NEW YORK—RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) has opened the Red Lion Inn & Suites Brooklyn, its first location in Greater New York City.
“If the tremendous response we have received from our clients and guests regarding this announcement is any indication, this hotel will be a popular location,” said RLHC SVP and Chief Franchise Officer Brian Quinn.
He added, “Brooklyn is one of the hottest markets in the country in terms of development, and the opening of this hotel places our branding in the core of it all. The ownership and management companies are well-regarded on the East Coast, and it is our pleasure to expand into this all-important market with them.”
RLHC announced earlier this month the company had signed a franchise license agreement with an affiliate of Three Wall Capital, LLC, to convert a hotel in Brooklyn to a Red Lion Inn & Suites. Under the agreement, the hotel will continue to be managed by Boast Hotel Management Company, LLC, an affiliate of Three Wall Capital, LLC.
“The transition to Red Lion Inn & Suites has been seamless,” said Alan Kanders, a principal of Three Wall Capital based in New York City. “We are investing in new guestrooms, public spaces and updated technology on this property which reflect the vibrant character of Park Slope in Brooklyn, and should be completed during the first quarter of 2016.”
Located in the historic Park Slope and Cobble Hill neighborhoods, the Red Lion Inn & Suites Brooklyn was built in 2007 and has 104 guestrooms and offers complimentary breakfast.
