All the good reviews are spot on. Just had 6 nights here, great staff, great room, location is right by grand central station with easy access to everything. Free wifi, free wine every evening. It also has a great rooftop bar.

I stayed here for a few nights in Sept 2012. Location can't be beat for business, just a couple of blocks from Grand Central. It's a nice hotel, well finished and with polite & helpful staff.

Obviously, it being NYC, the rooms were a little smaller than comfortable and there was street noise. The breakfast area also has some ergonomic issues with the area where food is kept hard to move around in + also right in front of the staff replenishment door.

Overall, though, I am nitpicking and this was a great stay. The rooftop bar is also a nice feature. The overall standard of the hotel is high.

I still feel excited when I think about our stay at the library hotel. I cannot image what more you could want from a hotel. We were in a junior suite with views up and down Madison Avenue. Room was spacious and was perfect for our daughter and ourselves. The service,from the first encounter with reception, was flawless. The reading room was perfect for a rest from walking the NY streets. Brekky was good , fresh and plentiful and the late afternoong drinks a great way to relax.
For us it was a 12/10 hotel. Thank you and congrats to the staff for style and service.

We had a lovely stay at the Library Hotel. This was a little 'date' holiday for my husband and I - just to get away for a couple of days between business trips and family duties. The staff were great in helping us get settled into the room and in finding places to eat and visit while we were there. The location was perfect for getting trains and the metro to locations around the city and to get to the airport shuttles. Each floor of the hotel is a subject area like you find in the library and the rooms are refinements of the subject area - we were on the Technology floor in the Health & Beauty room - good fun. The room was very nice and well supplied with books as well as sleeping and laving supplies - we especially liked the extra towels.

Two minor issues: only one elevator seemed to be running in the morning and, since the elevators are small, in some cases we had to wait for the second elevator or take the steps (which is what we tended to do). We tried to meet a friend at the roof-top-bar but we could find each other due to the crowds. We ended up texting each other and meeting at our room instead.
