Library Hotel | New York City, USA

We stayed at the Library Hotel on Madison Avenue during our second visit to New York City.  It was literally peak season with thousands of people rushing into New York to see the ball drop on New Year’s eve (which we had been told that the locals would never do) so the price of accommodations in the Big Apple wasn't for the faint hearted and even the tiniest room with no particular view can easily set you back $300USD.

I wanted something central. After having stayed in the trendy SoHo district, it was nice to have a new perspective and be a little closer to the uptown shops and sights.  This boutique hotel is conveniently located close to the Grand Central Station, as well as the magnificent New York Public Library.

Each room is uniquely categorised and organised in Dewey Decimal System  just as you would expect at a library.  Unfortunately, we were assigned to the Computer room, which was, and yes you guessed it right, filled with information technology related books.  The room itself wasn't bad.  Albeit small, it had everything that would be required for an upmarket boutique hotel and the bed was really comfy.  The hotel provides evening canapés and wines as well as continental breakfast and all of these are taken in its famously comfy reading room (making it this a unique added bonus). 

And to put icing on the cake, the Library Hotel has one of the most popular rooftop bars in the NYC which in winter can be a magnificent place to meet up.
