This was our first Hotel stop on our 18day Road Trip. Although very quirky we really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The Library bar was very nice place and we even enjoyed a LIVE Jazz singer before going out one night. We had a free glass of wine on arrival but we only had one of them. The Barman was very attentive and even reminded me I still had my other glass of wine to have the next day. Breakfast was 'nice' not brilliant but adequate. It was also exactly the same on the two mornings we ate there. Would have been nice to have some different selections. All in all I would recommend this Hotel. Very good location and very near to Union Square.
