Such a great little hotel. Perfect place for a weekend getaway for two. Room is well-equipped. Bathroom is spacious and nice. Second floor lounge is really nice and rooftop deck is great. Location is excellent within very short walk to Library/Bryant Park and Grand Central.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A boutique hotel on library row 41street near Grand Central Terminal and NY public library, with literary themed rooms and matching books, and dewey decimal system numbered rooms. Fun and really central location, reasonably priced. However room was realky compact too much so for more than my one night stay. And a $75 charge not included in Expedia cost was added at checkout for amenities/spa which i did not use and made the cost less economical.
