Wonderful boutique hotel with the best location close to shopping, the theater district and the train station. Amazingly friendly and helpful staff. Very comfortable rooms and a dynamite "concierge style" floor for all guests for breakfast, afternoon coffee (wish the cappuccino maker was working!) and more. Enjoyable rooftop bar with views but packed each time we went. We would definitely...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 9, 2017

The Library is my favourite hotel in the city. And it's easy to understand why: the location is great (Madison Avenue, near the Grand Central Station and Bryant Park), the staff is nice and helpful and the atmosphere makes you feel cozy and at home (and that's not easy to find in the middle of Manhattan). Beside this, the rooms...

I am not sure why it has taken so long to write a review, but I found this hotel perfect. The staff were friendly and warm, the rooms were lovely and I still miss the bagels. The concept for the hotel is so charming and the location is so convenient. I would love to stay here again and highly recommend...

Library Hotel is special! I've stayed in many hotels in Manhattan, and Library Hotel goes right to the top of my list. The staff is so friendly, they will set newcomers at ease. The wine and cheese gathering is a real treat - I started to look forward to it at the end of each day, and the hours are...

I can only scratch the surface to reveal how fabulous this hotel and its employees are! My friends and I were celebrating my bday & also rode the 5 Boros bike ride, so we were looking for a central location. This is a beautiful boutique hotel just a stone's throw from the NY Library and Grand Central station. The staff...

We love your hotel, the service was exquisite as was the rooftop bar.. Only thing I would change is to very the offerings at breakfast and in the evening on the second floor. We stayed with you for 5 days and by the last day, we were ready for a change. Other than that, we would return in a heartbeat.

My husband and I stayed 10 days at this charming boutique hotel that is filled with books with every room having a different topic, so that you really felt like in a real library! The rooftop bar is amazing, every night they offer a free wine and cheese reception with olives, fresh fruits, prosecco and crackers and there is free...

Very charming, clean and cosy hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location for a city trip. Nice roof top bar. Very good beds. There was a block around the corner under construction currently, which was somewhat disturbing. But we had a very pleasant stay at the Library hotel.

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.
