My girlfriend (now my fiancé) and I stayed at The Library Hotel for a week over Christmas (22 December 2013 - 30 December 2013). The hotel has it all, the wine and cheese evenings are great and plentiful, the staff are all attentive and are prepared to go the extra mile.
It was our first visit to NYC and we found the hotel to be located in a great area for exploring Midtown and beyond. Times Square, the Empire State Building, Macys, Broadway and a whole host of other attractions are accessible on foot and within 20 minutes or so. Grand Central Station is just around the corner which makes travelling further afield very convenient.
I could probably write for hours about all the finer minutiae and how our stay was made perfect by this Hotel.
All I can say is do believe the hype and don't waste anymore time in booking your stay.
We will definitely stay at The Library Hotel again if we head back to NYC.
