I've previously stayed in the sister hotel (Library Hotel, also excellent) and went for this hotel in the hope of something new and also equivalent good service. No regrets on the choice, enjoyable stay in a good easy to access location in Midtown. Clean, pleasant, good service. Furthermore we made a few challenges for the hotel on room changes, date changes etc and never got any hassle or issues back, which isn't always the case when dealing with hotels.
My one complaint is that being in a balcony room low down on one night, I had some issues when sleeping on a lower level with noise coming through the balcony doors. Its inevitable with the loose sealing large doors that you will get some noise getting through late at night - its not the hotels fault, but its annoying when you have 20 minutes of a late night bin lorry working away on crunching rubbish again and again and again....a regular occurance in NYC. If you are sensitive to noise like I am get a high up room or a non-balcony room (or look at their sister hotel the Library Hotel). My travel companion was less of a light sleeper and was happy on the 2nd floor so its a case of your milage may vary.
Speaking of the sister hotel - this one is better looking on the outside, has the balcony rooms, and maybe a slighter nicer internal decor.
