The AMAZING Library Hotel!

I told you it was amazing, didn't I? The Library Hotel is a 60 room boutique hotel on the corner of 41st and Madison, just one block from the New York City Public Library. All the rooms are numbered by the Dewey Decimal System (doesn't that throw you back to elementary school?!), with each of the 10 floors having a different "theme," based on one of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System - Social Sciences, Languages, Math and Science, Technology, The Arts, Literature, History, General Knowledge, Philosophy and Religion. We stayed in room 800.004, Dramatic Literature. The hotel was so comfortable and just the perfect place to curl up with coffee and a book (something I, unfortunately, didn't get the chance to do!). The staff and the other guests (most of who were British or Australian!) were all so friendly and it was just a fantastic place to stay!
