A three story, 54 room hotel will be built along the south side of the Bayfront Parkway across from Liberty Park.
It will be a Cobblestone Hotel and is one of five that will be built in the area.
Tom Kennedy is behind the five hotels and is positive his hotel will be a success despite the Erie County Convention Center Authority building one and plans from Scott Enterprises to build one as well.
Construction is expected to be complete in spring or summer of 2015.
