SMOKING - The Library Hotel is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is prohibited in all public spaces and guest rooms.

PETS - While we love our furry friends, the Library Hotel is not pet friendly. However, our guests that need service animals for some extra help are more than welcome to bring them along.

CREDIT CARD PROCEDURES - Guests must provide a credit card on arrival to the Hotel to guarantee room, tax and incidental charges. We recommend you do not use a debit card for this. When you arrive and register, we must get authorization approval from your bank or card issuer for the amount equal to the room and taxes due for the stay as well as an additional $100 per day to allow for incidentals during your stay such as phone service, room service, and minibar items. A hold may be placed on your card account for the full authorized amount, through your date of check-out and such hold may not be released for 72 hours from the date of check-out or longer at the discretion of your card issuer. Our tip for travelers is whether you stay with us or at any other hotel, please be sure before your stay to secure a credit limit on your card that will comfortably allow for your room and taxes as well as the pre-authorization for incidentals plus all the shopping and activities you’ll want to enjoy in NYC.
