RLHC to Build New Hotel RL in Houston

SPOKANE, WA—RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) plans to build its 10th location for the Hotel RL brand in downtown Houston.

“The downtown area is a hub for sports, leisure and entertainment, thus an ideal setting for the Hotel RL brand,” said Brian Quinn, SVP and chief franchise officer, RLHC. “We see artistic components like the Living Stage and our signature coffeehouse experience aligning well with guests and the local community.”

Set to open in the second half of 2018, the future Hotel RL Houston Downtown will have 150 guestrooms, a retail space, the signature Hotel RL restaurant and bar, meeting areas, business center and fitness center. The property will be located at 1005 St. Emanuel St., 10 miles from Houston Hobby Airport and a short distance to BBVA Compass Stadium, Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park and the George R. Brown Convention Center.

With the addition of the Houston property, the collection of Hotel RL locations includes current locations in Washington and Baltimore, as well as upcoming properties in Spokane, WA; Olympia, WA; Salt Lake City, College Station, TX; St. Louis, Brooklyn, NY; and Long Island City, NY.
