I stayed at the Library a number of years ago and was quite satisfied, so decided to come back on a recent visit to NYC...the Library was still as pleasant as I remembered, albeit our room ('botany--500.04') was quite small. Great location, steps from Grand...More
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here the week before Christmas! The hotel is conveninently located within walking distance of most attractions! They offer a complimentary happy hour with wines, prosecco, cheeses, olives, crackers, fruit, etc that was delicious!! The staff were super friendly...More
This was just right for us, allowing us to walk nearly everywhere we went, and feel like we were in an intimate setting without the too-close-quarters feeling of a smaller B&B inn. The $25/day parking deal for our car was a nice plus, too. As...More
This intimate midtown hotel is marvellous.
A great location for accessing all areas of NY. The staff are extremely welcoming, helpful and thoughtful.
It's small and cosy, a wonderful retreat at the end of the day including complimentary proseco, soft drinks and snack food.
The service at this small hotel is utterly fantastic, on a par with the finest hotels in the world. The concept of rooms with the themes of the corresponding card catalog number is innovative and interesting. The rooms are on the small side, like most...More

TripAdvisor is proud to partner with Booking.com, Hotwire, Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Priceline, Hotels.com, Agoda and Cancelon so you can book your Library Hotel by Library Hotel Collection reservations with confidence. We help millions of travelers each month to find the perfect hotel for both vacation and business trips, always with the best discounts and special offers.
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.
There are shuttle services from the airports but not to the hotels. You should check the airports' sites to know the schedules, gates and where is located their destination.

Hi Mary B,
Unfortunately, the Library Hotel does not have any rooms with two beds. However, it is possible to reserve a "Family Unit." which would require you to book two separate rooms: one Deluxe Room with One King Bed (275 sq ft with one king size bed) and one Junior Suite (350 sq ft with one king size bed and pullout sofa bed). These two rooms would be adjoining with a common exterior door. Please let us know in your reservation that you will need a Family Unit.
All of our sister hotels (Hotel Giraffe, Hotel Elysee, and Casablanca Hotel) have a limited amount of rooms with two double beds so we encourage you to look at their availability as well!
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
