You gotta love the Library
The library hotel was Evie’s hoped for on our first trip to NY ... staff so helpful . Central location .. couldn’t fault it

Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic stay at this beautiful quaint hotel with old fashioned courtesy and values. From the minute we checked in we felt like royalty nothing was too much trouble. The room is small but comfortable and there is little noise from outside a real bonus in NYC! The staff are outstanding the breakfast plenty and the cheese and wine a great addition to unwind after a long day! Would definitely recommend!

Highly recommend this quaint hotel
Small, friendly hotel with lovely staff, especially the ladies at breakfast and cocktail hours. They are a credit to the hotel. This hotel is perfectly placed, Central and within walking distance of every site. Not luxurious but in NY you really only need a bed and shower since it would be a shame to sit in a hotel. Adjacent restaurant is very good and classy. Cocktails and cheese, bread/nibbles are included. We actually skipped evening meals to fit more in since we filled up before or after changing for the evening tourist activities. Whilst tipping in NY is essential you never felt anyone was working to gain their end of week tips as the ladies serving felt very genuine. In would highly recommend and use this hotel again rather than stay in a large, noisy environment.

Small but great
Fantastic location, 5 minutes walk from times square, across the road from the new York library Quite small rooms for the USA generally, but ok for new York Very good staff, always wanting to help. Limited breakfast choice, but quite adequate Evening reception with wine and nibbles was just the job after a long days sightseeing Would strongly recommend it to my friends
