My partner and I went to this hotel at the end of june.
We stayed there for 9 nights.
Location: The library Hotel as a perfect location, it is closed to Grand central station, in the center of Manhattan (42nd/Madison Avenue), it is really easy to go wherever you want to and we appreciated it. It was our first time in New York and we walked a lot, had so many things to do, the location was important.
Hotel: If you don't like being in big hotels like Hilton etc...the library hotel is perfect, this is a boutique hotel, limited number of rooms, the hotel is not noisy.
We booked the small room..so yes it's not a loft but in New York usually you don't spend your time in your hotel room.
However the room was really clean, everyday, we got some bottles of water and some weather info every time we were back in the room. The bed linen is really good as well.
This hotel is not noisy at all but very nice because the terrace on the rooftop is great, you can have a drink or even your breakfast in the morning up there.
Breakfast: The breakfast was included in our package, in the first floor they have a kind of living room where you can relax every time you want, the breakfast in the morning is really good and at any time on the day, you can have some hot/cold drinks and some pastries.
From 5 to 8 you can have some cheese and wine for free every day.
Service: One of my favourite part, the service was really great, I remember Eric at the reception.
But everyone was very nice, very professional, they do all their best to make you feel really comfortable, we have nothing to say about their service, it was perfect and i cnan tell you that the service is one of our most important criteria.
We really enjoyed this hotel, and if we go back to nyc, we will stay there again without hesitating.
This is a boutique hotel, really charming, the atmosphere is nice and relax, and when you walked all the day, you are happy to get back in your little paradise in the heart of manhattan
