SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) announced today the company has entered into a definitive agreement to sell for $13.0 million the Red Lion Hotel Denver Southeast in Colorado.

The 478 room select service hotel has 25,000 square feet of meeting space and is located in the southeast metro Denver area adjacent to the light rail line.  The hotel borders Cherry Creek State Park and has scenic views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown Denver.  Red Lion Hotels Corporation announced in January 2012 it was listing the hotel for sale.
