Wonderful experience, as always. Great location and friendly staff. Super quiet room. Snacks are a plus. Bryant Park is great to sit and people watch. Love the closeness to the library. Will stay here again.

Just book it and don't look back, this hotel is a gem and WORTH EVERY PENNY My husband and I stayed here for four night during our most recent stay to NY. We LOVED it! Here are some of the highlights for us: -Luggage storage for early arrivals -2nd floor library open 24/7 that is fully stocked with waters, coffee machine, LaCroix, soft drinks, snacks and a million books -Room had all of the amenities you would need (and if it did not include something, they would bring it to you- we frequently called for more coffee). -Rooftop bar with great views, breeze and happy hour specials each night -Great location walking distance to all the sites and great restaurants! 10/10 will do it again!

Another enjoyable stay at the Library Hotel! Attentive staff. Rooms clean, comfortable and cozy. Rooftop bar is a must see. Restaurant Madison and Vine is next door, a great spot for brunch, lunch or dinner. Hotel is conveniently located on the East Side near shopping, restaurants and cafes. Bryant Park a block away. Looking forward to our next visit!

Really enjoyed the stay, great location, clean, well thought out room. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Lovely to have the restaurant, roof bar and nice lounge making you feel like the whole hotel is the executive floor. Cost is expensive, but comparable or less than similar properties. Mild issues were somewhat soft mattress; not my favorite style and that the AC system is fairly noisy, making it harder to sleep. Shame as the room was nice and quiet otherwise.

Charming hotel. Felt welcome the moment we stepped in. From the front desk to the roof top bar, all those caring for us were hospitable and gracious. Room was well appointed. Would recommend being on a top floor. Be sure to check out the roof top bar. We had yummy drinks and a wonderful server.

Most comfortable hotel bed ever, plush towels, friendly staff, great roof bar, well-stocked “reading room,” convenient location. Don’t miss the free weekend summer concerts in the evenings down the street at Bryant Park.

Incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. Rooms are clean. There is a lounge on the second floor stocked with free water, beverages and a real espresso machine! Plus snacks and fresh fruit. The rooftop lounge is lovely! The hotel also has a 1:00pm checkout! Who does that these days?!! What a gem of a hotel! Best place we have stayed in NYC.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in July - Junior Suite. The good - beautiful hotel (property) and room. Well located. Staff were friendly in general. The bad - A/C unit in our room was VERY loud. I could not sleep the first night and had to permanently leave just the fan on during the night to make sure it would not cycle on and off. The drains (bathtub and sink) would drain very slowly at times. I raised both of these issues to the front desk - they said they would look into but did not follow-up with me and nothing changed. Overall, they did not seem to care too much about it was the impression I got. Its an older building so I suppose it comes with the territory.

Hello gapyear21, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We pride ourselves in the relationship we have with our guests and sorry that you feel that we did not seem to care about your issues. I assure you, we most certainly do care about all of our guests, and we will address this with our front desk staff. The comfort of our guests is our top priority. As our Junior Suites are a relatively large room, they do require a lot of energy to cool down the large space, which may, unfortunately, make it loud. As you mentioned, the building is over one hundred years old, and there is little we can do about the existing plumbing, which can appear slow at times. Our front desk staff should have followed up with you, however, to address your concerns. We hope this did not damper your visit and that you were still able to enjoy this wonderful city and everything it has to offer. Kindly, Justin Scimeme Sales Manager

Great hotel in the heart of the city. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and I loved the uniqueness of the books in every room with a couple of free books to take home. Lovely front desk staff and centrally located for our business trip. Will definitely stay here again.

Hello 185AndreaK, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of our partnership with Simon & Schuster. They often send us advanced readers and an occasional 'best seller' for our guests to enjoy. They usually fly off our desk very quickly, so we're ecstatic that you were able to snag one. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kindly, Justin Scimeme Sales Manager
