The Library Hotel; one of New Yorks luxury boutique properties; opened on August 7 2000 after its full conversion from a turn-of-the-century 12-story office building. The intimate 60-room hotel; located on Library Way at Madison Avenue and 41st Street just steps from the majestic New York Public Library and the Pierpont Morgan Library; was designed to feel more like a private club than a hotel. Befitting its name; each hotel floor and room is classified by a Dewey Decimal system* category of knowledge - Third floor - Social Sciences; Fourth Floor - Language; Fifth Floor - Math and Science; Sixth Floor - Technology; Seventh Floor - The Arts; Eighth Floor - Literature; Ninth Floor - History; Tenth Floor - General Knowledge; Eleventh Floor - Philosophy; and Twelfth Floor - Religion. The hotel is home to over 6000 books; each title carefully picked at the Strand Bookstore; which carries the largest collection of used and rare books in NYC. The booked-lined second-floor Reading Room is where guests enjoy complimentary refreshments - deluxe continental breakfast; cappuccino; coffee; teas; cookies and fruits throughout the day; wine and cheese reception from 5-8pm Monday through Sunday evenings. * Dewey R - DDC R and Dewey Decimal Classification R are proprietary trademarks of OCLC Online Computer Library Center - Inc. and are used with permission.
