“Cosy in the city”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

We stayed at the Library for a week in May and it turned out to be a perfect choice. The Queen-rooms are cosy, spacious enough and although looking out on 41th St. kept the city noise away. Most of all we enjoyed the friendly service and the possibility to relax at the lounge in the afternoon with wine and cheese. Other clear Pros are the nice included breakfast, the central location near Grand Central Station and the roof-top bar an 14th floor.
We will definitely come again.

Just an overnight stay with my wife and adult daughter while in town for an art show. The staff were all wonderful, courteous, and helpful. The hotel was spotless and the decor delightful. The 14th floor rooftop patio was great and offered a secluded and quiet view on the busy city. The continrntal breakfast and wine and cheese services were excellent and a real treat. The location couldn't be beat - withing view of the New York Public Library and close to Broadway and everything mid-town. Our room was neat as a pin and with all the anticipated ammenities. Parking was discounted at a garage two blocks away. Didn't get the chance to enjoy it but I understand guests are welcome at a local athletic club. My wife and I are librarians to boot!

Room Tip: Our suite (306 - "law") offered a big queen bed with an added sleeper sofa and large windo...

The Library Hotel was everything 3 girls could ask for in the Big Apple. The location is perfect (1 block over from 5th Ave.) and within walking distance to central park and many other attractions. But what made it for us was the service: every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful and the front desk staff went above an beyond. We were looking for a true New York experience, so we had asked a few of the staff for some dinner and night life suggestions that they themselves had been to/would recommend and were provided with lists of suggestions along with personal stories :). It made for the best experience as we were able to see New York outside the normal "tourist" areas. The rooms were also beautful with all the amenities. And the awesome included continental breakfast (with delicious New York Bagels) and evening wine and cheese just added icing to the cake. The perfect hotel for a low key big city experience. Can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms are all one king bed except for the suites, were we stayed, and have a pull out couch. Suites...
