Superb calm ambience and welcoming hosts.Excellent choice of drinks and beers. Beers were served super chilled and the appetizers were tantalizing and freshly made.Facilty was there to shift guests from the terrace to indoors when it started raining.

The Library has a really excellent location. The hotel has endless amounts of charm and style. The rooms are clean, thoughtfully designed, and has everything you need. But the reason I came here to write the review, is everyone was so nice!! Other hotels are nice but the people can be cold. This hotel the staff is genuinely just lovely people, and I felt I was lucky to stay there. Whether its the restaurant server who greeted me with such care and kindness. Or the front desk folks who let me check in super early, I was just amazed at the level of kindness. Thanks Library!

We were pleased with the hotel. Room is small, but clean and the bed was comfortable. The location is excellent and service was good. The library theme provides a good ambience and the second floor suite for breakfast and snacks is convenient. Price is a bit high but we thought this was a better value than the super high end hotels. If you are looking for a pleasant alternative to the super high end hotels, this is a good alternative.

Good location and cute idea for my daughter who loves books. The hotel is old and feels very small, cramped and expensive. The floor plan layout wastes space on unnecessary hallways and even in the suite it felt cramped for two people. People were nice and it was clean but felt very overpriced for the product provided.

Hello IGR2021, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Our hotel is a turn of the century building that is very narrow and offers very difficult schematics in the architectural design. As most New York City hotels struggle for space, we tried to optimize the space of the building to our best advantage to give all of our guests a great experience. We hope that your daughter enjoyed some of the over 6,000 books that we have on property, along with the hospitality of our wonderful Guest Service Agents. Best Regards, Justin Scimeme Sales Manager

This is a beautiful hotel centrally located, good room size and very clean. We enjoyed the rooftop every night we were there. Every room has a different theme with its own books for us to enjoy. We were not thrilled with the restaurant but I will not take points out of our hotel experience.
