I visited with my husband as part of a trip celebrating our silver wedding anniversary- thanks to the Library for honouring the price from 2 years ago when we originally booked our holiday! It was so lovely to be greeted at the front desk with a cheery “welcome back Mrs Murray!” (I’d stayed before 9 years ago with our daughter.) All of the essentials are top notch- location, staff, cleanliness, amenities. Absolutely no standards have slipped from our previous visit. It says a lot that on a trip where we stayed in 4 excellent hotels, the Library was our favourite! I can’t recommend this gorgeous hotel enough- don’t hesitate to book, you won’t be disappointed! Librarians; we are already saving up for our next trip!

The place is beautiful and clean, with a lounge with complementary drinks and snacks. The rooftop bar was awesome as well as the restaurant downstairs. The guest services were excellent! We will be coming back for sure!

The staff is super friendly and willing to help. Location was pretty good - close to the office I was visiting and also close to several attractions. It was a bit challenging to find the entrance at first, but once I did, the whole experience was great. Hotel offers an amazing guest lounge, opened 24x7. Will definitely return.

The Petit Room was on the small side, but it was so perfectly laid out that it felt spacious. It was just right for one person. The library theme is charming, and I liked having a selection of books right in the room. Excellent location, a lovely rooftop lounge, and a good restaurant on the ground floor. The Library Hotel has it all.

Wonderful experience, as always. Great location and friendly staff. Super quiet room. Snacks are a plus. Bryant Park is great to sit and people watch. Love the closeness to the library. Will stay here again.

Just book it and don't look back, this hotel is a gem and WORTH EVERY PENNY My husband and I stayed here for four night during our most recent stay to NY. We LOVED it! Here are some of the highlights for us: -Luggage storage for early arrivals -2nd floor library open 24/7 that is fully stocked with waters, coffee machine, LaCroix, soft drinks, snacks and a million books -Room had all of the amenities you would need (and if it did not include something, they would bring it to you- we frequently called for more coffee). -Rooftop bar with great views, breeze and happy hour specials each night -Great location walking distance to all the sites and great restaurants! 10/10 will do it again!

Another enjoyable stay at the Library Hotel! Attentive staff. Rooms clean, comfortable and cozy. Rooftop bar is a must see. Restaurant Madison and Vine is next door, a great spot for brunch, lunch or dinner. Hotel is conveniently located on the East Side near shopping, restaurants and cafes. Bryant Park a block away. Looking forward to our next visit!

Really enjoyed the stay, great location, clean, well thought out room. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Lovely to have the restaurant, roof bar and nice lounge making you feel like the whole hotel is the executive floor. Cost is expensive, but comparable or less than similar properties. Mild issues were somewhat soft mattress; not my favorite style and that the AC system is fairly noisy, making it harder to sleep. Shame as the room was nice and quiet otherwise.

Charming hotel. Felt welcome the moment we stepped in. From the front desk to the roof top bar, all those caring for us were hospitable and gracious. Room was well appointed. Would recommend being on a top floor. Be sure to check out the roof top bar. We had yummy drinks and a wonderful server.

Most comfortable hotel bed ever, plush towels, friendly staff, great roof bar, well-stocked “reading room,” convenient location. Don’t miss the free weekend summer concerts in the evenings down the street at Bryant Park.
