 The 2,956-room LVH -- Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, will be the first property to join the Leo Hotel Collection, a new brand from Red Lion Hotels Corp. The collection, announced last week, will include independent boutique and historic properties that will gain access to Red Lion's reservation and revenue management systems, sales and marketing support, and loyalty club network. Red Lion and LVH signed the agreement this week and expect to complete the integration by the end of the first quarter. The LVH is next to the Las Vegas Convention Center and has 220,000 square feet of meeting space, a 1,650-seat showroom, 14 restaurants, a spa and a 95,000-square-foot casino.
