Red Lion Hotel Anaheim to Treat William & Kate Guests As Royalty

Absent a July Visit from Britain's Royal Couple, Hotel Offers Free Three-Night Stay to all U.S. William & Kate Married Couples

Anaheim, CA, July 5, 2011 - Red Lion Hotel Anaheim, located walking distance from Disneyland® Resort, was disappointed to learn that Britain's newlyweds Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton will not be visiting Disneyland on their official visit to the U.S. in July. Accordingly, the hotel is offering all U.S. married couples - named William and Kate - the royal treatment with a free three-night stay at its family friendly hotel during the month of July.

Royal Luxury - Stay Comfortable and Content
"Of course we were sad for Prince William and Kate that they are not going to be visiting Disneyland during their U.S. vacation next month," said Red Lion Hotel Anaheim General Manager Paul Thornton. "We really thought after spending $48 million on their wedding just a few weeks ago, they would especially appreciate very reasonable rates (a steal in comparison to a castle) while being treated in the luxury for which they are accustomed - with our casually sleek design, free breakfast, free parking, outdoor heated pool and rooms with free Wi-Fi, refrigerators, microwaves, granite bathrooms and 37 inch flat-screen TVs."

"So we decided to commemorate the royal couple's U.S. visit by offering a free three-night stay during the months of July and August to all the U.S. married couples named William and Kate (or Catherine)."

"We have only one small request," Mr. Thornton added, "that at the conclusion of their free three-night stay, these guests send a post card or short letter to Prince William and Kate to share highlights of their Red Lion Hotel Anaheim or Anaheim theme park visit with them since the royal couple was not themselves able to enjoy a stay with us."
