SPOKANE, Wash. - March 25, 2015 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) (NYSE:RLH) announced today the company has reentered the market in Eugene, Oregon, following the conversion of a hotel there. The Red Lion Inn & Suites Eugene converted to the brand overnight.

"The Red Lion name has held such a prominent place in Eugene for half a century," said Lal Sidhu of US Hotel, LLC., who signed a franchise license agreement with RLHC earlier this month. "We think the brand will play well for our location." The owners will invest substantially in the guest rooms and the fitness center at the hotel. Sidhu also announced AA Hotel Management Co. will manage the property.

The Red Lion Inn & Suites Eugene, 599 E Broadway, offers complimentary breakfast, a fitness center, a business center, Wi-Fi and guest laundry.

"Eugene has been an important market for Red Lion and we are looking forward to working with these owners to provide a great stay for our guests," said RLHC Chief Franchise Officer Brian Quinn.
