The Dayton Grand Hotel, located downtown at Third and Ludlow streets, has closed as it undergoes renovations, an acting general manager told this media outlet today.
The 184-room hotel, which is owned by investment equity firm Hotel Capital based in Indianapolis, will be closed until at least May as it undergoes the renovation.
The acting general manager could not give an exact opening date and would not say what renovations the 120-year-old hotel will undergo.
In 2015, hotel officials announced they were undergoing $3 million to $5 million in renovations to all of its rooms and plans to rebuild its swimming pool, re-open its restaurant and convert to a Double Tree by Hilton.

The hotel did not convert to a Double Tree by Hilton and has struggled as a private hotel.
The Dayton Grand Hotel originally became a Double Tree hotel in 2013. The shift was short-lived, with the owners returning it to a private hotel, and business suffered, Eric Minshall, the general manager in 2015, told the Dayton Daily New.
“In an eight-month stretch after going back to being independent, the hotel lost 80 percent of its business,” Minshall said.
