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 Central. Front desk staff very courteous and attentive. If you check in on foursquare, you get a complementary bottle of wine. Plus, a fan of the wine and cheese hour in the Reading Room (free) and breakfast (free). The room was ~$340 around the holidays. There is a great selection of top movies that can be borrowed also, in addition to the books in the room if you're interested in your room's 'topic' (based on the library catalog system)
