The Hyatt Place/East End Hotel

Photos & Story by:  Andrew Wargo


The recent July opening of the Hyatt Place East End Hotel in Riverhead, N.Y. is a major step in the ongoing metamorphosis of the "Riverhead Renaissance".  The hotel is the vision of Jimmy Bissett and Joe Petrocelli.  Over a decade ago, Jimmy first built a marina off the river, and then because of his love of aquariums as a child and boy growing up he wanted to bring an aquarium to Riverhead.  After meeting with banks and particularly John Kanas of the North Fork Bank who expressed a mild reception for the idea, Jimmy joined forces with Joseph Petrocelli who had a major contracting firm and together they financed the aquarium and exhibition center themselves.  The L.I. Aquarium opened in 2000 and has become a major east end attraction with over 100,000 visits annually.

Many of the visitors expressed their desire to house a hotel where they could spend a few days visiting the beaches, kayaking and canoeing, shopping outlets, golf courses, fishing, u-pick farms, visiting the many wineries and quaint farms all along the North Fork to Orient Point and of course also the South Fork, The Hamptons and Montauk Point.  Jimmy and Joseph approached the Hyatt about doing the joint venture and once they had an agreement they broke ground and in months opened Hyatt Place to rave reviews.

The Hyatt has 100 rooms, and indoor and outdoor pool, a weight room and a snack bar restaurant.  Both Jimmy and Joseph enjoy what they do and their enthusiasm is inspiring to both the staffs of the hotel and the aquarium.  They have just added a colorful live Butterfly exhibit with plants and flowers.  It has over 200 butterflies flying around and above your head.  It is definitely "a Kodak moment".  The room next to it is filled with 50 exotic and colorful small parrots that also fly around and create a delightful experience.

The grand banquet hall and party rooms are in construction and will be ready for mid-fall 2011 events.  The front entrance has superb arches that reminds one of the Doge's Palace in Venice with a 2 storied arcade of arches on the ground floor and on the parallel 2nd floor, and they are being finished with glorious blue mosaic tiles within the arches - it is truly stunning and filled with panache inspired by classicism.

Jimmy Bissett and Joseph Petrocelli have a close and profound association and love for perfection that follows the maxim "Carpe Diem" (Seize the Day).  Bravo, Bravo ...
