Book lover or not, you will enjoy this unique boutique hotel in the heart of NYC. It is brilliant how they have worked a library system into the accommodations, service is over the top, the rooms are impeccable and oh so quiet for a mid city hotel. Michelle and Amaan were extremely helpful in guiding us to restaurants during restaurant week. I cannot say enough about this gem of a hotel! The complimentary wine reception was more than my husband and I expected and the breakfast was very, very good as continental's go. Check-in was a breeze. The Writer's Den offered the perfect cocktails but unfortunately, it was too cold to venture out on the terrace. My husband and I will have to return when the weather turns to take full advantage of the terrace and the view it affords. I have stayed at many, many top class hotels but I have to say this one has the cozy niche that you sometimes look for. I would highly recommend it to anyone. There was a mix of business, couples and leisure guests, so I would not be inclined to say it is for one group or another. I would, however, not recommend this for families with small children.
