Red Lion adds its first Leo Collection hotel, the Las Vegas Hilton

Red Lion Hotels Corp.back in January announced formation of its Leo Collection, a boutique-focused line of properties meant to appeal to the off-the-beaten track traveler.

Red Lion recently announced the first property in the Leo group. It's the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. 

The company launched the Leo on its site in time for the recent WCC Conference basketball tournament. 

Here's what's a bit odd. The Las Vegas Hilton is large.It has almost 3,000 rooms. 

When the Leo Collection was announced, one focus, according to the company, was on developing a group of boutique, smaller or historic hotels that retain their names but use Red Lion’s distribution and marketing channels.

The Red Lion hotel announcement does note the hotel apparetnly served as headquarters for Elvis Presley, Liberace and Barry Manilow.  Maybe that's what they mean by histoic? 

Hey someone at Red Lion, can you explain how the Las Vegas Hilton fits that description?
