We spent the first 5 days of our honeymoon at the Library Hotel and would definitely recommend. New York hotels are pretty expensive - this one being about £220 per night was at top of our budget but really a very good find at this price.
I had been concerned that a petite room would feel cramped for the two of us after reading reviews but it was absolutely fine and room was lovely. We were on 11th floor and had no issues with noise at all, NYC is a constant buzz in the background but you get used to that.
Nice touch of prosecco in our room on arrival. Two computers and printers available at no extra charge on 2nd floor.
We were given a warm friendly welcome by all members of staff, from check in, to doormen, to service staff, really to notch.
Location is great and just round the corner from Grand Central - handy because it is one of those subway stations where you can get the express subway - cuts down time getting around new york.
Another big plus is the breakfast - until 10 each morning. There are various pastries tea coffee etc provided thoughout the day. There is also free wine in the evenings, but we were always out and missed this.
Would happily return.
