Red Lion Hotels & Inns Friday announced the addition of Alaska Airlines as its newest travel partner.
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members are now eligible to receive 250 or 500 miles for each qualifying stay, in addition to receiving Red Lion Club credits earned for each night’s qualifying stay at nearly 35 Red Lion Hotels & Inns across the Western U.S.
“Our new partnership with Alaska Airlines provides another ‘reward-winning’ choice for our business and leisure guests who stay at Red Lion Hotels and Inns across the Western U.S.,” said Tom Murray, chief operating officer of Red Lion Hotels & Inns and senior vice president — hotel division for Hilton Hotels Corporation. “This is just another way for us to say ‘thank you’ to our frequent guests for choosing to stay with us.” Alaska Airlines is a dominant carrier in the Western U.S. Along with Horizon Air, Alaska’s regional carrier in the Pacific Northwest, the Alaska Airlines network serves 73 cities — all in areas where Red Lion Hotels & Inns has the strongest brand recognition.
Alaska Airlines is equally enthusiastic about its relationship with one of the premier names in the hospitality industry. “Red Lion exemplifies the quality that we look for in a Mileage Plan partner,” said Gregg Saretsky, Alaska Airlines, senior vice president/marketing and planning. “This partnership is good for Alaska Airlines and Red Lion, and most important, it is good for our customers.”
The partnership includes the Red Lion Club program, which provides frequent guests with special discounts, complimentary late checkout times, and Red Lion Club Rewards. After staying the required number of nights, and then being eligible for a reward, guests may choose either a free night, a $50 U.S. Savings Bond, or 1000 bonus miles from participating airline partners. Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan now joins Northwest Airlines(R) WorldPerks(R) and American Airlines(R) AAdvantage(R) Program as travel partners of Red Lion, rewarding guests with program miles for specified room rates and with bonus miles in Red Lion Club Rewards.
