This was my first trip to NY and this hotel far surpassed my expectations. The service was excellent. You can call down 24/7 for anything you may need and the staff is friendly and attentive. I appreciated the free bottles of water and dvd's that were available throughout our stay. The reading room was a great place to relax from...

Very good location, excellent and friendly service, everything to make you feel comfortable and welcome.

We had a queen deluxe room and although it is very nice and well...

Wonderful small hotel with great amenities and helpful staff. Very convenient to Grand Central on a relatively quiet street. Ample continental breakfast and evening wine and cheese. Would stay again - enough said. Restaurant connected to it was also a good choice for us before heading back home. We had a late lunch at about 4:00 pm which was very...

We recently spent five nights in Manhattan and, after a lot of research, decided to stay at the Library Hotel. We wanted to find a boutique hotel with personalized service and we were not disappointed. We selected a queen deluxe room, as we are aware of the diminutive nature of midtown basic hotel rooms. It was good-sized (by Manhattan standards)...

This hotel presents a difficult choice: a reasonable (for New York) rate and a very small room and smaller bed; or a larger rate for a larger room. The staff is great; the location convenient; and the breakfast nice. Before staying here again, I would look hard at other hotels offering better value.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel early in the morning. We though we would have to leave our luggage at the hotel and come back later in the day because I was sure our room wouldn’t be ready that early. But to my surprise, they had our room ready for us at 6:00 in the morning!! It was...

The Library hotel was a fabulous place to wait out Hurricane Sandy. What was originally a 3 night business trip quickly became a week's mandatory holiday. The staff at the Library Hotel are professional, friendly and helpful. Due to the storm and flight cancellations, we extended my stay twice. Nothing was too much trouble for those at the desk, especially...

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.
