RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) signed its fifth location and first franchise license agreement for Hotel RL, its upscale lifestyle brand. Following a multi-million dollar renovation incorporating signature design elements, Hotel RL St. Louis Airport is expected to open in the second quarter of 2016.
Adjacent to the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, the future Hotel RL St. Louis Airport has 197 guestroom and nearly 4,000 square feet of meeting space. The hotel has a lounge, indoor heated pool, fitness center, business center and complimentary Wi-Fi and airport shuttle service.
Hotel RL debuted in August with the opening of Hotel RL Baltimore Inner Harbor. Also in August, the company announced it will enter into a joint venture to acquire a future Hotel RL Washington D.C., which is expected to execute within the next few weeks. Three more hotel conversions are planned for the first half of 2016 following substantial capital improvements in company operated properties in Olympia, Salt Lake City and Spokane.
