“A book-lovers' paradise between Grand Central and Bryant Park. Literary themed rooms and writer's den. The rooftop bar and poetry garden offer excellent cocktails and city views. Complimentary continental breakfast is served in the Reading Room. A truly unique place to absorb art and culture.”

Hotel Review

Paradise for bibliophiles; each floor is themed after the ten main categories of the Dewey Decimal System, and the rooms are adorned with books based on a specific topic. There’s also a second-floor reading room, a writers' den, and a roof-top poetry garden. It’s not just a concept hotel, though. The service is warm and friendly, the rooms are wonderful, and it’s location in Midtown is excellent.
