Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Library Hotel

For the booksmart traveler, there are no better hotels in New York than this boutique concept in a landmark brownstone building around the corner from Grand Central Station, with its storybook opulence and reverence for the written word. Each of its 10 floors is dedicated to a category of the Dewey Decimal system, and each of its 60 rooms boasts a theme – think categories like Economics, Fairy Tales, and Love. Elegantly appointed with quilted headboards, deluxe bedding, Deco furniture, and healthy plants, rooms offer guests art and books that relate to its appointed topic. Exclusive-feeling and clubby, the Library contains over 6,000 carefully selected volumes (if those are not enough, the New York Public Library and the Pierpont Morgan Library are a quick stroll away). Making the experience all the more satisfying are the complimentary deluxe breakfast buffet, wine and cheese each evening, in-room Belgian chocolates, and afternoon snacks in the transporting second-floor reading room.
