The Library Hotel

Some people love the library so much, they decided to turn it into a hotel! The Library Hotel features 6,000 volumes of books, and each room has a Dewey Decimal theme. On a look of the hotel’s website, they claim it to feel more “like a private club than a hotel.” With a location on Madision Ave. and 41 St., they’re right in the thick of things — The New York Public Library, Broadway, Midtown, Grand Central, and Times Square are a quick walk away. And what’s not to like? They offer get away packages as well (can you say Erotic Lit room or the Love room? Woo-hoo!). I think I’ll need to check this place out next time I’m in NYC!

Quick Note: I learned something today! The Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) actually owns the trademarks for the Dewey Decimal Classification. Who’da thunk?!?

    I’ve been there. It’s quite the nice little place. I’d love to be in one of the more esoteric rooms.
