U.S. News Review

This charming boutique Midtown Manhattan hotel receives high praise from recent guests for its accommodating staff, fanciful decor and unique theme — the 10 major classifications of the Dewey Decimal System. Each of the hotel's 10 floors tastefully exhibits one of these categories from literature to technology to philosophy. The cozy accommodations also come with classic amenities, like iHome alarm clocks, Gilchrist & Soames bath products, plush robes and slippers (not to mention iconic Manhattan skyline views, in some suites). Additional amenities include complimentary breakfast, cheese and wine each evening, and free wireless Internet access — all much-appreciated perks according to previous visitors. Although some travelers describe the accommodations as slightly compact, even by New York standards, most cite a very pleasant stay overall thanks to the hotel's inviting ambiance and unbeatable location.
