Great stay at The Library. Following a room upset (i had specifically asked for a lower floor as lift claustrophobic and was offered a 7th floor room on arrival) the staff apologised and moved us to the third floor into a Petite Room for the first night then to the Deluxe Room we had booked the following day. They were genuinely apologetic and did everything to make it up to us and make our stay enjoyable. Petite Room rather small, probably ok for a night or two, the Deluxe worked well. Quite noisy but I overcame that with earplugs! Breakfast is very good, self serve. Excellent staff on hand to help and make porridge and toast. Afternoon drinks and nibbles a real treat. We were two couples and spent the early evening enjoying drinks, nibbles and chats. I would definitely recommend this lovely Boutique Hotel and would stay there again when visiting New York.

We stayed here in mid January 2014 for 12 nights. We are experienced travellers and spend a month in Europe and 2 weeks in Thailand almost every year. We would describe ourselves as discerning - when it comes to choosing Hotels. We tend to gravitate to smaller properties with more personalised service. It was cold and snowy outside. We could not be more-complimentary of this property. Room, facilities, location, staff were all exemplary. The free - breakfast, all day coffee and wine and cheese in the evening exceeded our expectations and added to the value and warmth as well as providing a great opportunity to meet other travellers. We created some new friends! If we had any complaint - it would be the street noise [We were on 9th Floor Madison Ave] One of us is a real light sleeper and more conscious of noise! But with that observed, we would have to stress that it wouldn't stop us recommending, or staying at the Library Hotel again. We loved it!

My teenage daughter and I stayed at The Library Hotel for a week over the New Year's holiday. We had an excellent stay overall and most aspects more than fulfilled our expectations like for example the hospitality of the staff, the little extras like a dvd player in room plus an extensive choice of dvd's from dvd library, the Reading Room with complimentary snacks and teas and coffees, Wine and cheeses in the evening, etc all excellent and most welcome. Location is absolutely perfect..bang on the shopping streets of 5th Avenue and Madison and yet out of the hustle and bustle of Time square which can be slightly tacky. There were however a couple of disappointing things mainly the New year's Eve Party on the Top Floor bar, which promised a hot and cold buffet, canapés, desserts etc.. the staff was attentive and drinks were not a problem but the food was appalling...cold slabs of chicken breast, congealed pasta with a plain (and dry)tomato sauce and grilled but basically raw vegetables, one pastry as a canapé, two tiny cream cakes for dessert and that was all, not cheap for $125/person. To be perfectly fair, drinks were free-flowing which is not a small thing for the price considering that alcohol is so expensive in the US so for younger people out to party it was probably perfect, but for us it was rather disappointing. The other comment is also regarding food and maybe i could suggest a little change in the choice of cheeses and crudités offered in the evening? We were there for a week and every day it was exactly the same down to the position of the plates on the counter..a little change every now and again? Having said that, we had a wonderful stay at The Library and these little things can be overlooked compared to the other positive aspects during our week there...we shall definitely be staying there again in the future.
