Red Lion Hotels Completes Credit Facility

SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. 13, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) completed its $40 million credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank making available up to $10 million on a revolving line, in addition to $30 million in term debt obtained in September 2011.

As additional collateral for the facility, the company pledged the Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena, MT, as well as the Red Lion Hotel Denver Southeast and the Red Lion Hotel Kalispell and Kalispell Center Mall in Montana. The debt secured by the Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena was retired using cash reserves. The $10 million revolving line of credit with Wells Fargo is currently unused.

"The revolving line of credit is available for short-term borrowing needs."

The 149-room Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena, MT, remains listed for sale. The hotel has 15,500 square feet of meeting space, the largest group space in the market, and underwent a major renovation in 2006.
