The Library Hotel - New York

4 stars
299 Madison Ave, New York, NY, 10017, United States of America, ‏‎1-844-302-2242

The Library Hotel brings a unique concept to the world of hospitality in New York City and is a property that no book lover should ever miss. As the name suggests, the hotel is indeed organized just like a library with 10 floors arranged according to the ten classifications of knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System (the same used in most libraries over the world).

You will therefore find entire floors of rooms dedicated to a specific subject and containing volumes of books related to the specific topic. The floor themes include social sciences, literature, languages, history, math & science, general knowledge, technology, philosophy, the arts and religion.

The hotel offers many spaces to unwind with a book or enjoy the many Library Hotel Collection signature amenities that are included in the rate. The Reading Room is home to hundreds of books and offers a selection of refreshments 24 hours a day, including a bountiful continental breakfast buffet and an evening wine-and-cheese reception every evening. Guests can also enjoy the rooftop Writer’s Den and Poetry Garden and terrace which by night becomes Bookmarks Lounge, a sophisticated and intimate bar popular with local New Yorkers.

Free wireless Internet access is available, while health conscious guests can enjoy free access at the nearby New York Sports Club, a full service gym facility.

The first floor Madison & Vine Restaurant is the hotel's American bistro and international wine bar, serving lunch and dinner in a casually elegant setting.
