Spent two nights last week at teh Library Hotel. In NYC for a mix of business/leisure. Picked Library based upon research/reviews on Trip Advisor. Hotel is in a good location at corner of 41st/Madison. Room was very small....but this is NYC! We stayed in a Junior Suite with a King Bed but it would have passed for a standard room (by size) in any other U.S. City (...other than New York that is). It was decorated nicely. Lobby is small/cozy but the staff behind the desk were very friendly and accomodating. Big plus! We had a drink late one evening in the rooftop bar. It was cozy and nice. Again, staff was great. I would consider staying again based on staff, location, etc.
One negative, an open bar of soap was left in shower from previous occupant. Ironic as same thing occurred last spring at Tribeca Grand Hotel in NYC! Must be part of a "Green" program on the part of NYC hotels.
