Everything was perfect; room, bathroom, amenities, bed. Only thing that could have been better was the 7-10am breakfast. Hotel staff was very nice and extremely helpful in the busy area of NYC. 5 out of 5.

This was our fifth visit to Manhattan and each time we have chosen a four- or five-star hotel in slightly differing location in the hope of finding a home-away-from-home to enhance our NYC experience. We hit the jackpot this time. Although it is a small hotel, we could not have asked for more. The theme of a library hotel with each room having a them based on there Dewey decimal classification is quirky but works, although I suspect that the rate of nightmares would be higher in the Math room. The books are in good condition and well chosen. The staff are attentive and professional and will go out of their way to meet your needs. The level 2 dining room hosts a breakfast that is simple but all that is required for a healthy start for the day. It is also the site for evening wine and cheese (fresh and reasonably good quality produce) and all-day coffee and pastry. The rooms can be small but are clean, efficient and beautifully designed. Those of you travelling with multiple large bags should consider booking the larger rooms, although a creative solution worked well for us (2 large, 4 small bags) after some trial and error. The location was SUPERB. You can choose to walk uptown and downtown, or hop on the train from Grand Central station which is a couple of blocks away. I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute. Whilst the hotel is set in a busy part of NYC, a stones throw away from the iconic public library, our room was off the street allowing us to have a peaceful night. I loved the decor and the staff were really helpful. Our fridge was regularly replenished, at no cost to us, and the room was always clean and tidy when we got back to freshen up in the afternoon.

Booked this hotel through Expedia and had the best experience. The hotel is beautiful very art deco and you feel like you are in The Great Gatsby. The room was huge, plush and comfortable. Did not want to leave the sumptuous bed, but its great location next to Central Park was key to visit this beautiful area, near the Museums and fantastic restaurants. On 5th Avenue so easy to walk to the shops. The staff were very helpful, always cheerful and happy to accommodate any request.

The staff were absolutely excellent from arrival right through our stay. We arrived to a buzzing atmosphere with many enjoying cocktails in the foyer and a Jazz Pianist. Our room on the 5th floor was superb - the room had every amenity you could think of, the mini bar had every spirit available I could think of, the bathroom was incredible, and getting into bed every night after a long day of sight seeing and taking in New York, was a fantastic feeling.
Being so central, I was concerned it might be noisy but we could not hear a thing from Times Square. Great access to the subway station, so within minutes you could be downtown walking the Brooklyn Bridge, in Greenwich Village enjoying a cocktail, or taking a stroll through Central Park.
I would go so far as saying this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, if not the best. If you are looking for a boutique hotel, with a central location I could not recommend this enough. Absolutely superb.
