We spent a wonderful seven nights at The Library hotel on our first trip to NYC. This was a real treat for us, which we had saved up for for some time, and we were not disappointed.
The room was very clean, comfortable and attractive. The breakfasts were delicious, and a real bonus as we found many hotels in the same price bracket do not include breakfast. The complimentary cheese and wine reception (including prosecco!) was excellent and we enjoyed it every night before heading out. The reading room in which the wine and breakfast is served is beautiful and relaxing.
The free WiFi is another great bonus. The signal was a little weak in our tenth floor room, but fine in the reading room.
The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. We felt comfortable and at home despite the hotel being an expensive treat for us; I think I would have felt out of place in some other hotels in the same price range. The hotel has plenty of character and is in an excellent location - we walked to many of the main tourist sites, and Grand Central is just around the corner for longer trips.
Book a stay - you won't be disappointed!
