How to Get an Upgrade Using Red Lion Hotel Rewards

If you're trying to find out about the program and everything it offers, you've come to the right place. We'll explain everything about it, including how to cash in on all the benefits and upgrades that come with being a member.

When you book a stay at any Red Lion hotel, you are eligible to join its Hello Rewards program. This program offers members-only discounted rates, room upgrades, and other exclusive offers. It can be confusing, however, to find out what rewards you are eligible to redeem, and how to do this.

How the Red Lion Hotel Rewards Program Works

The Red Lion Hello Rewards program offers members up to a 20% discount on rates, plus other perks, from the moment you join. Instead of a point system, Hello Rewards offers these benefits:

Hello RatesLower rates for members.
Hello BucksEarn 10 'hello bucks,' or more, to use toward a qualifying stay.
Hello PerksExtra benefits include free WiFi, digital gift cards, dining vouchers, and more.

Hello Rewards Red Lion: What Hotels Are Connected?

If you are a member of Hello Rewards Red Lion, the hotels connected to this rewards program include eight different brand names with over 900 locations across the U.S. and Canada.

RLH Corporation operates a group of hotels with different brand names, including Red Lion Hotels. Each has numerous locations. Travelers may be unaware of every hotel brand name that the company owns, and that they range in style from budget to upscale.

Here are all the RLH Corporation brands and Red Lion Hotels connected to the Hello Rewards program:

  • Red Lion Hotels
  • Red Lion Inn & Suites
  • Hotel RL
  • Signature Inn
  • GuestHouse Extended Stay
  • Americas Best Value Inn
  • Canadas Best Value Inn
  • Knights Inn

Hello Rewards Members Get Discounts From Partner Brands

As a Hello Rewards member, you are also eligible for discounts from other brands and services. The Red Lion Hotel Rewards' partner brands include car rental companies, such as Enterprise and National, plus food delivery apps like GrubHub, and other services.

To get a discount or earn Hello Bucks when you place an order with a Hello Rewards partner brand, you'll have to use a promo code. You will find these promo codes, as well as links to partner offers, on the RLH Corporation website and the Hello Rewards app. Keep in mind that the email address you use to place an order with a partner brand must match the email address you use to log into your Hello Rewards account.

How to Find Your Red Lion Hotel Rewards Program Benefits

As a Hello Rewards member, you will keep earning Hello Bucks with every stay. Plus, you'll have access to free upgrades and other perks. Many travelers, however, don't take advantage of all these benefits.

If you're a Red Lion Hotel Rewards member, there are so many different types of savings offered at other places, so it isn't easy to keep track. Sometimes, you'll even be able to get a free hotel room. Don't miss out! Let DoNotPay help you redeem the benefits you deserve.

How to Get Free Upgrades on Your Own

Here are several ways to find the Hello Rewards member benefits that you are entitled to:

  1. Create an account, with a password, on the RLH Corporation website. Or, download the Hello Rewards app. Create an account, log in with your password, and look for the member benefits section.
  2. Follow @myhellorewards on social media to hear announcements about "surprise rewards" that Red Lion offers.
  3. After you make a reservation, contact customer service through the website or app to reach the hotel manager. Call, email, chat, or text to ask if any free upgrades or other benefits are available to you as a Red Lion Hotel Rewards member.

Remember to ask about all types of upgrades and benefits that Red Lion Hotels offers. In addition to room upgrades, you can ask for a dining credit, a spa service, free parking, and more. Also, it is still possible to get an upgrade at a sold-out hotel.

A hotel manager usually has the authority to approve all upgrade requests--all you have to do is ask. Or, let DoNotPay contact the hotel for you.

Next Steps if You Have No Luck Doing This Yourself

Don't miss out on the available benefits and discounts, even when you're not having any luck on your own. Tasks like writing a hotel room upgrade letter don't come easy for most people, so don't stress. Enlist the help of DoNotPay to contact hotel managers on your behalf, and the process will be effortless.

DoNotPay knows all the hotel upgrade secrets -- and all you need to do is provide a few details. You won't have to log in to different websites or download any apps. You can also rest easy knowing you won't miss out on any fun perks or valuable upgrades that the program offers.
