Profile: Midtown East

Profile: Midtown East

Midtown East - Grand Central is where you'll find some of New York City’s most influential sights. Sample some international restaurants before beginning your sightseeing tour at Bryant Park. Head north for family festivities at Rockefeller Center.

From seasonal traditions and summertime entertainment to popular daytime television and historic buildings, it’s easy to spend an entire day at Rockefeller Center. Don’t miss the beautiful St. Paul’s Cathedral or the stunning Chrysler Building; and finally, no visit to Midtown East - Grand Central is complete without a photo at the United Nations Headquarters and walk through Grand Central Terminal.

    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.

    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.

    This place instantly makes you happy when you walk in with the library aesthetic. The staff immediately greets you and makes you feel welcome and at home. Duke and Greg were extremely nice and accommodating. They really deserve a raise. The rooms were spectacular and every room were based on a book genre which is spectacular. Overall, everything is perfect

    Special place

    This is my second stay at the Library Hotel. Worth every penny. As a former librarian, I love the Dewey decimal themed floors and the books in all the rooms. Little extras like the cheese and wine in the afternoon add to the experience. My room was super clean and the bed very comfortable. I will definitely come back again.
