Amazing happy hour reception with a superb buffett and wine. Its free! You'd spend $50 for happy hr elsewhere in the city. The fact that you can go into this reception room any time of day for coffee, fruit or cookies and even take it to go really helps you save some money in this pricey city. There is also a beautiful rooftop terrace onw hich to enjoy the treats. Yes, the rooms are very small, but you'l find that everywhere in NYC. The location is great and the service exceptional.

The Library Hotel is the best hotel I've stayed in in New York. The service was excellent and the room was very nicely furnished. You get slippers and a robe to use while you're there which was nice after a long day of exploring the city. There is also complimentary access to a near-by fitness club. There is a continental breakfast included, as well as a wine and cheese reception in the evening. There are also snacks available all day long. The roof top bar was great to eat breakfast in and unwind there at niight. I would recommend signing up for their email specials: I scored a great rate which included a complimentary bottle of wine. I can't wait to return!!

I've reviewed this hotel before, but it was a couple of years ago, and I've been back several times since then. Each time has been as pleasant as the last - the service is always polite and efficient, the rooms are very comfortable, clean and well-appointed (nice beds, air conditioning), there's free wi-fi, and the location is ideal. What really make the hotel for me, though, are the public spaces - the 'reading room' and the upstairs bar. During the day they're generally empty, and you can relax with free coffee and snacks. In the late afternoon and evening they also have a free wine and cheese selection. I would never stay anywhere else in New York.

I did not think it deserved the rave reviews it has had. It is a clean modern hotel in a convenient location but the rooms are very small & breakfast is only average. Our bed cover also had a big tear in it.
Bell boy & front desk Service was very good.
Ok you get some books to read & a trendy room naming system. Clever marketing but so what !

Dear Ozski,

We appreciate you providing us with feedback on your stay with us. Our goal each day is to do our best in exceeding guests expectations from the moment they walk through our doors till the moment they part. It is hard for us to hear that we weren’t able to accomplish this during your stay. However, we do have to mention that most of our guests truly enjoy the hotel’s concept and what it brings to their NYC experience. I am so sorry about the bed cover. We strive to inspect every bit of bedding thoroughly every time beds are made and we do regret not catching that tear before you did. We would have been more than happy to have replaced it or offered another alternative. It’s extremely important to us that our guests feel as comfortable as possible so you will be glad to know that many of our covers have been replaced since last year when you stayed and this year we will actually replace all of our bedding. I am so glad you did enjoy the service of our staff. Our sister hotels, such as Hotel Giraffe also do a great job making guests feel at home, and offer different room sizes than the Library. If the Library wasn’t the best fit for you, perhaps one of our other hotels would be a great option for a future stay and we would greatly appreciate another opportunity to welcome you. Please feel free to contact me directly should you want to learn more or have any additional questions or comments. We would be delighted to hear from you.

This is one of 4 hotels in the K&H Hospitality Group and The Library is as lovely as the others. With books on every wall and a theme based on the Dewey Decimal system, it reminded me of days gone by but remained very sophisticated at the same time. Service is fantastic, bed comfortable, continental breakfast a great way to start your day, especially in the 2nd floor lounge with a great view of the busy NYC streets.

Room Tip: Room with a view of Madison Avenue worth the entertainment value, especially between 5 & 6, rush hour.
