SPOKANE, WA (October 26, 2009) - Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) today introduced a new corporate rate program specifically designed to serve the needs of smaller companies and their oft-neglected road warriors. While large companies routinely receive hotel perks and benefits because of their large volume commitments, smaller companies have often been left out in the cold. The Red Lion Business Travel Advantage program changes that.
Red Lion's 45 hotels throughout the West offer all of the amenities business travelers expect. From recently renovated guest rooms with ergonomic work areas to well equipped business centers and workout facilities, Red Lion's hotels provide an environment conducive to business. Designed to provide value to the company and ease-of-use features to the traveler, Business Travel Advantage provides a host of unparalleled features.

Red Lion took the biggest complaints reported by business travelers and addressed them via the Business Travel Advantage program. An almost universal concern expressed by business travelers across the industry is "when my flight's delayed and I get to the hotel late in the evening, I'm either given a bad room or potentially have no room at all." Business Travel Advantage guests are checked-in prior to arrival and given Red Lion's "best available room in the house" so that while dealing with other travel hassles they'll never have to worry about their hotel stay. Another benefit with Business Travel Advantage is that each guest receives a $20.00 per stay business center credit so simple or unexpected print jobs can be taken care of for free.
"We did a lot of research and found that smaller companies aren't given the financial and service recognition they deserve, especially in this economy," said Mark D. Mahoney, VP of Sales, Red Lion Hotels. "With Business Travel Advantage, we're providing these smaller companies with perks, benefits, and value typically reserved for Fortune 1,000 companies," added Mahoney.
Business Travel Advantage is available by enrollment and more information is available at redlion.com/BTA or through the Red Lion National Sales office at 509.459.6111 or email@example.com.
