We spent a lovely long weekend at the Library Hotel. I chose the hotel for its excellent location and because I'm a book lover. The service was friendly and attentive, our room ("Economics") was charming and very clean (always most important), and we appreciated the complimentary breakfasts and coffee on the 2nd floor. We dined twice at Madison & Vine, and had a pleasant, relaxing time on both occasions. We were glad to have a nice restaurant in the hotel when we arrived late on our first night and when we returned to the hotel, exhausted, after walking our feet off a few nights later. All in all, I would recommend this hotel highly. I had only one small criticism and that was that there was no sink in the washroom (it was just outside the door), which means one must wash one's hands in the tub or touch the doorknob before washing.
One other note, not a criticism, but a head's up for future guests: if you want a coffee maker in your room, you must ask to have one sent up. We didn't notice the card in our room that indicated this until our final day, so we got our morning coffees from the Starbucks across the street. Next time we stay, we'll request the coffee maker; it's always nice to have coffee in bed when you're on holiday.
