We had a superb trip to New York and stayed at the Library for six nights. The staff were helpful and welcoming and arranged a bottle of wine for our anniversary. The location here is wonderful, right on Madison Avenue and accessible to uptown attractions and Soho shopping. We stayed in one of the larger rooms overlooking Madison. I'm sure this made the room noisier than others in the hotel but the classic view of a New York streetscape down Madison from our bay window was well worth the compromise. The complimentary breakfasts in the quiet lounge on the second floor were so much better than a huge buffet in a swankier hotel.
This is a reasonably priced hotel for its amenities and I'm sure we will return.
