The Library is a haven among the hustle bustle of NYC - quiet and friendly with a beautiful coffee lounge on the second floor where friends can meet to relax and talk. Many even hang out there solo relaxing and reading. The rooftop bar is incredible - a great way to end the evening after being out on the town.

So a cozy tucked-away in GCT area boutique hotel. Lovely 2nd floor lounge, cool roof top bar. Room was comfortable by midtown NYC standards. Staff couldn't be more professional and friendly, even by Southern standards (and I'm as jaded as NY'ers come). BUT there is no security for this hotel. My guests walked in off the street as late as midnight and onto the elevator (which is opposite the entry doors to the hotel) without any security or notice at all. Security cameras? Perhaps. Dial-a-prayer when someone's holding you at gun/knife point? You decide. Again, lovely place but this is an obvious oversight. Solutions could be even a bell-operated lock at the entrance, magnetic keypad with key fobs for guests, but do SOMETHING! Otherwise, I would return.

We still love staying here but question the daily costly 'resort' fee since they have not brought back the nice breakfast, 5 p..m. happy hour, and nightly turndown with pillow candy and room freshening that used to justify it. And if it is to justify 'free' wifi, that service needs upgrading since we could not watch basic Netflix at certain times. Also the room was too hot and the thermostat did not seem to correct this unless turned completely off and the window opened. Otherwise still our favorite although the 'petit' rooms are tiny and the daily rates fluctuate hugely and crazily from day to day, making date selection tricky to avoid the days when rates can be nearly double other dates nearby.

If you're looking for the perfect location for getting around New York, this is the place. Grand Central Station is a block away and bus stops just outside the door. The New York City Library which has a lovely small museum is a block away. Pera Mediterranean Restaurant which I highly recommend, is just around the corner. The staff are ever so helpful. There's a beautiful and spacious sitting room with coffee, tea, expresso machine and snack bars on the second floor open 24 hours a day and a cocktail lounge on the 14th floor. The rooms are newly remodeled and handsomely appointed. We will definitely rebook our next stay there.

Even under pandemic circumstances, the staff continue to be friendly and ultra-accomodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the hotel is always quiet. The Library Hotel will continue to be my hotel of choice in NYC.
