Very good 8.0
Library Hotel stay
This is a good boutique hotel, but it's nowhere near its 9.6 rating - should be more like 8.8 - 9.0. Great friendly staff and there are some nice perks (wine & cheese receptions, free continental breakfast, etc.), but the rooms are dinky (I had to upgrade - the first room was literally a shoe-box), there's no gym on-site (5 blocks away isn't fun in winter!), no lobby lounge area to speak of, and the immediate surrounding area is highly commercial (Grand Central is about 200 yards away). It's priced like an elegant 5-star hotel, but that's just not what this is. Good, not superb.

Our new “go-to” hotel in NYC
We could not have been happier with Library Hotel. The location is amazing...we arrived by train at GCT and took the subway to the airport when we left. Walked to theater two nights. Loved the brass tiles on Library Walk. Room was great, esp the poetry collection. Excellent breakfast and happy hour and late-night herbal tea. We even got a couple of advance copy books offered at the front desk. This is our new go-to hotel in NYC!

A wonderful treat to have each floor a different theme and each room and different subject. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Great small hotel!
They have a nice dining room that's a library for breakfast & wine/cheese in the late afternoon. I had a couple of meetings with clients during the day & it's very quiet. The front desk is very friendly & helpful. They helped me find Barney's sale!

Always a great stay
We always stay here when in Manhattan and have always been very pleased. As a former resident I appreciate the constant superior service here. Last its central location in Murray Hill is a nice bonus.

A cozy gem in midtown NY. So much fun; wine and cheese surrounded by all genres of literature. Very nice breakfast the next morning, along with a quiet read on the rooftop bar. I look forward to my next overnight getaway at The Library Hotel

Great place!
Wonderful! Great location for theater, shopping, food, train. Would definitely recommend. The day and night room available with snacks, coffee, tea at all hours was great. Wine and cheese 5-8 was a nice treat. Liked it all. Only reason I was a tiny bit negative was that room temp hard to control and was hot at night until we learned window was operational.

Good 6.0
NICE, but I've had nicer and more modern amenities
I felt the room was expensive, even by NYC prices, for what you got. CONS: Room only had one USB port, in the clock-radio, and we had at least 3 items that needed charging after traveling. The plug outlet in the bathroom didn't work either. We had to search behind furniture to find outlets to use. We finally unplugged a small table lamp and use its plug. The goofy electrical box mess over the desk, by the lamp outlet, is a hot mess. It should have a cover over it if it is no longer available to use...better yet, add some USB ports! Only one chair in room and no place to hang our coats. It was chilly/rainy and we had to hang our coats on the corner of the mirror. The closet was tiny and our clothes for going out filled it up. The TV didn't work. We turned it on with the remote control and then it wouldn't turn off. The volume and channel changing buttons didn't work. The slippers in the room were tiny and once a robe was used, it wasn't replaced. And finally, on our first day in the room, it was cold. We couldn't figure out how to use the thermostat to work. The front desk wasn't sure if the heat was even available to use yet. It's October and only in the 50's during the day. Hmmmmm... PROS: Pleasant front staff who had "engineer" fix everything wrong in our room that could be fixed. Our room was clean, the water was hot, and the toilet worked! The 2nd floor Library Room with refreshments was wonderful. There was always something to drink.
