Hotel On North – Pittsfield, MA

Hotel On North | 297 North Street | Pittsfield, MA | 413-358-4741

Hotel on North is a rich blend of Berkshire roots and cosmopolitan style. And best of all…we’re right in the center of the region.

If you’ve ever been to The Berkshires, you know that it’s not a tiny village in Massachusetts. Driving from “North County” to “South County” (that’s local lingo, by the way) can take nearly 90 minutes just because of sheer geography.

 

When we saw an opportunity to claim this pair of 19th century buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places…and transform them into a boutique hotel that captures the vibrant spirit and energy of the region…well, how could we resist?

Located on North Street in Pittsfield, we’re right smack in the center of The Berkshires…which means when you stay with us, you’re never more than 30-40 minutes away from absolutely everything the region has to offer.

Owned by Berkshire residents David and Laurie Tierney, and managed by Berkshire-based Main Street Hospitality, Hotel on North is a celebration of character in every expression. Honoring the buildings’ long heritage as the legendary menswear and sporting goods emporium Besse-Clarke, we’ve preserved and restored many architectural features that nod to another era…exposed brick walls, tin ceilings, decorative columns, and all the charming quirks that today’s newly constructed buildings just can’t embrace.

 

True, state of the art technology and modern design sit naturally inside this centuries-old setting. But that’s a testament to the loving care infused into blending historic preservation with the solutions and conveniences that allow you to live at your accustomed pace. Our public spaces and lodging have all been designed to satisfy both your sense of comfort and your sense of style.

We are grateful to the many Berkshire artists, artisans, purveyors, and entrepreneurs that have banded together to help us bring Hotel on North to life. And we’re proud to be a new milestone in Pittsfield’s cultural renaissance, refreshing its position as the urban hub of The Berkshires and helping shepherd in a new chapter in the storied legacy of the historic downtown district and Main Street community.

ROOMS:

Each one of our Berkshires hotel rooms have a different footprint, but they all share a spirit of individual design. Locally crafted, handpicked furniture and décor draws out the distinctive character of every room, and on return visits, you’ll enjoy the pleasure of discovering a new room each time. Accents of modern whimsy sit naturally beside Victorian sensibility.

Our five room categories include standard, superior, and premier rooms…some with working gas fireplaces, wet bars, and even kitchenettes with washer/dryers. Each of our 45 spacious rooms feature flat screen high-definition smart TVs, Bluetooth-enabled audio, personal coffee makers, in-room safes, free high-speed Wi-Fi, and – here’s the best part – an alarm clock that doesn’t require a PhD in physics to operate.
