Overview

About Library Hotel

A ten floor hotel, with each floor dedicated to a category of reading, and each bedroom to a specific theme. From romance to astrology - choose your reading matter and relax.

The Library Hotel in New York City is the first hotel to arrange guestroom floors, room art and reading material in the 10 major categories of the Dewy Decimal System* of book classification. Floor choices include Science and Math, Language, Literature, History and Technology - with sub topics further defining individual rooms. Each of the 60 rooms is uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category or floor it belongs to.

Fashioned from a landmark 1900 brick and terra cotta structure this building has been beautifully restored into a mansion-style hotel of the highest caliber.

Other distinctive features Library guests have at their disposal include the Writers Den a beautiful mahogany paneled room with working fireplace and The Poetry Garden, our sparkling greenhouse.

The Writers Den and Poetry Garden have French doors leading to an elegant outdoor terrace with seating for fair weather enjoyment. The Writers Den and the Poetry Garden are ideal places to relax alone with a book or enjoy the city skyline. These rooms may also be used to host a private social or corporate event. The Reading Room on the 2nd Floor is where guests can find 24 hour refreshments, such as coffee, tea, cappuccino and pastries.

Features:
Each of the ten guestroom floors of the Library is dedicated to one of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System*:

  • Social Sciences
  • Literature
  • Languages
  • History
  • Math
  • Science
  • General Knowledge
  • Technology
  • Philosophy
  • The Arts
  • Religion

Personal service goes one step further as guests may request their room based on their personal interests (subject to availability) such as the Literature floor featuring subjects from Poetry or The Classics to Erotic Literature. Such intriguing room themes offered on the Math and Science floor are Astronomy and Botany. Law, Eastern Religion, Money, and New Media are also among the 60 eclectic themes available on the room menu at The Library Hotel. Choose your favorite or explore the unique delights of each room, one visit at a time.

General Info on Dewy Decimal System -
Most library users know the general structure of Melvil Dewey's decimal classification. First published in 1876, the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC)* divides knowledge into ten main classes, with further subdivisions. More than 200,000 libraries in 135 countries use the Dewy Decimal System to organize their book collections. Its simple and logical framework is based on the principle of decimal fractions as class marks, which are expandable to make further subdivisions.
