The Bernic, a new hotel located at 145 East 47th Street, is slated to open in Midtown Manhattan East this winter. The interior and exterior designs were done by Hersha Purchasing & Design and C3D Architecture.
The glass and gunmetal façade will be divided into two volumes. The base will follow street line, while the upper portion of the building will have a different feel. There will also be outdoor balcony terraces.
The 21-story boutique hotel in Manhattan will have 96 guestrooms including a luxury-level penthouse suite, virtually all of which will be outfitted with balconies. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer views of the city’s skyline. Each guestroom will have bath amenities by Beekman 1802, an iron and ironing board, an in-room safe and in-room refreshment bar.
Amenities at the property will include wireless connectivity in-room and throughout public spaces, accelerated cellular service through a Distributed Antenna System, in-room cordless phones and 43-inch flat screens with Apple TV technology.
The Bernic commissioned Ian Sklarsky as mixed media artist-in-residence. Sklarsky will produce murals that depict iconic cityscapes.
For dining, the property will have the Allora restaurant and rooftop skylounge from Elio & Sons, coming in spring of 2016. Allora will be a 1,600-square-foot, 72-seat restaurant and its rooftop skylounge will offer guests and patrons a 360-degree view of the city. Allora will have a carrera marble bar and herringbone floors.
The property – to be managed by Marshall Hotels and Resorts – will be located near the United Nations Headquarters, Fifth Avenue, Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center and Times Square Theater District.
