“Our stay at the library hotel”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

This was a great boutique hotel
It lived up to all expectations, especially the afternoon drinks and snacks, a great way to relax after a day out.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Then location was fantastic.

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

Rooms were cosy though a bit small. Very attentive and friendly staff. The lounge on the 2nd floor was really great and came in handy when needing a hot drink and something to snack on late in the night. And what's best is its location where walking down to Time Square, to 34th street and even to 59th street street all very manageable.

Everything about this hotel was great, food, staff, room (small but perfect), location, cleanliness, roof garden/bar. We could not say enough about it and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We had a double queen room and knew that it was relatively small at time of booking. However, while...

We chose The Library Hotel based soley on the tripadvisor reviews. I'm extremely pleased with our descision. Yes, it's expensive so is everything else in NYC. I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for and we got plenty for our $.
There are books everywhere! We are book lovers so we were thrilled!! It's just a wonderful place.
Everyone is very pleasant and helpful. They make you feel special. We were celebrating both my daughters birthdays and the little extras that were left in the room made their day.
Our room was plenty big enough for three people. We stayed in a Junior Suite. There was a king sized bed and a sofabed in it. The bedding was comfortable and we all slept well. The bathroom was spacious and modern. Everything was extremely clean. The hotel is very quiet like a library.
Breakfast is included with your stay. We found the breakfast very good. You can also get drinks and light snacks throughout the day. Do not miss the wine & cheese served everyday from 5-8! It was amazing!
I found the location to be perfect. It's far enough away from the craziness of Times Square yet not too far. It's only one street away from shopping on 5 th Ave.
The Library Hotel is our new "go to" destination when staying in NYC and we will surely be back.

Room Tip: We had a corner suite. It was wonderful.
