After several visits to New York and staying in the usual huge hotels with rude staff, impersonal service, rooms not properly cleaned the Library hotel was everything that I received a recommendation on.
Well situated in a fairly quiet street with a great restaurant owned by the hotel on street level.
I ate there with guests twice and the food was great and well priced.
On arrival the reception staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.
The room was clean, well cared for including the bathroom.
The daily breakfasts were excellent - a continental breakfast as advertised - everything was fresh and nicely presented. The service was really good from very helpful staff.
During the day one could pop in for a coffee, a snack etc.
There were rooftop drinks in the evening though I never made it.
I have recommended this hotel and would certainly return on a future visit to New York.
