Library Hotel, Midtown East

"A academically themed boutique hotel, with literary sensibilities, a 24-hour library and plenty of old-school charm."

Discover serenity while nestled in the elegantly innovative design of the Library Hotel. The warmth of rich mahogany paneling, thoughtful attention to detail and gracious old world hospitality transform a visit to this Library into a uniquely tranquil experience.

Guests can request a room based upon personal interests. For example, rooms specializing in subjects from Poetry and Mysteries to Erotic Literature can be requested on the Literature Floor.

In the book lined second floor Reading Room guests may enjoy complimentary refreshments throughout the day; as well as deluxe continental breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception – while perusing a selection of daily newspapers and over 1000 books.
