Stayed here at the beginning of November on business. I'm not keen on the mega-hotels in midtown, where you disappear in the crowds. The Library is a really cosy alternative. Great location, good extras (nice rooms to read/work, breakfast or cocktail in - if that's a verb..) The rooms are tiny but comfortable. Surrounded by things to do, and check out the ice-skating/shopping behind the NY Library over the road -Bryant Park? - it wasn't there when I lived here in the 80s but is a fun place in the evening. Oh, and excellent service. Thank you! Will definitely return..
