The rooftop bar staff are not as hospitable as the rest of the hotel staff.
The library hotel set itself from others by offering a lot of extras that you will never get in any other hotels in New York: Free breakfast, wine and cheese, business centre, roof top bar. Overall a very pleasant experience

The friendliness of the staff

Typical to the location - lots of street noise in the Room, bar on the top floor is cold and lacks atmosphere out of season.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, gave a warm welcome. Lovely decor, comfortable rooms. Great location! Love the complementary cheese and wine in the lounge. Madison & Vine restaurant - good american food with buzzing atmosphere.

Staff very friendly Decor fabulous Central to lots of places we wanted to visit

There was nothing about this hotel that we could fault.
An oasis of tranquility away from the bustle on New York City, yet in a fantastic central location. The staff couldn't have been more helpful & the complimentary breakfast, evening cheese and wine & all day coffee and snacks in the reading room was a welcome touch.

Very comfortable hotel in a convenient location with friendly staff; nice breakfast room with complimentary wine and cheese each evening and hot drinks and pastries whenever required. Nicely presented room, small (as described) but plenty big enough for us. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

A few small things but nothing worthwhile mentioning.
A complete package to our liking. Cosy, well balanced, ... We loved it !
March 1, 2015
I had to tear myself away from my room to venture out. My room was cozy & comfortable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Free wine and cheese every day, coffee 24/7 and surrounded by books. Bar on top. Central location you can walk everywhere. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

One of the friendliest hotels we've ever stayed in in NYC. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Excellent continental breakfast, fantastic beds, "reading room" that gave us space to enjoy visiting family. Junior suite was a great value for family of 4. We will definitely return!

From the smiling receptionist to the courteous staff at the complimentary breakfast and wine reception in the evening, this hotel is a pleasure to stay at when in New York. The rooms are small, but spotlessly clean, and the location is wonderful. We had a lovely time!
February 24, 2015
Room was slightly on the small side. Stay preferably on an upper floor
The librarians who look after the hotel and, of course, the location.
February 22, 2015
Great staff who will go out of their way to help you. Excellent cheese and wine event every evening in the hotel.

Library Hotel was just one of the best hotels I've been. I stayed there for 2 nights with my Mom, whose a book lover and was visiting me in NY. This hotel has everything a book lover wants and dreams of. Plus the staff is 10 stars! They are so nice and thoughtful. From the staff at the front desk to the nice ladys at breakfast. I think that is really important. They made us feel comfortable and help us with EVERYTHING we needed.Sometimes we go to a nice hotel, but the staff are not the most friendly. Not in this hotel. They are beyond nice and friendly. In the end they even gave us 2 books to take home. Can ask for a better treatment. Library Hotel is a must and I'm definitely going back there!

Location and comfort of hotel was perfect. Staff very friendly and helpful, would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Really helpful, friendly, sincere staff!

The hotel has a "library" that is open 24/7 where you can get hot tea or coffee and some pastries, read a paper or a book. Invaluable when you come back late at night after watching some show, or if you have arrived before check-in time and want to catch your breath before hitting the city.

manhattan prices and room sizes
location, library theme and 'useful' extras (ie. free 24/7 snacks and beverages in lounge rather than gyms, spas etc)

We didn't experience anything negative.
The staff was great...Alvin was so ready to help us. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved the breakfast and wine and cheese. We would definitely return. Also, loved the location. The hotel felt good!

The location was excellent, in the middle of midtown right next to grand central station and the libary. The staff were very polite, service was excellent and informative. Hotel rooms were very clean and comfortable. Decorated to a good standard and we'll equiped.

Petit room is not only extremely small but has also a very small bed, was sold as a double room with a bed which is normally for a single person good. Not possible to order egg dishes for breakfast.
Small Hotel, different to other hotels, nice bar on the roof. Wifi included, perfect location.

Window in the room was a bit draughty and could hear the traffic.
Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The reading room was a bonus with drinks and pastries through the day and cheese and wine in the evening. Didn't need to bring my kindle as the hotel had a fantastic selection of books

they didn't clean the room till nearly 3pm - this is not acceptable.
