The outdoor lounge at Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails


As the flagship of Red Lion Hotels’ chain makeover, Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue in Seattle is undergoing a major overhaul. Starting with the common areas, they’ve upped the ante in terms of décor, with vibrant, contemporary colors, new furniture and modern art in what was once a Red Lion Inn. The new restaurant, Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails, sports a gorgeous interior and inviting outdoor patio (weather permitting, that is). There is a fitness room, as well as plans to add a spa.


Previously known more for its superb location in downtown Seattle, the hotel’s revamp has increased its desirability. Location is still a huge draw for travelers, though, as it is walking distance to major Seattle attractions, such as Pike Place Market, the waterfront and excellent dining and shopping. And if you land a room with a view, the picturesque vistas of the Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains are superlative from this 319-room tower hotel.


These changes come just after the hotel group’s announcement earlier this year about its new boutique line of hotels called the Leo Hotel Collection. And it must be said that, although re-branding can sometimes be tricky, we’re a fan of Red Lion’s new look.
