Opened in November 2016, The Bernic brings new boutique accommodations to Manhattan East's historic Turtle Bay neighborhood.
Combining the neighborhood's artistic roots -- Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan and Stephen Sondheim each lived or worked in Turtle Bay -- with the latest technology, the hotel offers 4-star accommodations with a modern and funky twist.
Murals by artist-in-residence Ian Sklarsky are on display in the lobby, hallways and guest rooms. These whimsical renditions of iconic cityscapes -- inspired by the nearby United Nations -- add pops of color to the hotel's modern decor.
Each guest room has floor-to-ceiling windows; some rooms have private balconies. Chic rooms have luxe 300-thread-count bedding, flat-screen TVs with Apple TV technology, hooded bathrobes and slippers. Bathrooms feature rain shower heads, Beekman 1802 bath amenities and heated floor tiles.
The 4-star amenities are rounded out with free newspapers, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and nightly turndown service.
The rooftop restaurant, Allora, serves Northern Italian cuisine, including homemade pastas and grass-fed, 28-day aged steak. The hip venue boasts 360-degree views of New York.
Outside the door, the United Nations, Grand Central Terminal and Rockefeller Center are within a 15-minute walk.
