SPOKANE, WA—RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) has signed a franchise license agreement for a new Hotel RL in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. The all-new Hotel RL Brooklyn Bed-Stuy, set to open in early 2017, is the ninth Hotel RL location since the brand launched just over a year ago.
“This will be a great addition to the Hotel RL collection. The cultural fabric of Brooklyn is closely aligned with the brand ethos of Hotel RL,” said Brian Quinn, RLHC SVP and chief franchise officer. “From The Living Stage to our custom coffee offerings, we anticipate this property to be a perfect fit for destination travelers and locals alike.”
In addition to its current Hotel RL locations in Baltimore Inner Harbor and Washington, DC, the company has in the pipeline a new-build in Long Island City, NY; franchise agreements for properties at the St. Louis Airport and College Station, TX; and three company-operated locations in Salt Lake City, and Spokane and Olympia, WA.
The future Hotel RL Brooklyn Bed-Stuy will have 70 guestrooms and The Living Stage, which showcases local entertainers and cultural presentations. The property is centrally located in the heart of Brooklyn, near the subway and New York City’s local attractions.
