Profile: Midtown East

Midtown East - Grand Central is where you'll find some of New York City’s most influential sights. Sample some international restaurants before beginning your sightseeing tour at Bryant Park. Head north for family festivities at Rockefeller Center.

    The location is excellent. The wine and cheese is wonderful. Coffee maker wasn’t working and some of the staff seemed unhappy. The guys at the front desk were lovely!

    The Library Hotel has a homely vibe because of its unique library theme with selection of books available in your room based on the theme of your floor. There is a dedicated reading room and a roof top terrace. Continental breakfast is served from 7:00 AM until 10:30 AM. Refreshments and snacks are available 24/7. The staff were amazing. They were not only hospitable but went above and beyond which made me feel at home. The Library Hotel is centrally located in Midtown Manhattan and in close proximity to the New York Library, Bryant Park, Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building and etc. I would highly recommend The Library Hotel.

    Other than excellent service, this hotel stands out because of its unique style - the "library hotel" - where each room has a different design and a different set of books focusing on a specific topic - I enjoyed that a lot.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We booked pettit room on Expedia for 750 Cad a night! The pettit room was not really a room, but rather a closet with a single bed! After we had complained we got upgraded to "deluxe" room of course for additional charge. The deluxe room was pathetic warn down room with loud air conditioner that kept us awake all night. The hotel advertises turndown service before bedtime, but please don't hold your breath as it never happened. Housekeeping service is extremely poor! Our room was not get cleaned by 3 o'clock, and we only got service after we complained. Breakfast was also a joke! We travel 5-7 times a year, but I never stayed in 4 star hotel that should really be awarded 2 stars rating. Bottom line : overpriced hotel with mediocre service and facilities. They talk the talk but don't walk the walk! Stay away!

    The staff at The Library Hotel offer service of the highest calibre: always ready to jump in and help in any way! John, the doorman was always cordial and helpful. The room was cleaned impeccably every day, and the amenities were top-notch. The continental breakfast was a great way to start the day, and they had everything we wanted or needed. The daily happy hour is a very generous perk after our daily walking, touring and exploring. The location of this hotel is ideal for exploring mid-town Manhattan, and just around the corner from Grand Central Station, and a hop over to Times Square, and yet no street noise. The library theme is charming, comforting and warm. Books everywhere! We will definitely return to this hotel if we make another trip to New York City, and highly recommend it to anyone!

    Special place

    This is my second stay at the Library Hotel. Worth every penny. As a former librarian, I love the Dewey decimal themed floors and the books in all the rooms. Little extras like the cheese and wine in the afternoon add to the experience. My room was super clean and the bed very comfortable. I will definitely come back again.

    Great space in the heart of the city

    Quiet, comfortable hotel, great location. Nice amenities like the second floor "reading room" with drinks and snacks, and rooftop lounge.
