Looks like serious luxury! I'm off to a "Budget Ibis" in Geneva in about 2 weeks, not quite the same thing at all is it?


Probably not!
The Library was very nice, and the staff were most pleasant; I'd go there again. (My top favourite hotel - of ones stayed in in the last few years - is still The Old Parsonage in Oxford, though).

That is my kind of hotel! New York really has it all. Hope you like The White Witch -- it can take some getting into, but I did enjoy it.


Yes, Lory, books everywhere in the hotel, and a 'catalogue' behind the reception desk which itself is staffed by 'librarians' - great fun!

What a wonderful place! I don't remember ever hearing about it. It seems the kind of hotel, though, that you don't want to leave, even to go sightseeing. It would be perfect for a quiet weekend away from home.

Isn't the garden room wonderful? Also liked the breakfast and wine and cheese hour.


One of my favorite NYC hotels. Enjoy!


How cool--I would love to stay there--love the bookmarks, especially the one with the type. I hope the weather is being good and it isn't too hot and humid!


Goodness, my old neighborhood! Your lovely photos make me a little homesick, well, except for the summer weather; I had quite enough of that. I hope you had the chance to visit the Morgan Library and the Research Libraries of the NY Public Library (5th Ave.).
