Literary Locale!

Literary Locale is a meme here at A Bookish Affair on Fridays where I talk about where I've been reading lately or any other bookish locations that I feel like talking about. Feel free to grab the logo and play along!

 Sometimes there are places that you where as soon almost as you walk in the door, you know that you are going to be sad to eventually leave. This was very much my experience with the Library Hotel. Our room wasn't quite ready when we got to the hotel so we decided to wait in the Reading Room (um, every hotel should have a reading room, no?). Once we got to the Reading Room, I told my dear husband that I never wanted to leave!

All of these pictures tell you the themes of the different rooms that you can stay in. Each room is themed around a different number from the Dewey Decimal system.

Here's a close up of one of the pictures on the wall.

The Reading Room has tea, coffee, and snacks on hand whenever you want it! Amazing!

This is the view from the Reading Room. I love a cityscape!

And of course the Reading Room had lots of books!

Oh and the hotel is right on Library Way and just down the street from the New York Public Library, which was absolutely amazing.

Come back next week for the next installment of Literary Locale where I'll show you more of the Library Hotel!

Where are you reading this week?


  1. I have been waiting for this post! When I saw you post recently that you were staying at this hotel I was hoping to see these pictures! How exciting!


  2. Haha, I think we've ALL been waiting for this post! I'm not likely to make it to NY anytime soon, but if I DO this place will be top of my list of dream hotels! In fact, I might even add it to my list of 'stuff to do when the shop closes and I'm actually free for a few months'. I'm making a kind of wishlist to pick from if I have a little free time before I go into another job. It looks so gorgeous - a reading room with caffeine and snacks on tap is very underrated as a hotel must-have, I reckon! Roll on part 2! :D

    1. It's absolutely fantastic! And it's just steps away from the main branch of the NY Public Library, which is also most definitely worth a visit!

  3. Ok, I am super jealous. This hotel looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the pics.


Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
