Radisson Hotel closure only temporary, officials say

DAYTON — Dayton’s largest hotel is now closed, but its owners are saying its only temporary.

The Radisson, formerly known as the Crown Plaza on Fifth Street, has been a critical piece of the Dayton Convention Cent redevelopment block. In late October, it was announced that the hotel would be closing.

Sandy Gudorf, president of the Downtown Dayton Partnership, told News Center 7 last week that while the announcement was disappointing, she and her colleagues has worked with the hotel owners for the last year on a strategic reposition of the hotel.

On Thursday, a spokesperson for the Downtown Dayton Partnership said the hotel temporarily closed at the end of October “while the hotel undergoes significant renovations.”

“The owners of the hotel, LW Dayton LLC and its affiliate Lockwood Development Partners LLC, know that the hotel is an important amenity to the Dayton Convention Center and downtown and we look forward to reopening the upgraded hotel once all renovations are complete,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
