Hotel News!

We have news!

Our hotel’s owner/management (Inner Circle Management) has entered into a new franchise agreement with RLH (Red Lion). We wish to stress that this move was the ownership’s decision, and did not come from Radisson corporate. RLH is in the process of trying to expand heavily on the east coast, and Inner Circle will be moving all 11 of their Radisson properties to the Red Lion Hotels brand.

We know most of you will be concerned about your room reservations, and we understand that. In fact, we encourage you to call the hotel directly to confirm that your reservation has been moved over. We only ask that you give the hotel until AFTER April 20. The High Point Furniture Market is coming up soon and the hotel staff’s attention is, understandably, heavily focused on that 100,000 person event.

As for what you can expect from the new franchise agreement, it is our understanding that the answer is: very little will change. The Red Lion Hotels level of RLH competes at the same price point as Radisson, so service should be very similar. The only major change we are aware of is that Red Lion does not offer room service. In its place, however is a “Grab and Go” service. Honestly, for those of us who are con regulars, this might actually be more useful. You call up, order your food, then stop by the restaurant and pick it up.  We also wish to emphasize that the hotel will be offering concessions and buffets again this year, so food should be fairly easy to get your hands on.

More hotel info will be forthcoming as we have it.
