BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Hampton Inn, on Route 22, is hoping to open by the end of April, and is preparing to come before the Bridgewater Township Council for a liquor license.

An attorney from the hotel spoke before the council recently, explaining the hotel's plan for 32 full time employees, and 133 rooms, broken down into 28 suites and 107 regular rooms.

The hotel is expected to bring in $138,000 per year in municipal taxes.

The hotel has already filed an application for a liquor license, and is currently going through the background check process with the police department.

According to the attorney, the hotel will not have a restaurant, but will provide complimentary breakfast. There will be no formal bar, and the public space is small because the hotel is mainly for travelers and short stay people who will be taking part in the business environment of Bridgewater.

The hotel also has a 600-square-foot meeting room and a 421-square-foot breakfast area.

The projected opening date is April 28.

The liquor license is expected to come before the township council in the coming weeks.
