Hotel on North Quirks & Character

Throughout our journey to bring this pair of historic New England buildings back to life, we nurtured the vibrant spirit that echoes through the halls. Since the 1880’s, these buildings have always been a center for community, style, design, and social gatherings in one form or another, and the Hotel on North pays homage to that history with a fresh, modern perspective.

As you explore our Pittsfield, MA hotel, you’ll discover some quirky things that have been preserved, as well as new ones that have been added. We’ll leave you to stumble upon your own surprises, but definitely keep an eye out for…


The Gallery on North

The Gallery on North

Our own rotating exhibition of art, sculpture, photography, and other curated pieces, located just off the lobby. We collaborate with leading Berkshire gallerists to bring it to life.

This spring, the Gallery at the Hotel on North presents Jain Tarnower Paintings.

“The main part of my work has been portraiture. During the past decade most of my work has derived from my interest in both heritage breed livestock, such as black icelandic and wiltshire sheep and charolais cattle with a hope for the preservation of these animals.

More recently, my travels have introduced me to Rocky Mountain and Alaskan wild animals such as bighorn sheep and white arctic wolves. I have also been a bird enthusiast for many years, noticeable in my work.

My paintings are many layers of oil paint on canvas mounted on board. Many are full sized portraits of large animals, as large as eight feet in height. The work is both stylized and referential to things in the real world. The animals in the paintings face the viewer straight on and are very evocative.”

The Birdcage

The Birdcage

What do you do when you discover a cool, vintage birdcage elevator in the building you’re redeveloping? You turn it into a cocktail table for two, of course. Visit our Lounge with your main squeeze for a beverage in the birdcage.
