“Perfect New York Style”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The Library Hotel was everything 3 girls could ask for in the Big Apple. The location is perfect (1 block over from 5th Ave.) and within walking distance to central park and many other attractions. But what made it for us was the service: every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful and the front desk staff went above an beyond. We were looking for a true New York experience, so we had asked a few of the staff for some dinner and night life suggestions that they themselves had been to/would recommend and were provided with lists of suggestions along with personal stories :). It made for the best experience as we were able to see New York outside the normal "tourist" areas. The rooms were also beautful with all the amenities. And the awesome included continental breakfast (with delicious New York Bagels) and evening wine and cheese just added icing to the cake. The perfect hotel for a low key big city experience. Can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms are all one king bed except for the suites, were we stayed, and have a pull out couch. Suites...

We have wanted to stay at this hotel for a couple of years and this year we stayed there for my birthday. They had wine and chocolates, along with a birthday card, waiting in the room when we arrived, which was the JK suite (they gave a free upgrade because it was my birthday!). Amazing view of the ny public library and Madison ave. definitely the best place we've stayed in ny! Plus a free wine and cheese reception that evening!

We stayed for seven nights at this charming hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel has furnishings with high quality. Bathroom in our room was great with bathtub even if bedroom is rather small. We had the smallest room. Breakfast was very good and healthy. Very good service all day with refreshments. This is one of our best ten hotels we have stayed in. Our next stay in NY will definitely be at this hotel.
