Amazing location, great service, quiet, peacefulPosted Jul 19, 2014
Location: Things to do nearby: New York Public Library, Madison Avenue shopping, Grand Central Terminal.
My husband and I stayed in Times Square for the first half of our trip and at the Library Hotel for our last two nights. We were impressed by the location: close to Grand Central Terminal, and the New York Public Library. The feel of the area was much different than the touristy, busyness of Times Square; a welcome reprieve. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Library. The breakfast was fresh and convenient, the garden top roof-bar was excellent, the staff and service was incredibly accommodating and friendly. We got the room we originally wanted as well. Our room was clean, cozy, quiet, and comfortable. Can't recommend this hotel enough. We would love to come and stay here again every time we visit NYC.

Central Location for NY CityPosted Jul 10, 2014
We had a fantastic 5 day stay exploring NY. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay very enjoyable. Room and facilities were very good. Nice continental breakfast and free wine and cheese in the evening. Will stay there again.

Fantastic location and great hotelPosted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Included breakfast and cheese and wine in the evenings
Cons: Beds in our rooms were a little small as 2 men in our group were over 6' 2.
Location: Close to Bryant Park, Times Square with lots of restaurants and shops close by
Excellent place to stay with themed rooms and close to Times Square. Staff were so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble especially booking restaurants for our group of 6. Really enjoyed our stay

Little gemPosted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: Staff Location
Cons: Roof top bar was frequented by youngish wannabees. We had concerns about the security in the hotel due to the public access to the roof top bar.
Location: Times, square, and Grand Cenral Terminus 7 minutes walk, New York Library 3 minutes walk. A most central hotel.
We felt very welcomed on arrival. First impressions of our 4th floor room was that it was smaller than expected, but on closer inspection we realised that the best things come in small packages. The room had everything we needed, bed small but comfortable, adequat wardrobe space, bathroom facilities excellent with lovely toilletries. We found a fault with the room safe, which was dealt with quickly and effectively. The best thing about our stay was the breakfast each morning, refreshments throughout the day, if needed and the fabulous cheese, nibbles and wine each evening. We much appreciated the little touches, such as the chocolates and the weather forecaste for the next day. Location was great. Bryant Park, close by, is a little gem - events almost every evening. Can't wait to go back, and would recommend the hotel.

A wonderful little boutique hotelPosted May 29, 2014
Pros: The hotel staff were brilliant. Not over the top but just the right amount of attentiveness to our needs. They made us feel very welcome and at home.
Cons: Security. I felt like anyone could walk in off the street, though I suppose they have to considering there is a public lounge on the 14th floor.
Location: In the heart of midtown within easy striking distance of everything (without feeling like you're in the eye of the storm)
On the corner of 41st and Madison Ave in Midtown New York City, The Library Hotel is a wonderful little boutique hotel. We stayed as a couple celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and the staff made us feel especially welcome with a complimentary bottle of Prosceco waiting for us in our room. The room was small, but not too small, and the bathroom was clean and well stocked. The residents lounge facilities on the 2nd floor were the highlight of our stay with complimentary drinks and snacks on offer 24hrs a day and a free cheese and wine reception in the early evening which was always well attended! The public rooftop lounge on the 14th floor attracts the city crowd in the early sunny evenings, as you would expect with views over the city, the waitresses are not the most welcoming, the cocktails are unimaginative and too expensive to keep you coming back for more, but you have to try it at least once. There is a restaurant on the ground floor accessible from reception and the street, we never ate there but there always seemed to be a decent number of people dining. Overall, we were really happy with our choice of hotel and I think would definitely choose to stay there again should we choose to stay in the midtown area.

Fantastic Stay at the LibraryPosted May 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed at the Library Hotel when we visited New York to get married. The staff were excellent and right from the off couldn't do enough for us... they even sent a bottle to our room to congratulate us.The hotel is a very central location and the extra touches really set it aside from other hotels. The breakfast and Cheese and Wine at evening were fantastic; lots of choice and of the highest quality. The room we were given was fantastic, every ammenity and a gorgeous view of the Public Library. We will be returning.
