Red Lion sells Bellevue property for $35.4M

RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation entered into an agreement to sell its hotel in Bellevue, Wash., for $35.4 million to an affiliate of Wig Properties, a property development company based in Bellevue. Wig Properties entered into a multi- year management agreement with Red Lion Hotels Management, under which the hotel will continue to operate as the Red Lion Hotel Bellevue. The deal on the property is expected to close in early February 2015, subject to customary terms and conditions.

“The sale of this property provides RLHC with the best of all opportunities,” said RLHC president & CEO Greg Mount. “We maintain our brand presence in an important market while capturing the full value of one of the most desirable development sites on the West Coast. We expect to use approximately $19.4 million of the proceeds to retire debt and the remaining cash will provide dry powder to advance our national expansion plans. In line with that strategy, we continue to explore the greater Seattle area markets for additional hotel conversion and joint venture opportunities.”

Constructed in 1969, the two-story Red Lion Hotel Bellevue, 11211 Main Street, resides on six acres along the I-405 corridor and has 181 rooms and 5,700 square feet of meeting space.
