The staff was extremely friendly and loved the location!
The beds were not comfortable. And the air conditioning was not available to be put on, in the month of December. They suggested opening a window, but then unfortunately when we returned there were lots of bugs and mosquitos in the room.

Boutique hotel with great amenities. Excellent staff. Junior suite was so nice and clean. Loved that each floor had a different theme.
On site restaurants had limited to no options for gluten free, organic.

Library Hotel is conveniently located between Bryant Park and Grand Central Station (both are just a few minutes walk away), and thus close to two subway stations as well as two of the three Coach USA bus stations connecting Manhattan with Newark Airport. It‘s a long, narrow historic building with a total of 13 stories, and a beautiful facade with art deco elements. Despite the great location in Midtown, the hotel was conveniently quiet - we stayed on the 12th floor, lower floor levels might be more impacted by traffic noise. The hotel is themed around books and libraries, also the hotel rooms (ours contained books on Asian religions). On the 1st floor, the reception is on the right and the restaurant on the left. On the 2nd floor, a lovely reading room can be used as guest lobby. Coffee, tea, soft drinks, granola bars and fresh fruit are available free of charge 24/7, which is a very nice touch. On the top floor (which is actually the 13th floor yet labeled as 14th floor as 13 is an unlucky number), a rooftop bar provides stunning views of the nearby buildings - drinks are served from 4pm, but the rooftop terrace is accessible 24/7. Our deluxe room was on the 12th floor and came with a comfy queen-sized bed, an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub that also served as a shower, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion) in small bottles (that were refilled daily), and bathrobes. The window could be opened, which we appreciated, but the room also had an A/C. Despite the window, the room was rather dark, which we did not mind at all. Apart from the convenient location, we liked the reading room and rooftop bar most. The hotel has many nice little touches, staff was very friendly, and our room well kept.

My cousin and his wife were on the 7th floor and it was the first time I met her and I haven't seen my cousin in 30+ years. I was wondering if you had a senior citizens discount?
Can't think of anything at the moment.
