SPOKANE, Wash., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) announced today it has entered into an agreement to sell the Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena, Mont., to Helena Colonial L.L.C.  The purchase price for the sale is $5.6 million and the close date is scheduled for July 31, 2012.  The buyer has indicated that it intends after closing to enter into a franchise license agreement with Red Lion Hotels Franchising Inc. and maintain the Red Lion brand on the hotel.
