We stayed at the Library Hotel in September this year and got married on the roof terrace on the 6th Sept. It was amazing and a great experience for a couple and their family & friends from Glasgow, Scotland - we couldn't have picked a better place!
We'd been to NYC a few times before, staying in the Murray Hill area and spotted the Library Hotel and decided to stay there on our next trip. The excellent reviews also helped cement our decision - we were not disappointed. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Tim and the team on reception offered advice and help throughout our stay and when my case did not arrive (arrived the day before we got married!!), Tim was most helpful, continually chasing up with the airline when I was not about. Our wedding was organised with the help of Ivana who was so helpful and supportive, prompt in all replies to our questions prior to us arriving and making sure the venue was 'just so'! Ivana met us on our arrival at the hotel and organised to show us around the venue, introducing us to the bar and restaurant staff and making sure all preparations were in order. The wedding day was so special!! On the day and evening of the wedding the staff at the roof top bar were great - helped make the day such fun!
The staff and the attention to detail at the Library is what makes the hotel excellent. Breakfast is continental but had some good choices. The free drinks and nibbles in the afternoon was a very nice touch. The attached restaurant Madison & Vine does fantastic burgers and offers the same level of great service as the hotel.
We had the most amazing trip and are planning to go back next Sept.
