I have stayed at Hotel Giraffe - the sister hotel to Library. Giraffe is much closer to what the hotel line (The Library Collection) promises. The staff at both are friends, and the general set-up (re: room service, meals, rooms, hotel energy, premise) are the same. But, Giraffe does it better. This hotel is in a great location if you like the shopping on Madison Avenue and Park Avenue. But, there was just something missing. They seem to be trying to fill the void between boutique hotel and luxury line. They are not hitting it exactly as needed. Meaning, this is a very clean, kind hotel. Just not the wonderful "library" experience they tout.
Hope this helps.
