BETHESDA, Md.--December 7, 2017--RLJ Lodging Trust (the “Company”) (NYSE: RLJ) today announced that it has expanded its relationship with Interstate Hotels and Resorts (“Interstate”) in connection with White Lodging’s sale of management contracts to Interstate. The transaction is expected to close on or about January 31, 2018. The terms of the original White Lodging contracts will remain in effect. 

“This transaction will result in Interstate Hotels becoming our largest management company,” commented Ross H.
