Super location for exploring the city

Pros: Everything I wanted: comfortable bed, nice bathroom, daily water bottles, helpful staff.
Location: Morgan Library, Bryant Park, Central Library, Grand Central Station, theatres
Lovely room and added benefit of breakfast and afternoon cheese with wine. We easily walked to see plays and nearby sights or to access the subway from Grand Central.

Perfection in NYC

Pros: Everything - nothing to dislike!
Cons: We wouldn't change a thing - keep doing what you're doing!
Location: The location was perfect - close to Grand Central, Times Square, Rockefeller Ctr and tons of shopping.
This tiny boutique hotel had it all - charm, character, cleanliness, friendliness, and location. Located around the corner from Grand Central Station, we found it easily and settled in immediately. The room was amply sized and had perfect amenities. The bed was comfy, the bathroom clean and well-stocked, and the cocktail hour and breakfast offerings were generous and well appreciated. An A+ all around!

Super Location / Friendly Staff

Pros: Location / Location / Location! No Uber/Taxi/shuttle needed. Public transportation easily within reach.
Cons: Offer umbrellas for day use in the front lobby for random days of inclement weather.
Location: Every attraction in Manhattan is within reach with pass to metro transportation.
We visited NYC for an extended weekend and chose the Library Hotel based on previous reviews. We were not at all disappointed. The hotel location is perfect and only a 2 minute walk to Gand Central Station and nearly ALL public transit. Convenience of complementary breakfast was an added perk. Staff was knowledgeable and very eager to assist with local recommendations for meals/attractions/transportation. Fitness passes to local club worked well for us. Safe neighborhood!

4 Wonderful Days in New York City

Pros: Everything!
Location: Centrally located within waking distance of Bryant Park. Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center, Times Square ,The Empire State Building and Shops
A lovely, quaint and crisp Hotel, centrally located. Our plane arrived very early on a Thursday, hours before check-in time. The staff graciously held our baggage and invited us to partake in breakfast within their charming second floor gathering room. Each evening the staff served complimentary wine along with cheese and desserts in the same room. We were able to meet and chat with other guests from around the world. The rooms were clean, current and well maintained. I will definitely stay at the Library Hotel again, an oasis within the bustle of NYC

Incredible!

I have been wanting to stay at the Library Hotel ever since they opened and just got the chance due to a very reasonable discounted rate ($300 for a queen room) over the Christmas holiday. They did not disappoint! \nPROS: 1. Fabulous staff - not just one or two but every single one. They were courteous, helpful and completely approachable in a friendly but not pushy way. Owners - you have one terrific staff - be nice to them! 2. The absolutely ingenious idea of a hotel based on the Dewey decimal system. It was very cool! 3. The free (yes free) continental breakfast, snacks, wine and cheese that are available to all guests in the beautiful 2nd floor lounge. I I had not a penny of additional charges on my bill when I checked out. I can't remember the last time that happened. So when you think the rate is too expensive don't forget to account for the free stuff. 4. Rooms were beautiful although small, remember this is NY. My daughter and I had a queen room and it was just big enough. 5. Location is great at Madison and 41st right in the middle of everything. \n\nCONS: 1.Cost but remember this is NY 2. Restaurant is only so-so.
