The Library Hotel has mastered the art of providing guests with all the comforts and amenities of a classy hotel with the intimacy and privacy of feeling "at home." The staff is attentive, discreet and kind. The room was immaculately clean and incredibly sound-proof. In the cozy seclusion of our room, we did not hear a footstep, a voice or a door opening and closing at any time of day or night. The second floor reading room where breakfast and afternoon wine/cheese are served is exceptionally pleasant. We looked forward to stopping back at the hotel in the middle of the day just to relax for a few moments en route to the next activity - it is that pretty a spot. Even after many years staying at hotels in Paris, Istanbul and Madrid, and so on, I have never loved a place enough to write a review, but this hotel is special news. The bed was super comfortable and the turn-down service in the evening was charming. I was traveling with my daughter for her 11th birthday, and every staff person we encountered wished her a happy birthday and treated her as if her birthday was a special occasion in the hotel. Thanks to the graciousness and enthusiasm of the staff, it is a birthday we will always remember. I can't find adjectives that are glowing and emphatic enough to describe the Library Hotel...but I absolutely cannot wait to go back.
