The iconic Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge could be opening another hotel in the pioneer valley.
Main Street Hospitality Group, which owns the Red Lion Inn, confirmed that they are looking to open a hotel in Springfield.
The group’s CEO said they are looking to find the right project in the city, and add to the new landscape currently taking shape in Springfield.
One South Hadley resident said the notoriety of the Red Lion Inn is sure to attract people to a new property in Springfield.
“I think the Red Lion Inn is absolutely iconic,” Dawn Kessell told 22News. “Everybody knows it, it’s a destination point. So I think bringing it to Springfield is an excellent idea.”
Main Street Hospitality Group said they are in discussion with “a number of different groups” as they work to find the right project in the city.
