It is never easy trying to decide where to stay in a big city, especially one with so many choices! New York City is the city of all cities, and it can definitely be hard to figure out where to stay, especially if you are new to the Big Apple. Next time I go to Manhattan, I will not hesitate to go back to the Library Hotel. This beautiful book themed boutique hotel was beyond perfection!
There are just so many amazing features the hotel has to offer, not only that, but it is unique inside and out. As you probably know, location is everything when deciding where to stay. The great thing about this gem of a hotel is it is only 4, I repeat 4 blocks from Times Square! How could anything be better you might ask?! Well it gets better, it is such a short walk, yet it is hidden from the bright lights and bustle of Times Square.
Close to the Library hotel is the New York Library itself, I mean you can actually see the Library from the hotel entrance, not a bad view I might add! There are so many cute restaurants and shops within a few seconds walking distance. If you don’t like the sound of walking, then New York City may not be the place for you. There really isn’t any other better way to experience the city than be walking. Walking allows you to absorb the culture and feel like a true New Yorker. And by that I mean, see how fast the ‘New Yorkers’ walk from block to block and count how many Halal trucks you see on the way there.
Cocktails and Appetizers: The Bookmarks Lounge
Rooftop patios in the summer are EVERYTHING and the Bookmarks Lounge has one of the coolest views in the city. Not only does it have a great view, but it is tucked away from all the noise of the downtown city. This amazing patio is located on the 14th floor of the Library Hotel and has the most delicious cocktails. They taste amazing and look pretty too as you can see from our photos above!
