General Description

The Library Hotel brings a unique concept to the world of hospitality in New York City and is a property that no book lover should ever miss. As the name suggests, the hotel is indeed organized just like a library with 10 floors arranged according to the Dewey Decimal System (the same used in most libraries over the world). You will therefore find entire floors of rooms dedicated to a specific subject and containing literally hundreds of books. The topics include social sciences, literature, languages, history, math & science, general knowledge, technology, philosophy, the arts and religion. Moreover, to allow you to share your thoughts regarding a book with other culture lovers or simply to sit back and relax with your favorite author, the hotel features two exquisite venues, a patio and lounge with their own terraces, the Poetry Garden and the Writer's Den. An exclusively appointed bar, located between the Poetry Garden and the Writer's Den, provides refreshments throughout the day and transforms into a beautiful cocktail lounge each Monday - Saturday evening. Furthermore, complimentary afternoon tea, coffee, cappuccino, espresso, cafe au lait, cookies and fruits are always available in the Reading Room. Imported champagne, fine wines and a selection of cheeses are served Monday to Saturday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wi-Fi Internet access is available in the Reading Room and in the business center, while sports lovers will enjoy free access at the nearby New York Sports Club. A meeting room for up to 12 people is located on the Penthouse level and same day dry cleaning service is also available. The first floor Madison & Vine Restaurant is the hotel's brand new American Bistro and international Wine Bar, serving lunch and dinner in a casually elegant setting.

The overall theme of the hotel was so clever and cute. Each room had its own library theme, including the books to match. The staff was hospitable and sharp. The hotel was five star, but didn't feel too modern to the point where it was impersonal--it still had that quaint feeling. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because I accidentally lifted the shower drain and there was hair in there, which totally grossed me out.

We loved the delicious breakfasts and Wine and Cheese hours in the reading room. It was fun to be able to pick out which Dewey Decimal system room we wanted -- the staff was very accommodating.

It was a great location, as we were going to the theater and it was a close walk to Times Square. It had a wonderful theme, with all the books and so on and the rooms were lovely. We were there for our anniversary and all of the desk staff wished us a happy anniversary and even left us a bottle of champagne and glasses in the room with a nice note. The roof bar was great, the continental breakfast was perfect even had espresso. I'd stay here again without a hesitation and recommend it to any friend.

Overall nice hote, but a little pricey for the size of the room. Also, elevators were broken at two different times and had to walk up three flights of stairs.
