I spent just two nights at the Library at the beginning of August. Although the hotel is in a busy part of midtown, it always felt calm and relaxing. The staff were incredibly attentive and helpful. My Deluxe room on the 10th floor was lovely and again calm, relaxing and quiet. I suggest it is a good idea going for the deluxe queen rather than the petite as the extra space was appreciated.When I arrived there was a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine greeting me in my room. A/C wasn't noisy but it definitely was needed as the city was very warm indeed. The breakfast was great, a lovely touch with a good variety of food and drinks and the cheese and wine was fantastic too. Except it isn't JUST cheese and wine but plenty of other food and drink too. The hosts really are very generous and I do feel other hotels could definitely learn from the Library. The only slight negative during my stay was the rather patchy wifi but it really didn't matter a jot as every other aspect of my stay was fantastic. I wasn't too sure what to expect as I generally don't choose to stay midtown, but my stay at the library has made me question this for next time! I would recommend the hotel wholeheartedly!
