According to the complaint, Hotel Dayton retained BELFOR to perform emergency-remediation services following vandalism to the property in March 2019 and last performed work on the property on May 27, 2019.
The former Dayton Hotel had been a longtime eyesore and was damaged by the Memorial Day tornadoes. The hotel at 2301 Wagner Ford Road — previously branded a Holiday Inn and later Ramada Plaza — had been in limbo for about a decade, sold off in a 2010 tax lien sale and repurchased more recently by a new owner intent to reopen it before the storm.
Instead, the hotel was badly damaged during the Memorial Day tornadoes and demolition of the Harrison Twp. property began late last year.
It is now complete.

In the conclusion of the lawsuit, BELFOR asks the court to award it the owed money plus interest, attorney fees and that it finds a lien claim on the property by BELFOR as valid.
