The Library Hotel is in a central location at Madison Avenue and 41st Street in midtown Manhattan, convenient to all locations for both business travelers and leisure travelers. The staff is friendly and well trained. The rooms and bathrooms are reasonably sized for a small, boutique hotel and well equipped. There is plenty of storage space for your clothing and other items in the rooms. The hotel provides a complimentary continental breakfast in the second floor lounge as well as wine and snacks in the evening. There is a hip and active bar on the top floor with a rooftop deck. The rooms could use more easily accessible electric plugs for all the gadgets we all travel with and usually need to plug in at the same time. I had to unplug the desk lamp in order to plug in my laptop charger.
One other item to be aware of is that the address is 299 Madison Avenue even thought the hotel entrance is on 41st Street. This can cause an issue with a car service as they always look for the entrance on Madison Avenue even if you specifically tell them the entrance is on Madison.
