          Stayed here on business for the second time, a perfectly nice stay. The location is convenient for work but Union Square can be kind of loud and touristy. Overall a comfortable stay. I especially appreciated the air conditioning unit!

          Funky,historic library feel of this renovated boarding house. We loved the art throughout and the comfortable lobby and restaurant. Comfortable beds. Staff were accommodating in allowing us to keep bags and car in valet for the remainder of our visit the last day.

          I love The Rex. Good bottomless coffee for free all morning. A glass of wine every evening. And everyone so helpful and friendly! Needs a good cleaning but I'll happily return. Location is good and library bar fantastic!
