Cedar Inn and Suites in Kennewick near the Three Rivers Convention Center and the Toyota Center will become a Red Lion Inn and Suites in early April, Red Lion announced.
"The hotel is just a little over two years old and is in a fantastic location for both sports groups and business professionals," said Ron Burgett, executive vice president of lodging and brand development for Red Lion in a statement.
It will complement Red Lion's full service hotels in the Tri-Cities, he said.
The hotel, at 602 N. Young St., is a 61-room limited service property with an indoor pool and 300 square feet of meeting space.
Red Lion Hotels Corp. signed a franchise license agreement with Sandhu NW Hospitality, the owners of a hotel in Kennewick. Sandhu is also an owner of the Red Lion Inn and Suites Kent, in Western Washington.
"We have had early success with Red Lion at our Kent hotel, so this move seemed like a natural next step," said Paul Sandhu of Sandhu NW Hospitality, in a statement.
