Take a Look Inside The Bernic Hotel New York City
Intrepid guests who want something more than the standard touristy fare found in Times Square will enjoy this authentic New York experience. Located in the historic Turtle Bay neighborhood, The Bernic Hotel New York City is situated in the old stomping grounds of luminaries such as Andy Warhol, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Katherine Hepburn, Bob Dylan, and Stephen Sondheim.
Nearby attractions include the United Nations building, Fifth Avenue shopping, MacArthur Park, the Beaux Arts Institute, Turtle Bay Gardens, the Roosevelt Island Tramway, the 9-11 Memorial, and, for those wanting a taste of the stage arts, Times Square’s Theater District. Grand Central Station is also nearby, an attraction in and of itself.
The Bernic Hotel New York City has 96 rooms and suites with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city. The Premier Penthouse Suite includes a living area made spacious with 23-foot ceilings and a full-sized kitchen. The king-sized bedroom also has a walk-in closet.
Rooms are decked out with the best amenities, including environmentally friendly boxed water, complimentary WiFi connectivity, pillowtop beds, luxe bedding, bathrobes, slippers, a Nespresso coffee station, mini fridge, and large flat screen HD television. A Distributed Antenna System is set up to make sure that each guest can access their cellular phone service.
As you can see, this boutique hotel caters to discerning customers who expect the best. The lighting, therefore, needs to be commensurate with the upscale offerings of the hotel.
Why PTY Custom Lighting Was Chosen for This Contract Hotel Lighting Project
PTY Custom Lighting has a lot of experience creating contract hotel lighting for four and five-star hotels of all sizes, from the best boutique hotels to large luxury chains.
To complete the custom lighting for this hotel build, we worked with Hersha Purchasing and Design and Marjian Development.
We were selected for The Bernic Hotel New York City because of our previous experience working successfully with Hersha Purchasing and Design. We were also chosen for the high quality of our portable lamps produced on previous projects.
PTY Custom Lighting provided all the guestroom lighting for the Bernic project.
Hotel Lighting with a Distinctive Urban Look
The Bernic Hotel New York City takes inspiration from mid-century modern design styles with clean lines peppered with subtle accents. Tans, browns, beiges, and greys are complimented with eye-popping blues and chartreuse.
This being a boutique hotel in the heart of New York City, some of the room sizes are smaller, requiring us to be mindful of space when designing and planning the lighting.
The available rooms come in the following categories:
- Corner One King Bed with Balcony (Sleeps 2)
- Corner King with Step Out Balcony
- One Queen Bed
- One King Bed
- One Queen Bed with Balcony (Sleeps 2)
- One Queen Bed Deluxe with Balcony (Sleeps 2)
- One King Bed with Step Out Balcony (Sleeps 2)
- Mobility & Accessible King Bed with Balcony (Sleeps 2)
- One King Studio Suite with Sofa Bed & Balcony (Sleeps 3)
- Premier Penthouse Suite
The main bedside lamps are simple yet elegant, with rectangular off-white lampshades on a simple metal base. To provide reading light above the bed without taking up more room, some headboards are equipped with small, adjustable chrome lamps. The desk areas are lit with overhead recessed lamps and include a small angular reading lamp that offers direct light when needed.
The Premiere Penthouse Suite is where we really get to “shine” (pardon the lighting pun!). One of our favorite lighting fixtures is a trio of pendant lamps hanging in the corner of the living room from the high ceiling. Spherical, with a whimsical cutout pattern and glowing orange light bulbs inside, this lamp set evokes the mystery and fun of the mod 1960’s while providing a friendly glow at the small dining table.
