SPOKANE, WA—After a six-month renovation, RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) has opened the Red Lion Hotel Atlanta Airport. It is the company’s first location in the greater Atlanta metro area and first property to adopt the new Red Lion Hotel guestroom prototype design. The hotel formerly was the 3 Palms Atlanta Airport North.
“This is a welcome addition to our East Coast portfolio of properties, which includes Red Lion Inn & Suites Brooklyn, Red Lion Hotel Harrisburg, Red Lion Hotel Orlando-Kissimmee Maingate, Hotel RL Baltimore and Hotel RL Washington D.C.,” said RLHC President & CEO Greg Mount. “This hotel was built with the intent of showing the transformational opportunity that exists for capitalized assets adopting the repositioned Red Lion brand.”
The Red Lion Hotel Atlanta International Airport, located at 1419 Virginia Ave., is one mile from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and eight miles southwest of downtown Atlanta. Major updates to the six-story property include a fresh lobby concept with new furniture, reimagined public spaces, new exterior signage and enhanced landscaping. The 246 guestrooms were also refurbished with new furnishings and amenities.
“Atlanta is an exciting metropolitan city, serving as a gateway to further expand our family of brands to the eastern United States,” said RLHC SVP of Corporate Development Angela Landgraf. “We look forward to welcoming everyone from world travelers to guests from neighboring Fortune 500 companies.”
The hotel will offer complimentary onsite airport shuttle service and local transportation pickup and drop-off from the College Park and MARTA light rail stations.
