Quality Inn in Cat City Gets New Name


The Quality Inn and Suites in Cathedral City got a sign change.

That’s pretty much the extent of the changes associated with the mid-budget hotel’s switch to Red Lion Inn and Suites, say those familiar with the deal.

The hotel’s owners — Sang and Connie Chae of WR Management Co., based in Bellevue, Wash. — remain the same, as does the hotel’s offerings and operation.

“Because we are located in a year-round resort destination, our hotel is a great addition for Red Lion guests,” said Chae in a statement. “Additionally, we are proud to be the first Inn & Suites with the new signage.”

Located seven miles southeast of Palm Springs, the Red Lion Inn & Suites in Cathedral City, (69151 E. Palm Canyon Drive) has 97 rooms and approximately 750 square feet of meeting space.

“This property will be the first in our system to display the new Red Lion Inns & Suites logo and exterior signage,”  said Ron Burgett, Executive Vice President of Lodging and Brand Development for Red Lion Hotel Corporation, in  a statement.

Red Lion Hotels Corporation is a hospitality and leisure Company primarily engaged in the ownership, operation and franchising of midscale hotels under its Red Lion brand. As of Sept. 30, 2012, the RLH hotel network was comprised of 47 hotels located in nine states and one Canadian province, with 8,872 rooms and 443,587 square feet of meeting space.
