What We Love
- Being one of the first to base yourself at the Beekman 1802 partner hotel
- Taking Manhattan, one blocks-away landmark at a time
What To Know
- Some of NYC's best sights (Grand Central, Fifth Ave and Bryant Park) are steps away
- 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
The Bernic Hotel is a fantastic Boutique hotel and my “go to” for my regular business trips to NYC. The location, the simplicity of the rooms and the staff are fantastic!! Little extras like nespresso machines in all rooms and the toiletries make it special. Again, a shout out to the staff...so incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive!! I’ll be back!
We stayed in this hotel for a vacation in August and had booked 2 King Rooms with balcony of which one was booked by a HH Diamond member.
- Very clean rooms
- Very good location
- Nice staff at the front desk 9/10 times
- No free continental breakfast offered to the Diamond members we were travelling with, even though this was advertised as such.
- No recognitation of Hilton Diamond status at all.
- Very loud airconditioning in the room which made it impossible to leave it turned on during the night. With summer in NY it is safe to say the room warmed up quickly.
- The Balcony is not really a balcony. It is almost impossible to stand on with 2 people and even though it is already small, a part of it is taken up by the huge airco unit.
- We asked for a Taxi/ Towncar to the airport the night before check-out since we were with 4 people and 4 big suitcases. We were informed to request a cab 15 min before we wanted to leave in the morning. When we did so, it is safe to say it turned into a complete mess. When the cab was hauled it did not fit the luggage and since there is no doorman we had to get back inside and wait in line for the front desk in order to talk to them about a Towncar. We were then informed we should have booked one earlier, which is what we tried to do the night before when we got informed we did not need to. This whole stunt almost made us miss our flight.
- All the pictures have clearly been shot with a wide angle lens. The rooms are not nearly as big as shown. There is not enough closet space for 2 people for a week, and the toilet is crammed into the bathroom.
- The cleaning trolley was parked in the hallway of our floor for most of the week, which left very little space to squeeze past, especially with luggage.
I don’t like giving bad reviews, however, it is safe to say we will not be staying in this hotel again. It is the worst Hilton I have ever stayed in. There are better hotels in Manhattan, especially considering the price you pay for a room in this one.
Great central location for your NYC trip. Desk staff was uber friendly. Rooms are modern and well appointed. Rooftop bar is small but you do get a killer Chrysler Building view. Great shower and toiletries.
