Quirky book-themed boutique hotel off Madison Avenue

Steps from Grand Central

All about the details. Above and beyond. Great friendly service, unique and creative property. Lots of cozy/cool/inviting/delicious options for spending time within the property vs just in your room. Looking forward to returning.

Heaven for library lovers!
Quiet, great service, lovely amenities. 2nd floor lounge was bright and comfortable. Room was clean and so interesting with books based on the theme of the floor. I can't wait to see the books on other floors! Will definitely be back.

Stay here and treat yourself
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I just needed a one night stay as I transited through NYC between JFK and LaGuardia. The serenity and comfort of this hotel was a welcome treat. If you love books and peace of mind, please check this place out. The wine and cheese is a nice touch, free breakfast (even though continental) is robust and the books in each room are a perfect combination. I'm already planning a trip to NYC just because I want to stay there again. Location can't be beat wither!
