Feb. 26, 2008 - HARRISON TWP., Montgomery County -- Dayton Executive Hotel, a 253-room hotel on Needmore Road, will go up for auction in April, according to a news release.

Bidding on the hotel will start at $1.75 million at the April 17 auction, according to Sheldon Good & Co., a Chicago-based auctioneer.

The hotel, which once operated as a Best Western, sits at the intersection of Interstate 75 and Needmore Road, the press release states.

According to Montgomery County records, Dayton Lodge Ltd., based in Southfield, Mich., bought the hotel in 1997 for $1.7 million. The hotel, which remains in operation, includes about 59,000 square feet of space, property records state.
