Red Lion sells Washington, Idaho properties

Red Lion Hotels Corporation has sold its properties in Kennewick, Wash., and Twin Falls, Id., to new owners who each signed franchise agreements with property improvement plans.

"We have retained franchise agreements with the sale of the first four properties of six we listed last fall," said Greg Mount, President & CEO of Red Lion Hotels Corporation. "In each of these cases, the new owners have agreed to significant property improvement plans. Each of these sales substantiate the relevance and name recognition of the Red Lion brands."

The Red Lion Hotel Columbia Center was sold on May 28, 2014. As part of the agreement, the new franchise owner is keeping the name and will improve the landscaping and parking lot of the exterior and update the guest rooms at the property. The hotel has 162 guestrooms and suites with nearly 10,000 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor pool, free Wi-Fi and Louie's Lounge, open nightly for dinner, sports and entertainment. Adjacent to the Columbia Center Mall, the property is three blocks from the Three Rivers Convention Center and Toyota Center.
