Atlantic City usually gets all the love when it comes to hotels in New Jersey (though occasionally we've seen some action down in Hoboken too). Now, the Hudson Reporter has tipped us off to a new "upscale" hotel that will be housed inside an old bank from the 1920s in Jersey City, about twenty minutes from lower Manhattan.

Though, as nice as the place looks on the outside, there is apparently plenty of work to be done before it begins to remotely resemble anything upscale. All businesses were ordered to vacate the building last year when it was declared hazardous and unsafe—the only remaining current tenants include a Subway and a Dunkin' Donuts on the ground floor.

Uh, can you say 'fixer-upper?'
