Red Lion Hotels Signs Franchise Agreement for Hotel
at Denver, Colorado International Airport

The Future 87-room Red Lion Inn and Suites Denver Airport Owned
by Tower Hospitality will Open by November 2012


SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 14, 2012 -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) today announced the company has signed a franchise license agreement with the owners of a hotel located at the Denver International Airport, the fifth busiest airport in the nation.

"Our new franchise is one of the closest hotels in proximity to the Denver International Airport, a superb location that will gain visibility for our brand," said Ron Burgett, Executive Vice President of Lodging and Brand Development for Red Lion Hotels. "We have been looking for just the right property in this airport market and we are glad to have this hotel join the system."

The future Red Lion Inn and Suites Denver Airport, located at 7010 Tower Road, is expected to join the system by November 2012. The hotel has 87 guest rooms and is just minutes from downtown and multiple venues, including those used by the Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets.

"With all of the competition we have in this market, we think Red Lion will help us to differentiate our property and compete in the midscale segment," said Zanfar Kahn of Tower Hospitality, owners of the hotel.
