This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I admit, I was a bit nervous when I booked this hotel, since I had a petite single room and I heard they were very small. Not the case at all! Yeah, the room is only 200 sq. feet, but whoever designed the layout of the furniture and the location of the bathroom was a total genius. Talk about making excellent use of small space! Believe me, I'm a girl that travels with a lot of stuff, and I was able to lay out all my shoes on the floor, all my beauty products on the bathroom sink and in the tub. Space was never an issue; I was so comfortable. Everything was impeccably clean; pristine actually. The staff were so nice and gracious; they helped me with my luggage as soon as my cab arrived at the front door, and they immediately greeted me by my name. I arrived before check-in, but they kindly held my luggage for me all day until I got back that afternoon. And did I mention the complementary amenities? ... including breakfast, snacks all day, and wine and cheese and night. Wonderful. I adored the rooftop; I stayed for 2 days, and I was out there on both days totoally enjoying the great view of the city and the nice breeze... it was hot outside when I was there, but somehow cooler on the roof. As a librarian, I appreciate the Dewey theme of the hotel; it was creative and well done. However, you don't need to be a librarian to appreciate this Manhattan gem. If you have any doubts about booking this hotel, don't!! Book it now. You'll have the time of your life. I know that I'll be back!
