利便性・快適性の高いホテル

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Pros: ロケーション、サービス、スタッフの対応、清潔さ、雰囲気どれも気に入りました。机で読書や仕事をすることもできるのがよく、テレビが小さく、ラジオでBGMをかけれられるのも仕事がしやすくよかったです。
グランドセントラル駅の近くにあり、SYC空港バスの到着場所が近く、観光・買い物どこに行くにも便利な場所にあります。ミュージカルを見に行くにも、美術館に行くにも、買い物にいくにも容易でした。24時間軽食サービスがあるため、ミュージカルのあとや、歩き回ってちょっと休みたいときにも助かりました。受付はもちろん、スタッフの対応がすばらしく、雰囲気もよく、仕事や読書をするのに最適な環境で、滞在中快適にすごすことができました。日本の高級旅館のような「おもてなし」を受けたような印象でした。

Good boutique hotel

Posted Mar 16, 2015
This hotel is very central for the main sites such as Empire State, Rockerfeller plaza etc. Room was clean and comfortable but a bit on the dark side and a little cold although to be fair it was very cold outside when we were there. All the staff were lovely and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was great as was the evening cheese and wine. If you don't want a large chain hotel this is a good choice.

Small boutique hotel, nice common spaces

Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: Centrally located, quiet common rooms
Cons: Room smelled a bit of cleanser but okay with that!
Checked into the Library hotel - lifelong new yorker but moved recently so while I know the city well, not used to finding a place to sleep other than my own apartment! I had a VERY tiny room but it was fine for one person, would be fine for two, double bed. Common spaces were great and I came back the next day to pick up luggage and used the reading room for a quick call. The breakfast (included) was great and the staff could not have been nicer. Already booked for my next trip into NYC.

Celebration of a birthday and a retirement

Posted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Better TV's
Location: 5th Avenue HighLine All the art Galleries The Blue Fin Restaurant Chez Josephine The Theatre district Birdland for jazz
The Library Hotel is a intimate calm place in the midst of a busy exciting New York City. Close to everything we walked to shopping, music, theatre, and some of the best art galleries in the world. The staff were great giving us suggestions on restaurants, getting cabs and just being cheery as the temperatures dropped. The rooftop bar was were we went after a busy day and plan for the evening, very cozy and relaxed. Now it is on the list of hotels that we recommend to our traveling friends. Many thanks for the great experience Anthony Lysak and Catherine MacEwen

My new "go-to" in NYC

Posted Feb 20, 2015
Pros: Bed was super comfortable and bathroom was spotless
Cons: Still thinking about what could be improved......still thinking....
Location: The hotel is central to Mid-town Manhattan. Just one block away from the iconic NYC Public Library and Bryant Park. It is convenient to everything.
We arrived early and was allowed to check in early - with an upgrade!!! The staff is friendly but not intrusive. The facilities are first rate. Very clean and updated - convenient to everything in New York. We will be back.

親切なスタッフが揃った温かいホテル

Posted Feb 10, 2015
スタッフがとても親切で、気持ち良く過ごせました。 朝食の他にも、軽いお菓子やコーヒーなどラウンジへ行けばいつでも用意されているのも嬉しかったです。また最後の夜、ホテルのBARへ行こうと思ったのですが、ちょうど閉店時間でした。その際に対応して下さった方が代わりに部屋にグラスワインを運んでくださいました。チェックアウトの際に支払うのかなと思っていたら、その分はサービスでした。 清潔でアクセスも良く、次回も是非使いたいホテルです!

Excellent! Would thoroughly recommend this hotel!

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Positioned near Grand Central and with easy access to the main tube lines to get you around the city our stay at The Library was fantastic. The breakfast was very good and always had happy, helpful staff. In the evening there is Prosecco, White Wine, Red Wine and a selection of cheese and crackers served between 5pm & 8pm all free and unlimited which is a very civilised start to the evening, we asked if we could have guests to join us and that was welcomed. Great idea and fabulous service and location, a fabulous hotel!

Lovely hotel with amazing staff, bit noisy though

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Amazing staff were very helpful even before we arrived helping with reservations. Surprised us with prosecco on arrival due to engagement which was a lovely touch! Rooms are quite small but all relative in NYC and even on 7th floor you could really hear traffic below. They give you ear plugs for are reason. Wine and cheese reception is awesome and the charm of the hotel unrivalled.
