First thing people ask, is where are you staying? Our answer for the last seven years has been The Library Hotel. It is located a few blocks between all the major subway lines - about five minutes from Grand Center. Theater District is less than a 15 minute walk.Service is attentive and pleasant. The wine reception with cheese and snacks...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 January 2017

The Library is my favourite hotel in the city. And it's easy to understand why: the location is great (Madison Avenue, near the Grand Central Station and Bryant Park), the staff is nice and helpful and the atmosphere makes you feel cozy and at home (and that's not easy to find in the middle of Manhattan). Beside this, the rooms...

Stay here and you will not be disappointed in any way! We stayed in one of the (designated) small rooms which is adequate and even better than many UK hotel rooms that we have used over the years. Staff are polite, attentive and understanding (especially when I thought I had lost my UK keys). Service is exceptional, from the staff...

New York is a city of skyscrapers and traffic sounds but right at the center of this urban storm is a special place, a secret sanctuary. The Library Hotel is a world within a world. It combines class, comfort and great service with genuine warmth and good will - what a combination! It's modern and yet it has an old...

We booked the Library hotel due to its reviews and location and it didn't disappoint. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good with plenty of choice for continental and we love the complementary wine and cheese between 5-8. Our room was a little smaller than we were expecting however it had everything we needed.

This was our first visit to NYC and was for a mini-moon trip straight after our wedding. My husband booked the Library hotel based on its location and current reviews...they did not disappoint! The hotel is set in a fantastic location close to Grand Central Station and Times Square. The staff could not be more welcoming, friendly and attentive. A...

I've stayed at the Library Hotel before, and will be staying there again in a few weeks. I already like the great location (close to theaters, but not too close), roof deck, breakfast room, and of course the charming bookish theme. What stood out this time is the attentiveness of the service. I called the hotel in advance of my...

I really satisfied the stay at the Library Hotel last week. I like the uniqueness of the hotel that created and love the room has a collection of books from certain category. One thing I like the most is the 24 hours cookies, fruits and coffee provided by hotel on second floor. That's a great place to recharge my energy....

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
