The Library Hotel by Library Hotel Collection, New York
Perfect place for a couple of book nerds
This hotel was a perfect choice for our quick pass through NYC. We wanted to visit the NY library to take a quick peek at a rare book so needless to say we are a bit nerdy. Billy the concierge was a delight, called me before our arrival and upgraded our room. Rooms are cozy and comfy and loaded with books. Location near Bryant Park is a very nice section of town. Would definitely stay again. Rooftop bar and all night hotel library with books, coffee and treats give this hotel an A++
