Great location - right next to Grand Central Station. The staff were so incredibly helpful and polite and friendly. The evening wine and cheese selection was a really nice touch, that I dont think many other hotels would offer and the rooftop bar is definitely worth a visit to watch the sun go down. The restaurant attached to the hotel... More

This hotel was gorgeous. It was wonderful to get back to each evening after the hustle and bustle of a day in the city. The room was lovely with a comfortable bed. It was so good to get back to the room, to have jazz playing, it really helped you to feel relaxed. Such a quaint hotel with genuine, friendly... More

Staying at this boutique hotel is a delight. The location is wonderful and only a 15 minute walk to the theater district. The public library is right down the street as is a metro stop. The hotel offers wonderful service. The charm of the floors and public rooms is so very comfortable. I would stay here again in an instant!

We were satisfied staying in the library hotel. Near to all the most tourist spots, accomodating staff, we also like the 24/7 open kitchen for snacks. The overnight stat is quite steep, but its worth it.

Visited here with my partner and had a wonderful time! We spent some time in the Reading Room, where the service was just enough to be present without being invasive. Our room had a balcony and we loved the view! Staff was friendly and we loved how the rooms had themes!

Highly professional staff seeks to accommodate guests in every way and to welcome, a major asset. The Reading Room is a pleasant area for breakfast. The library theme in decor adds personality and warmth. The clientele of the hotel is international, some here on business and some for pleasure. The general ambience is friendly. The proximity to the New York... More

An absolutely outstanding small hotel with fantastic services, helpful and considerate staff and in a brilliant location. I have stayed there for business, to celebrate an anniversary, on holiday and with friends. It is always a wonderful experience. Close to Grand Central Station on Madison is perfect to reach all parts of Manhattan. Highly recommended

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
