NileGuide Expert Says:
The Library Hotel is home to Madison & Vine restaurant (on the first floor) and Bookmarks Lounge (14th floor), which serves up signature cocktails like the Capote or the Great Gatsby.
The Library Hotel, built in 1900, was inspired by the New York Public Library, which sits one block away. Each of its 10 floors is dedicated to a major category of the Dewey Decimal System--Social Sciences, Literature, Languages, History, Math & Science, General Knowledge, Technology, Philosophy, The Arts and Religion--and each room is stocked with books relating to the relevant topic. The 60 comfortable guest rooms come in three categories, including petite (single or full), deluxe queen, or junior suite king. All feature mahogany appointments, sizeable desks, and marble bathrooms. Wine and cheese and a complimentary daily breakfast are served in the hotel's reading room; other public spaces include a writer's den with a fireplace and flatscreen TV and a rooftop terrace.
