I have stayed here a number of times over the past 5 years, most recently 1 month ago, and enjoyed every stay. First, it is centrally located and just a few blocks from Grand Central Station and Bryant Park making most of Midtown very walkable. It is in an old library, which is pretty cool, and love the theme and that you have books in your room that match your Dewey number. The hotel is very nice - but the rooms can be very small. Even if you are in a small room though, it is very comfortable with a good bath, and there are a number of nice common areas you can spread out in. The breakfast and wine room on the second floor is great to relax and read the paper in in the AM. The roof terrace is lovely in the summer to sit on at night. And, if you are exhausted, don't feel bad about retreating early - they have the AFI top 100 films downstairs to enjoy. This hotel can get quite expensive, but they have sales a few times a year and if you can book at this rate definitely stay here.
