & Suites brand in May. The hotel is near Tohono Chul Park, and provides  access to The University of Arizona, Sabino Canyon, Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson Studios and Mission San Xavier del Bac. The hotel has 155 rooms, 91 of which are suites, and 1,600 square feet of meeting space.  The hotel also has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, the courtyard putting green and a free hot breakfast.

In January 2013, Red Lion announced the Leo Hotel Collection at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS).  In February, the 3,000-room LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino became the inaugural property in that collection, as well as the second property in Nevada within the company’s network. Red Lion then expanded into Arizona with the addition of the Red Lion Inn & Suites Phoenix/Tempe – ASU.
