Given I have stayed at this particular Red Lion dozens of times I felt it was time I gave it a review. Designed by famous Seattle based architect Roland Terry (1917 - 2006) many years ago this sprawling building must have over 300 rooms. Done about the same time Terry was designing hotels in Hawaii the building originally had touches like Tiki torches and other tropical motifs, all of which have disappeared over the years. But each room has a small balcony and the courtyards between the 4 wings give it the feel of a resort hotel. The rooms are twice the size of your average upscale motel (after all this is a "Hotel") and the bathrooms are huge by normal standards. I haven't eaten in the hotel restaurant, the Jantzen Beach Bar & Grille or had a drink in the bar JB's Night Club but I can say that returning to the hotel about 11:30 pm on a Saturday the crowds were still arriving to party (therefore, see my tips on getting a good room.) Prices per room can swing wildly from $90 to $140 as it depends if you are trying to book when a convention is going on. The only alternatives in the area are low price motels and "suite" type buildings.
