A hidde gem
we have stayed at the Library Hotel several times and have always enjoyed our stay.Great location near Bryant Park, Grand Central, The library, Times Square, and the theater district. The staff is always courteous and professional, rooms are clean, and the complimentary breakfast and happy hour on the second floor is a big bonus when it comes to keeping your budget in line. Rooms are clean, not large but comfortable, and the 14th floor bar is a wonderful way to end the day. This hotel is a hidden treasure in a city full of hotels. I would not stay anywhere else.

Small room, but upscale and comfortable.
We had the least expensive room, which was very small, but comfortable. The breakfast room is delightful, with its grand piano, books, and view of the New York Public Library. The service was friendly and impeccable. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will return frequently, though probably booking a larger room from now on.
