RENTON, WA—Red Lion Hotels Corporation has opened a new franchise location here, after signing an agreement with the owners in June. This is the sixth franchise agreement completed by the company in 2014.
The Red Lion Hotel & Conference Center – Seattle/Renton was formerly the Holiday Inn before recently becoming an independent property, the Rainier Hotel and Conference Center.
“This is a highly visible intersection on the 405 corridor, providing excellent exposure for our brand,” said Mike Castro, regional VP of Lodging Development for Red Lion Hotels Corporation (RLHC). “We know our guests travel this region and these owners are committed to providing our guests with the same level of service they have come to expect."
The property features the Yankee Grill Restaurant, an outdoor pool and heated whirlpool, fitness center, complimentary WiFi and 7,000 sq. ft. of meeting space.
