Disneyland-Bound Travelers Have a New Lion - The Red Lion Hotel Anaheim Celebrates its Grand Opening

May 07, 2009 // Franchising.com // Spokane, WA, - Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) recently celebrated the opening of the Red Lion Hotel Anaheim with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by travel providers, Disneyland representatives and community dignitaries.

After a $16 million complete renovation, the Red Lion Hotel Anaheim typifies the style, casualness and warmth that has become a Red Lion hallmark. The Anaheim renovation was all encompassing with every room, public area, meeting rooms, grounds and pool area completely rejuvenated. With 310 rooms, the Anaheim property is the first in the Red Lion system to be fully outfitted with the Stay Comfortable signature room. These rooms use modern forms and textures featuring leather headboards, frosted glass interior doors and colors selected to complement each hotel's customers and region. All of the traditional Stay Comfortable room elements that are so appreciated by Red Lion customers remain intact, including the Sealy-made Stay Comfortable bed, triple sheeting, indirect lighting, framed mirrors and granite and tiled bathrooms.

Anupam Narayan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Lion, said, "We are proud to reintroduce Red Lion to Southern California in such a big way. The Anaheim hotel's proximity to Disneyland and high caliber of features and amenities, teamed with the warm, genuine and sincere service Red Lion guests have come to expect are sure to make this property a huge success."

The full-service Red Lion Hotel Anaheim is adjacent to Disneyland and features a casual dining restaurant, a poolside bar, 5,000 square feet of meeting space, fully equipped fitness and business centers and a fun pool area with fire pits for nightly gatherings. Introductory rates are available for a limited time and vary by date of arrival. Members of Red Lion's loyalty program, the Red Lion R&R Club, will receive double points for stays made through September 30, 2009.
