Downtown Dayton Hotel Closes

The Radisson Hotel in downtown Dayton, Ohio – formerly the Crowne Plaza – has closed “for the foreseeable future,” according to local news reports. For many years, the hotel hosted DX and contest dinners and hospitality suites during the Dayton Hamvention®. According to the Dayton Daily News, the hotel was sold to a Florida-based company last year and the Downtown Dayton Partnership had been working closely with hotel management for over a year “to develop a strategy to ‘reposition’ the property,” but that neither the business group nor the city had been given any additional information. Both the contest and DX dinners had previously relocated.
