DENVER (April 19, 2018)RLH Corporation (NYSE:RLH) announced today the sale of Red Lion Inn & Suites Bend for $5.5 million. The hotel marks the sixth of 11 hotels being marketed for sale previously disclosed in October 2017.

Each hotel has stayed in the RLH Corporation family of brands and will continue to drive return for the company.”
