My husband and I booked a 4 night stay in one of the Deluxe rooms at The Library Hotel. From the moment we arrived, the service we received was absolutely fantastic. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, from the waitresses to the housekeeping, and especially the concierge staff who bend over backwards to make sure you're happy and content. From 5-8 every evening they serve complimentary cheese and wine in The Reading Room, overlooking Madison Avenue, and they certainly DON'T scrimp. Choose from Prosecco, white or red wines, and from a selection of cheeses, crudites and oatcakes.
If I have one criticism, it is that the restaurant, Madison & VIne, is overpriced. The service charge is 18% even for 2 diners, and the wines are upwards of $40. However, the only reason we ate there was due to jetlag, and laziness, there are many other places on the same block offering great value nosh.
