Boutique Hotel. Small, quaint, clean. We stayed almost a week in June, five years ago (says June 2017 below, but was not given an option for earlier year). We were in a great room, modern art. Creaky old elevator added charm. Good location--close to Grand Central Station and the real NYC Public Library. A nice walk to Times Square, etc.

Date of stay: June 2017

What a wonderful place for a wedding. Indoor and outdoor space plus own bar. The ceremony room is a bright space, name tags on seats and beautiful orchids to decorate. The weather was good enough to get out on the balcony for some photographs, which had lots of seating and plants decorating the space, and not forgetting the views. We also had an indoor lounging area which was very comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, special mention goes to Joel. All in all a wonderful experience.

We stayed for week at the end of March. We were delighted.
The location is great, room was very comfortable, price was fair and... they have a complimentary "drinks and snacks"service everyday at 4:00 PM!!
However, what we liked the most was the excellent level of service of the EVERYONE in the staff.
Strongly recommend it

This is my 2nd stay with The Library Hotel. I booked a deluxe King room this time and as usual it was very clean and quite spacious. The best thing about this hotel is the staff and the hospitality they offer. We were invited to have breakfast when we arrived very early on Thursday and again was invited to use the 2nd floor lounge after I checked out on Monday and my flight was leaving late in the day. Every librarian is helpful and so accommodating. I will be back!

The ratings for this hotel are wonderful .. and they are right. If you prefer a small attentive, lovely, boutique hotel in a great neighborhood of New York for a fair and honest price, this is the place. My room was small but so well done and appointed. Very comfortable bed and great bathroom. Staff was fabulous. We have stayed at their sister property the Giraffe before and thought we would try this one as it was closer to our work location. Great evening wine and cheese service, wonderful but simple breakfast like the Giraffe. Cookies and coffee all day long. Great common room on the second floor. Bar on the upper floor. And did I mention the books. They have 7000 books including some brand new ones that they get from the publisher that are there for the taking. I like this place a great deal. I will be back.
