What We Love

- The restaurant and rooftop lounge have sweeping skyline views
In partnership with lifestyle brand Beekman 1802, The Bernic gives you a convenient base for exploring the bright lights and the big city. Your room is a white-tea-scented oasis with a cosmopolitan style that also references other international hubs. Whichever one of our offers you choose, you’ll also snag a private balcony, which is more than most New Yorkers can boast of their own abodes. The Deluxe Queen Balcony room is a little bigger than the Superior King Balcony option; upgrade to the Corner King Balcony for even more space. You’re also just downstairs from a rooftop lounge. Get a 360-degree view of the city from Allora, on the hotel’s rooftop. Bedecked in Carrara marble, with herringbone flooring, the restaurant and lounge serves Italian-American fare, from grilled branzino to zabaglione. Just don’t forget you’re in Midtown, which has some of the most famous restaurants in Manhattan.
In the Area
Name an iconic Manhattan landmark, and chances are that it’s within mere blocks of your room. Set in Turtle Bay, the hotel isn’t in the busiest part of Midtown (which is a good thing, when you need a full night’s sleep), but it still comes with easy access to the most famous sights. Rock Center and Radio City, Fifth Avenue and Central Park, Broadway and Times Square, Bryant Park and the New York Public Library–none of these are more than a 10- or 15-minute walk. Hungry? Take a seat at the iconic oyster bar in Grand Central Station. Thirsty? Grab a drink at the King Cole Bar, once graced by Dali and Dietrich. And if you’re simply feeling restless, the Bronx, the Battery, and every other thriving New York hub is but a breezy subway ride away.
How to Get There
This hotel is in a great location; 47th between 3rd and Lexington. Walking distance to so many great NYC locations. There are only 4 rooms per floor, so for me it was pretty quiet, which was nice. The rooms are small, but nicely situated; full sized body wash/shampoo/conditioner bottles in the shower were wonderful since I have 2 feet of hair, the small bottles never suffice for me! A great bonus for this place is it's roof top terrace on the 22nd floor. Great views of Long Island City, the UN Building, but I got kicked out for sitting up there and reading for no real reason, first I was told there was a private party starting later and when I said I would leave once the party started, I was told the roof top terrace was closed on Sundays; clearly not the case if there was a private party later, right? Oh, and Prosecco in the lobby from 5pm to 7pm for guests, so bonus for that.
I travel for business often to NYC and The Bernic is my current favorite Hilton property. The staff makes the hotel. They are friendly and accomodating. The rooms are very good for the price. The only issue is no fitness area, but they provide passes to the NY Racket Club. I recommend for businss and vacation travelers!
The Bernic was a major surprise in our trip; I received excellent comments about it previously but our experience exceeded our expectations. Lovelly personel, warm service, comfortable room, and convenient price.
I’ve left a review on this hotel before, but I feel the need to do it again. For a road warrior who stays in a multitude of hotels yearly, this is one of the few locations where I feel like I come home to. The rooms are well appointed and it’s nice to be able to have a balcony to stick your head outside. However, what makes this hotel spectacular, is the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to go the extra mile to make all customers feel welcome. 99% of hotels in the world could learn something from this one. Well done.
Highly recommend! Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I had an issue with transportation prior to arrival and the staff member was very patient in helping me navigate to the hotel. Loved my room and had an excellent night's sleep. Look forward to returning and would definitely stay here again!
