The proposal for a brand-new hotel in Bayonne was approved by a unanimous City Council vote. Part of the redevelopment plan for the shopping plaza South Cove Commons, the new hotel will overlook the Scottish links course of the Bayonne Golf Club. South Cove Commons is located off Route 440 at LeFante Way and currently includes anchor tenants Stop & Shop, TJ Maxx, Frank Theatres South Cove Stadium 12, Houlihan’s, and over a dozen other retail tenants across 225,000 square feet.

Alessi Development Company is heading up the project plan, which also includes an 80-unit residential building, new office space, an updated traffic pattern within the plaza, and a new commercial building in addition to the hotel. “[The development company] is redoing the whole thing. They’ll add a facelift to the whole area,” said Council President Sharon Nadrowski during the City Council meeting.

According to the developer’s website, they are working with Hilton and the new hotel will be 120 rooms, conveniently located across from the Caribbean Cruise Line Cape Liberty Terminal. “Businesses like the advancement of trying to do more on the property and we are all welcoming the hotel, office and residential unit. It should be a good project,” said city planner Sue Mack.

This will be the first hotel in Bayonne besides The Hudson Plaza Motel on Route 440 in the northwest part of the city.

  1. What are a the chances of there being at least one bicycle rack included in this new redevoped shopping center? If the present is any indication, ZERO.

  2. The 34 th st lightrail is already packed with buses coming from Staten Island . The hotel and the cruise ships should supply transportation to Jersey City Exchange Placs and Grove street stations . Something needs to be done for people going to work via the lightrail. Or have them go after rush hour to Jersey City . I already see people from the cruise on the lightrail. It’s packed no matter what time I leave! What is the solution now for the extra people taking the lightrail?

  3. If there is a hotel will there be transportation to Jersey City besides the lightrail which is extremely packed with people from Staten Island and the cruise ships. Both the cruise port and the hotel should have transportation to accommodate them. I have to take the train the opposite way to get a seat. As a taxpayer I shouldn’t have to do that. What are the plans for the extra commuters for all the new development? ?

  4. Everyone complains about it So close the cruise ship and the terminal
    Then watch your town wither and die
    All those people you hate so much spend money day in and day out in Bayonne
