Downtown Hotel to Be Unveiled

The former Huntington Town Hall will be reborn as a hotel Thursday, welcomed by a host of political and business leaders.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Huntington Supervisor Ed Smyth, along with developers George Tsunis and Ross Cassata, and members of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce will unveil the $24 million conversion of the 111-year-old building at 227 Main St. into a hotel for visitors and tourists.

The 81-room building includes a refurbished clock and bell tower.  It will open for the first time after sitting vacant in Huntington for approximately 15 years.

The Hampton Inn & Suites chain touts the hotel’s proximity to the Soldiers and Sailors memorial,  the Paramount and other highlights of Huntington.

The unveiling is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
