JFK Airport is 15 miles away from the hotel, LaGuardia Airport is eight miles away, and Newark International Airport is 16 miles away.

Signature complimentary amenities at The Library Hotel include a continental breakfast buffet, an evening wine and cheese reception, refreshments in the Reading Room, wireless internet access, and passes to New York Sports Club. Fairy tale weddings begin at the Library Hotel. Its distinctive venues and experienced and caring staff can help create moments to last a lifetime. The spaces at the Library Hotel-from warm and traditional to softly contemporary-are the perfect choice for daytime meetings, press events, or social events. Madison and Vine, the hotel's American Bistro and International Wine Bar, serves lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Every evening, the 14th floor, featuring the Writer's Den and Poetry Garden and Terrace, transforms into Bookmarks Lounge, an intimate rooftop bar offering city views and literary-inspired cocktails.

The Library Hotel concept is inspired by the Dewey Decimal system. Each of the 10 guestroom floors honors one of the 10 categories of the Dewey Decimal System and each of the 60 rooms are uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category it belongs to. The guest rooms are well equipped with a mini bar, in-room safe, writing desk, cable TV with premium channels, DVD player with complimentary access to the DVD Library, Gilchris and Soames bath amenities, and more.
