    Clean and comfortable rooms - well air conditioned. The breakfast included in the rate was very good. The cheese and wine afternoon tea was also excellent and a great way to meet the different guests in the hotel. It is well located for all the sights of New York. The staff were able to make good dinner recommendations and never failed to impress.

    The personal touch the hotel showed us was very noticeable and appreciated, nothing was too much trouble. They were friendly and accommodating.I Loved the library themed approach and it was minimal a more sophisticated feel rather than a 'theme park approach' that I was concerned about. The location is excellent , the breakfast was fresh, varied and appetising and the afternoon refreshments is a lovely welcomed touch. It was our 10th wedding anniversary and they congratulated on us on arrival but a small token 'cocktail' or the like would have been the icing of the cake ( some hotels do but never mind.... That's the only thing I would say ) . I would highly recommend this hotel to couples or business, but I expect it would be quite expensive for families. I would return here again without a doubt if I ever find myself in New York again. Thank You for contributing to my wonderful New York experience !.

    Coming from the uk I am a tea drinker and the refreshment room only facilitated flask hot water and over time this went luke warm. Even though it was no trouble for them to give me boiling water I did have to ask and wait; I do think it would save them time and give immediate customer satisfaction if it was available via the coffee machine; this is a minor matter and it didn't spoil the holiday at all.

    Very good

    Availability of coffee and refreshments all day and night, separate area to relax, interesting decor and good showers.

    Beds were a bit narrow, systems need a bit of work (failed wake up call and staff did not know how to charge a round of drinks onto the room). No room service menu in rooms - even though room service is done.

    Very good

    The hotel is located at intersection of 41st and Madison Ave. This part of the city is very busy even at night. Unfortunately, the windows even when tightly closed cannot prevent you from disturbing city noise. This noise is so loud that you barely can sleep even if just made transoceanic flight. That’s real disadvantage of this hotel. Otherwise, especially the staff is very friendly bit this problem with the noise the staff definitely cannot cure.

    Great staff, very friendly and helpful. The location is great; close to subways, restaurants and a relaxed part of New York. The rooms were great, good appointments etc; and the library them worked really well. Would definitely stay there again.

    It would have been nice if we could have had a 1 bed room suite; whcih the library doe not offer. but we all fitted comfortably into the junior suite.

    I stayed at the Library with my 16 year old daughter and we both love reading, so this looked like a perfect choice for us but The Library Hotel gave us so much more!! The service was excellent, the staff were so friendly, the breakfast was great, the free coffee on tap all day and the cheese and biscuits on offer in the afternoon, all of it superb!!!

    The friendliness of the staff, the rooftop garden, and the daily five -o-clock wine and cheese buffet. My wife and I were staying at the hotel with our 27 year old daughter, and all of us would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. In fact I would go so far as to say that the Library will always be my hotel when visiting New York.

    Nothing, it was just excellent!!
