My girlfriend and I travelled to New York in December 2016 for her 30th birthday and wanted somewhere in a central Manhatten location so we could easily travel from place to place but also somewhere special that matched the occasion. The Library Hotel answered on both. When booking, I got in touch with the hotel reception for guidance on room...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 January 2017

The Library is my favourite hotel in the city. And it's easy to understand why: the location is great (Madison Avenue, near the Grand Central Station and Bryant Park), the staff is nice and helpful and the atmosphere makes you feel cozy and at home (and that's not easy to find in the middle of Manhattan). Beside this, the rooms...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Library hotel. All of the people who work there are very nice and the customer service was outstanding. The location is really fabulous. It is only about a block from Grand Central Sation so you can get anywhere easily. The room was very nice but we had trouble getting it cool enough even...

Our son lived in NYC for 6 years so we have made many visits to this amazing city. We have stayed in some really nice hotels but The Library Hotel is the best ever! With all the extra special touches, it didn't feel like we were staying in a hotel, it felt like we were staying with family. We will...

Recently stayed at Library Hotel, which was highly recommended to us. We were not disappointed, the staff was exceptional, very friendly and accommodating, (especially enjoyed chatting with Stephen, a fine young man), the service, rooms and amenities were above and beyond the usual hotel experience. It's in a great midtown location and look forward to our next visit. A gem...

We really enjoy staying at the Library Hotel. The location makes for easy walking to sites, shopping, or transit to get to get to other neighbourhoods. The staff is always accommodating, welcoming and friendly. We love the amenities, and for these we happily pay what some may say is "a lot" for a room. However, the lounge on the 2nd...

We recently spent 4 nights at The Library Hotel in the Biography Suite (9th Floor). From the moment we arrived we were well looked after, with the friendly staff always welcoming. The Reading Room is a gem of a place any time of day or night, with food and beverages always available. The location between Grand Central and the New...

Great place to stay! 2 blocks to Grand Central and great location. Staff was very accommodating and the breakfast and wine bar were super. Bed was comfortable and I love the decor. I'd stay there again!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

“We were on the 8th floor, probably quieter than a lower floor as the city can be pretty noisy.”
