We stayed in the library suite with our family of 2 adults and 2 teens. I can't even describe how comfortable it was. The photo on the Inn web page shows you barely a third of the suite. Because of the size and layout, the bedroom was very private. It is quite spacious and has a second desk (one is in the living room) and reading area, so you can have a place separate from the living room that's good to work or hang out in. The pocket doors close off the front into a very spacious sleeping area with convertable couch. The center of the suite is the kitchen/dining room -- this area is a good size too, so even with the pocket doors closed it feels spacious, an impression helped by several skylights. The kitchen is very well-stocked and constantly replenished with fruit, cheeses, pastry, excellent coffee, tea, milk and other snacks, and we were even asked what else we might like. As a refreshing change from the $4 bag of chips in most minibars, there was no charge for anything. We didn't cook but the kitchen is quite well-equipped.
The suite felt like being in someone's home in that the ordinary things you might want, you had. Children's books. Adult books. Zagat. Washing machine. A few games. Umbrella rack and umbrella. After staying there you realize in comparison how stark and barren even a lovely hotel room can be.
Quiet side street in an excellent location.
Potential down side: the bedroom has only a full-size bed, so if you need a queen to feel comfortable then you'll be disappointed.
And finally, the Inn is a brownstone and doesn't have a lobby or public space. The stairs are narrow and the first impression is not grand, but once you get to your suite you won't care.
