Hilton Hotel proposal goes to public hearing Monday night in Patchogue


It’s likely be standing-room only tonight at Patchogue Village Hall as a hotel proposal that has divided the community heads to a public hearing.

The Village Board meeting starts at 6 p.m, and the hotel is at the top of the agenda.

The plans call for 56 king rooms, 50 double queens, 10 hotel suites, and 14 two-bedroom and two one-bedroom apartments, large event spaces, a spacious gym, and a rooftop restaurant and bar featuring a 3,000-square-foot outdoor seating area open to the public.

All as a Tempo by Hilton-brand hotel complex.

The property’s shuttered bowling alley, Bowl Long Island, which the Eggert family closed permanently in November 2021, would be razed.

The last hearing related to the hotel proposal at the former Bowl Long Island property went before the village Planning Board in February, when some residents express their beliefs that the hotel would bolster the village’s already economically and culturally vibrant downtown, and clean up what’s not a blighted property.

Still others posed questions and concerns regarding their environmental and traffic impacts, which Planning Board chairperson John Rocco said would be entered into the public record and eventually addressed via studies should the proposed hotel continue along a standard approval process.

The Planning Board went ahead and recommended the necessary the zone change to allow the project to move forward, though that now kicks the proposal to the Village Board to act upon.
