Looking for the perfect accommodations for your New York City getaway? Located in Midtown Manhattan, the Library Hotel is in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of popular NYC attractions and tourism, but as its name implies, it’s a quiet, peaceful getaway.
The Library Hotel actually draws inspiration from, what else, the Dewey Decimal system for its design. Each of its 10 floors focuses on one category of the system and are decorated with art and books exploring that topic. For example, the fifth floor is specifically tailored to botany, while the eleventh floor is all about psychology.
The hotel naturally encourages their guests to read, so they offer a 24-hour Reading Room, with hundreds of books, as well as a café. In the evenings, the Reading Room also includes a complimentary selection of Prosecco, fine wines, imported and domestic cheeses, fresh bread, crackers, and crudités for tasting. The Writer’s Den and Poetry Garden are two rooms located on the 14th floor (the rooftop) and serve as a relaxing reading space or a spot to chat with authors, literary experts, or just fans of reading. Overall, there are over 6,000 books in the hotel for you to explore and read, truly making the destination a reader’s paradise.
The hotel also has many other amenities and luxuries for guests to enjoy. There are some basic hotel amenities, such as concierge service, same-day dry cleaning and laundry, free Internet access, complimentary breakfast, evening turn-down service, and amenities for the room, such as a mini-fridge, television, DVD player, bathrobe and slippers, and an in-room safe.
The aforementioned DVD player is also equipped with access to the hotel’s DVD library, which includes the top 100 movies of the 20th century (according to the American Film Institute). Other special perks include complimentary access to the New York Sports Clubs throughout Manhattan, a 24-hour business room and discounted parking at ICON Parking.
