After reading all the already great reviews on tripadvisor regarding the Library Hotel, my family and I decided to book up to celebrate my 21st birthday for a six day stay in New York at the Library Hotel.
To start with, any pre visit questions we had, the reservations team were quick to come back with us with the answers and couldn't have been more helpful in organising our airport transfers.
On arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful concierge member by the name of "Alvin" who was absolutely superb and someone we made great friends with. We were swiftly checked in and shown up to our rooms and boy was we impressed! The rooms very spotless, not a dirty mark in sight. The rooms were beautifully decorated and appointed generously with various amenities. We had the deluxe rooms which were very suspicious and suited our needs perfectly, not a bad word to say about them. The housekeeping also did a superb job keeping the rooms spick and span!
Secondly is the location. This being our first visit to New York, we were all quite naive about our surroundings but were swiftly given maps by the front desk and shown where all the great places were to go. We quickly realised how central this hotel was to the main attractions, with just a quick 10 minute walk to times square or a 5 minute walk to grand central station. We couldn't have asked for a better location.
This hotel has that special quality of after having a busy day walking around the city, as soon as you step through those hotel doors, you are whisked away into a peaceful and tranquil place giving you that well needed relaxation, listening to soft music while enjoying complimentary cheese and wine, it doesn't get much better than that!
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to New York and this Hotel certainly did meet and exceed our expectations on every level and made our visit that extra bit special.
