My review is a bit late. We stayed at the Library hotel for a week at the end of May 2013. If you are willing to pay a little bit more than the budget hotels but don't want to completely go over the top then I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included in your rate and the breakfast was great - continental type breakfast, with cereals, pastries, bagels, fruit etc.
The room was nice, reasonably sized for NYC, cleaned twice a day I think, with the towels changed twice daily (? - if my memory serves me right, then this isn't doing much for the environment and maybe the hotel should think about changing this). Overall the hotel is kept clean.
The daily wine and cheese event is great. The wine is fantastic and so are the cheeses.
The location is perfect for exploring NYC. Its close enough to subway, attractions including Times Square, but also far enough to not be overwhelmed with all the tourists.
Fantastic little hotel.
